10.24.12 The Masters of Doom guy writes about Rockstar Games and the GTA series. The book also followed Jack Thompson and his crusade, both leading to the Hot Coffee incident and its aftermath. It's a decent book, if not a tiny bit sensational just like Masters of Doom was. I found a lot of details interesting but also definitely on the outside. You can really tell that Rockstar didn't cooperate with this book specifically and that all of the author's quotes are pulled from previous interviews. There's a lot of "...he said later" involved. But whatever. I got to find out just a little bit more about how Rockstar works, how essential the Houser brothers really were in the cultivation of one of my favorite game series, and got a little insight into their culture. Worth reading for that.
