Having bought and read the book over Christmas break, I have to say that I found it to be just as lacking as Mr. Nordlinger's interview. The essays which don't completely fail at conveying the philosophical concepts they aspire to are usually utterly void of WoW knowledge or content. If you're the kind of person who lives and breathes philosophy, you'll rage at this book because of how far it has bastardized and corrupted the original concepts. if you live and breathe WoW, you'll be frustrated because over 50% of the authors have clearly never gotten a character above level 20 and the extent of their analogy between WoW and philosophy consists of "HURR DURR PLAY WOW BECOME UBERMENCH" and "Blizzard is evil for delivering bans to people who try to crash their game."And if you are neither a big fan of WoW or a big fan of philosophy, why read this book? As a fan of both, I did not find it worth the time or price.
