Video review:

The semi-fictionalization of most chapters serves neither a contextualizing nor entertaining purpose, and the book lacks in so much I wanted to know about Gygax's life as a creator (and abunds in details of his life inside courts). Mind, there are some good parts and it's very well researched (though there are some ghastly a-scientifical claims here and there), but if you're a D&D nostalgic who's on the fence about reading this, re-read Elemental Evil instead.
