Excellent research into the social aspects of MUDs.
First off, I'm a college freshman and a MUDder. I found this book in UNLV's library after looking for a book for my sociology class. I picked it up and flipped through it, and decided to check it out. It was a couple of weeks before I actually sat down and started to read it. I do have to say that Ms. Cherny has masterfully dissected what a social MUDder is. Insightful, Entertaining, and Exact, this book is an excellent read for a MUDder.
