Read in October, 2011

An interesting insight in the making of one of the greatest video games of all time, both the programming and design perspective and the human side of things: one one side the personal dynamics at Broderbund, Jordan's thoughts, insecurities and personal ramblings, on the other a perspective on the technology of the time and how iconic elements like the white mouse and the Shadow Man came to be.
These unedited diaries are uncorrected and non-novelized, so they aren't always an easy read, especially in the latter part where the thoughts become more personal and disjointed and there is little about game making per se. In modern terms, think of this more as a collection of blog posts rather than a biography.
