The book is very easy to understand and yet spares no detail
I own most of the books in the Permier Press Game Development Series and I have read through most of them, but what I really appreciated about this book was the authors focus on the subject. As much as I enjoy brushing up on windows programming and re-learning a little bit of C/C++, the author wasted no time and got right to the focus of the book; game scripting.

A HULK of a scripting book
I have been reading internet articles for like 2 months on scripting and none of them are any good. I thought that I could save money and just read articles, but it was a HUGE waste of time then I found Game Scripting Mastery mentioned on Gamedev.net, and I sucked it up and threw down my money, and I have been VERY happy with this book. It's the only book on the subject that actually starts with nothing and ends with an actual scripting system pluged into a C++ game and it all works. Also, the author shows how to integrate other popular scripting languages. This book has everything you need to know to write your own scripting system OR to integrate an already existing scripting language -- very highly recommended.

too much explanation
you want to use scripting in order to work faster. reading this book takes a lot of time. if you have some knowledge of scripting and compiling it's somehow frustrating. anyway if you dont have any knowledge or want to learn more (and use this knowledge applied to games) this is a great book that will take you to an expert level.
