This tome is built entirely around the marriage between pleasure and learning. If material brings you pleasure, you are far more likely to retain it. Games being fun, or simulations being intriguing and engaging, actually empower the user to learn from their content.

That all games teach is a message sometimes lost in the detraction of video games.

Good video games allow people to create their own "music", to compose a symphony from their own actions, decisions, movements, and feelings. They allow people to become "pros", to feel and act like an expert soldier, city planner, world builder, thief, tough guy, wizard and a myriad of other things. They allow people to create order out of complexity, to gain and feel mastery, and to create new autobiographies, careers and histories.

In short, the book is all about showing how gaming can empower people.
