Book Recommendations


Suffering Is Optional

by Cheri Huber

So it’s by my favorite Buddhist teacher, Cheri Huber. I’m very inspired by Buddhist practices. I practice Zen Buddhism myself. I think that gameplay and Buddhist practice are both a way to arrive at a similar approach to life. That’s another good book.

Finite and Infinite Games

by James P. Carse

So anyone who is interested in philosophy and looking at games as a way of life, that’s a really good one.
