Excellent action-adventure with Cthuluesque creatures from other dimensions and a somewhat plausible magic system.

Much like a Charlie Stross "Laundry" novel -- being British, and having an underfunded secret UK government agency determine

Agile Experience Design by Lindsay Ratcliffe

I'm disappointed, I wanted this to be better.

Vague writing.

Wordy.

Too long to be a good description of Agile. See "Agile Samurai" for that.

Description of Experience Design is not nearly good enough.

Albert Einstein
“The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend a personal God and avoid dogmas and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description.”
Albert Einstein

Robert Aitken
“The Buddha's original teaching is essentially a matter of four points -- the Four Noble Truths:

1. Anguish is everywhere.
2. We desire permanent existence of ourselves and for our loved ones, and we desire to prove ourselves independent of others and superior to them. These desires conflict with the way things are: nothing abides, and everything and everyone depends upon everything and everyone else. This conflict causes our anguish, and we project this anguish on those we meet.

3. Release from anguish comes with the personal acknowledgment and resolve: we are here together very briefly, so let us accept reality fully and take care of one another while we can.

4. This acknowledgement and resolve are realized by following the Eightfold Path: Right Views, Right Thinking, Right Speech, Right Conduct, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Recollection, and Right Meditation. Here "Right" means "correct" or "accurate" -- in keeping with the reality of impermanence and interdependence.”
Robert Aitken, The Dragon Who Never Sleeps: Verses for Zen Buddhist Practice

“When we speak of the sangha, we speak of the "arya sangha," which means the "exalted sangha". At the time of the Buddha this referred to the arhats and bodhisattvas, the disciples who studied under him and achieved various levels of realization through their practice. But now who is the arya sangha? It is all of us, all of the practitioners of the present time. The moment we take refuge, which is to begin on the path, we hold the title of "sangha". As such, you should understand that you are one of the Three Jewels. You shouldn't put the Three Jewels outside of yourselves; you should always think of yourselves as being one of the Three Jewels—and that includes your body, your speech, and your mind.”
Dhomang Yangthang, The Union of Dzogchen and Mahamudra

Gil Fronsdal
“One of the things that kills Buddhist spiritual life is excessive seriousness.”
Gil Fronsdal

Sharon Salzberg
“Thinking we are only supposed to have loving & compassionate feelings can be a terrible obstacle to spiritual practice.”
Sharon Salzberg, A Heart as Wide as the World: Stories on the Path of Lovingkindness
