A fantastic study on the subject. Honestly, the book was a lot less about gender than it advertised itself to be, but that didn't detract from it at all. What I liked most was that the book was very approachable for people who aren't heavily involved with new media studies. Though the media she's studying is dated by now, this book formed a really integral part of a larger lesson plan on gender online, especially in MMORPGs. Good book!

A book that deserves to be much more broadly known. Highly readable ethnography of a MUD that manages to avoid being dated at all, rather casting a new light on contemporary online societies.

Excellent discussion of race, gender and class without being academic cant; terrific insights into methodology.

Above all, though, an enjoyable and insightful read, rare for any academic book.
