"This book is a hidden treasure that I would not normally have picked up, but I am very very glad I did. Michael Hugos, the author is an accomplished practitioner and innovator bringing his real life experience to a potentially academic subject. Highly recommended for anyone looking to understand the practicalities, practices and pragmatism required to introduce a radical new concept--gaming--into business and business processes."
