Book Review: Enterprise Games: Using Game Mechanics to Build a Better Business

Book Review: Enterprise Games: Using Game Mechanics to Build a Better Business by Michael Hugos: Publisher- O'Reilly: ISBN- 13: 978-1449319564 

Enterprise Games: Using Game Mechanics to build a Better Business is one latest book on gamification in enterprise.

Recently, I completed my gamification course from University of Pernsylvania taught by Kevin Werbach, so got interested in this book. At many places book digress from gamification and venture into serious games. Book is written in pretty simple language and style which put very little demand on your nerve cells.


Disclaimer: I did not get paid to review this book, and I do not stand to gain anything if you buy the book. I have no relationship with the publisher or the author. I got electronic format of book from publisher for review.

Further reading: There are several books on similar topic. The Gamification of Learning and Instruction: Game-based Methods and Strategies for Training and Education by Karl M. Kapp, Gamification by Design: Implementing Game Mechanics in Web and Mobile Apps by Gabe Zichermann, Reality Is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World by Jane McGonigal, etc
