2nd paragraph and image
On page 67, talking about the Social engagement loop, the sentence above the image doesn't align with what is shown in the image. The text says Motivating emotion, then Player Re-engagement. The image however festure Motivation emotion then Social call to action. So, which is the correct flow?
I bought my book from Amazon using the Kindle app on my iPad.

Figure 4-7 shows the social engagement loop as
Motivating Emotion ➔ Social Call to Action ➔ Player Re-Engagement ➔ Visible Progress / Reward
However, in the text and in all examples (e.g. on pp. 68 and 69), the loop is actually (and more logically) described as
Motivating Emotion ➔ Player Re-Engagement ➔ Social Call to Action ➔ Visible Progress / Reward

There are 2 code snippets:
belongs_to : level
class Level < ActiveRecord::Base
And in the next sentence:
This describes the "User has many Levels" relationship...
I think it must be:
This describes the "Level has many Users" relationship...
Because every user has only one current level (level_id), but one specific level may be achived by many users. As also said by the code snippets.
