    so, with all the down time I have found myself having and waiting for school to open up here. I found this book, Paid to Play an Insiders guide to Video Game Careers. I have been reading it, picked it up a few weeks ago and I am enjoying it. Each chapter lays out the good bad and ugly of different careers in the business. The book itself is illustrated by Gabe from Penny Arcade, a plus for me as i like his work. So here are my questions.

    1. Anyone else read this book?

    2. As there are many people in "the biz" on the board, if you read it does what they say ring true? Is it more who you know that can vouche for you and your work?

    3. Are there more books like this that anyone is aware of that is just reader friendly?

    That is mostly all the questions i have at the moment. Twin Twist was actually really cool about answering questions the last time I had posted my intrest in switching careers to the game industry. I appreciate everyone's thoughts on the subject.
