Magic the Gathering

I imagined this book is a fantasy about dragons,castle,princess and each but when I start listening to this book it is a gamer's guide. If we are not close with this game,then take this book. The author's play style is very explicit that everyone will surely appreciate the approaches of the game. I am not easy with this game but when I held this book, I described how this works.
