    I read parts of this book as a researcher of online gaming with a new interest in the world of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). The parts that I read reflect this: I read the Introduction by Grudin, Ch.34 Why We Play? by Lazzarro, and Ch.37 User-Centered Design by Pagulayan and his Microsoft Games team. I particularly liked the chapter by Grudin, a history of HCI which explains, among many others, the role of Donald Norman and his Design of Everyday Things and Emotional Design in HCI.

The parts that I read reflect this: I read the Introduction by Grudin, Ch.34 Why We Play? by Lazzarro, and Ch.37 User-Centered Design by Pagulayan and his Microsoft Games team. I particularly liked the chapter by Grudin, a history of HCI which explains, among many others, the role of Donald Norman and his Design of Everyday Things and Emotional Design in HCI. The writing is academic with a touch of professorial, so I enjoyed much of the material while also learning. The terminology is dense in the non-introductory chapters, but patience and a bit of side-reading on the Web should solve these issues. Overall, as far as I know, *the* book to read about HCI.
