Hi everyone,

At the end of the last UX book club, thoughts on the next book to discuss were talked about without a compromise. I brought up game design as a topic and as a result, wanted to offer up the following book for the next meeting.

Seductive Game Design by Stephen Anderson

You can get more information about the author here, but regardless of if we read his book in this group, I think his work is profound and definitely worth the time to research what he's up to. You can also view his slideshare account here.

Thanks for the great event last week. Looking forward to the next one.

We're reading Seductive Interaction Design down here at UX Book Club Champaign-Urbana next month, and I agree -- it looks like a great book.
