Toronto author and interactive developer Daniel Stern has released his new video game success philosophy entitled The Zen Art of Playing Video Games: How to Play Video Games in a New Way. The book is not a manual on how to succeed in video games but rather on how to succeed in life through video games – I have downloaded a copy of the book and will be offering a review in a few days.
Stern has been developing his success philosophy on video games since that age of 6 when he was first able to install a video game on to his father’s DOS-based computer. After perfecting it for over 15 years he has released the first in a series of many installments describing this philosophy in detail.
The book is brief and meant to create a dialog about what the reader can learn from video games and how he can get more from the time spent playing them. It is designed for a person who spends a lot of their time playing video games, but is also appropriate for someone who just finds the topic of digital entertainment interesting.
As a special promotion, the eBook has been released for a limited time at a special introductory price of pay-what-you-can with a suggestion to make a donation if you like the book.
