A thorough, objective, and well-paced exploration of the rise of Richard Garriott, ending just as his star had fully risen with the release of Ultima VI. There are a few minor translation issues here and there (the original text is in Italian), but nothing too intrusive.

The author has packed this book full of original interviews with members of the development teams who don’t often get a public voice. Plenty of fascinating insights into the culture of Origin Systems and the early games industry
