Today I am mostly reading Lets go Dizzy: The Story of the Oliver Twins. Very recommend.

Wow... that was a revelation. Finished the book late last night.

Not going to spoil the book for anyone but I highly recommend it if you're a game dev that's ever been fucked over by a publisher. It's inspiring (among other emotions) to read that it also happened to the best of them.

This is the first book I've read cover to cover in about thirty years, as I don't normally have the patience for it.

Plus, mine is signed by Philip and Andrew Oliver, so it'd be rude to leave it on a shelf.

10/10.

I was editing. Didn't fancy typing all that into a shoutbox reply!

GfK, Thanks for your recommendation. Bought the pdf version of the book.
Some books have that effect, where you want to complete it before putting it down.
I remember completing the book "Masters of Doom" many years back. A month back I stopped halfway through reading of 'Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus "Notch" Persson and the Game that Changed Everything'.
