Summary

With tongue-in-cheek humor, the creator of the award-winning Confessions of a Part-Time Sorceress takes on the self-help section, proving that the benefits of the Dungeons & Dragons game goes far beyond simple entertainment. "Shelly Mazzanoble shows us 'how she rolls', by meeting her everyday encounters with self-effacing charisma and plucky fortitude," says Dan Milano, writer for the TV series Robot Chicken.

Oh dear, not as good as it intended to be

I really wanted to like this, I tried. I shared it with girlfriends, I shared it with colleagues.
No-one writes this kind of stuff. While trying to knock down non-gamers cliched view of gamers, our mighty Shelly just goes and proves their point.
The reader is brilliant, funny, charming, makes what could be a terribly dull book slightly amusing. So full marks for Kathleen, I look forward to hearing you in more and hopefully better material.

As for this wonderful tome, Shelly focus a little more on telling the stories of the gamers you shared a table with, those sequences were brilliant. Alas the bits where you recounted your actions were a little preachy, overly dramatic and frankly disappointing.

Not on my recommended list. Though it is good to see people writing about gamers and gaming in this kind of style.
