Not book are you looking for?



A deeply thoughtful, deeply irreverent look at the mythology of play, Gods and Games ties together Joseph Campbell's approach to myth and religion with Johan Huizinga's view of our species as Homo ludens — "Man the Game-player" — which suggests that play is a central aspect of the human spirit and human culture."A comprehensive and clear review.... loaded with quotations both pertinent and entertaining that may be eye-openers both to traditional religionists and readers who may never have thought about play in a philosophical or religious sense." —Publishers Weekly

Could not let the book down Sure not a literary master piece, but as one of the reviewers stated, it will keep you turning the pages.

Demotte Simpson

Exciting to read and hard to put down

Ethan Anderson

It was damn awesome, sweet, the way of describing the romance was just marvellous
