Here's another paperback donated by the ABC (Arrse Book Club).

Fun Inc by Tom Chatfield, reviewed by Pat Kane in 'The Independent' as

"Those of us who have been dented in a tender financial place by the latest tera-byte crunching games platform may be up for a little intellectual justification of our Xmas spending. So here are two crackers: Tom Chatfield's Fun Inc. is the most elegant and comprehensive defence of the status of computer games in our culture I have read, as well as a helpful compendium of research."

The auction will end at 1800 on 25th October, and includes postage to the winning bidder. All proceeds to Holidays for Heroes.

Fun Inc. is the most elegant and comprehensive defence of the status of computer games in our culture I have read, as well as a helpful compendium of research. The numbers surrounding the sector are certainly thudding. By the end of 2008, annual sales of video games -- not including consoles or devices -- was $40 billion, comfortably outstripping the movie business. In the same year, Nintendo's employees were more profitable per head than Google's. The sheer pervasiveness of game experience -- 99 per cent of teenage boys and 94 per cent of teenage girls having played a video game - means that instant naffness falls upon those who express a musty disdain for the medium. In fact, as Fun Inc. elegantly explains, computer game-playing has a very strong claim to be one of the most vital test-beds for intellectual enquiry.
