Could I be more excited? Reality is Broken is in the January issue of Vanity Fair! It’s a must read book for 2011:

“Our best hope for the future may lie in a new and rapidly growing segment of society, the oft maligned gaming class. According to visionary game designer Jane McGonigal, Reality is Broken (Penguin) and alternate reality computer games may be the best way to resurrect it, because gamers–unlike politicians–are natural collaborators, skilled problem solvers, and love a challenge. Set them on the mission of winning the battle over pollution, poverty, and global warming, and we just might be victorious.” Check out the rest of the must reads for 2011 on p.34 of Vanity Fair’s January 2011 issue.
