John Orman
Good discussion of the basics of game design, starts with review of all games throughout history, going back to ancient Egypt. Board games, analog and digital electronic games, then through all the modern game type, such as First Person Shooter.
Covers Sound, distribution and marketing, with review questions. Education and Travel games, plus how to get work in the game industry.
I ended up liking this book more for its historical review of games than its game design discussion!
