A valuable collection
I'm from Taiwan, where western RPG is not a major trend in the gaming scene nowaday. This book is a great source of CRPG history, full of inspiring game reviews, as well as historical background, and they are fun to read even if you are not a serious gamer.
Felipe Pepe and every one involved in this - thank you for your fantastic work. The book itself came on time (during the pre-order period) and well-packaged. The smell of the book is always a nice bonus!
Profesionally done book - from content to style and looks.
Editor´s changes in version 2.0 definitely helped, book is now in pristine condition, and topic-wise there is only CPRG Book and Dungeons&Desktops from Matt Barton as the only publications extensively and thoroughly mapping history of RPGs and doing so in style. Only 2 books currently on market which are worth reading about this topic. Without using too much words: It is very good :)
The service was top notch: really fast delivery and customer support. Highly recommended.
The book was awesome
