Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World

We are living in a world full of games. More than 31 million people in the UK are gamers. In this book, visionary game designer Jane McGonigaI challenges conventional thinking and shows that games - far from being simply escapist entertainment - have the potential not only to radically improve our own lives but to change the world.
