I cheated and listened to the "book review" segment. Awesome stuff and very, very appreciated. The only teensy tiny criticism of an otherwise stunning review is that there's no mention of the free online bonus chapters and their content, or all of the extra content available on the book's official Web page on this very site. That's nitpicking though!

Wow! I'm so proud of that

Wow! I'm so proud of that review. The host couldn't have been more positive. Yay!

I like his description so much I think I'll start using it myself. I liked the part about how the book ties together old and modern games.

Yes, some of his summaries

Yes, some of his summaries of the book by him and what it entails were the best yet that I've heard. It's hard for US to properly describe the book because we're so close to it.

The last online bonus chapter gets released next month, another review or two will be posted, a possible deluxe Italian edition, and other possible language translations, but otherwise the book is pretty much in its home stretch now of prime English-language coverage. All told, I think we did good with it. The whole experience has been very educational. Hopefully we can even more luck with the documentary. I'm also hoping for good things with "Wii Fitness for Dummies" since it will be sold alongside fitness books.
