This book is actually a part of a series to bring together pop-culture and philosophy. I'm reading the "Final Fantasy and Philosophy" book and definitely have had some issues with it. A professor I know illustrates the issue the best--he wrote a piece for the Final Fantasy book and it was accepted. However, they then wanted him to cut his 25 page essay to 13 pages, and then later to 7 pages. He refused, and pulled the essay from the book. Much like this interview, I feel like the books gloss over the real material (the academia) to focus on explaining the culture of the game.

Yeah, books like this are always intended to appeal to those whose primary interest is, in this case WoW, rather than philosophy. So they do tend to sacrifice the former for the sake of the latter. If you're really interested in philosophy, buy a book on philosophy.
