    I’m really enjoying these podcasts. Thanks for sharing your insights.

    Not sure I said the book “sucks”, but you are right that it could have been better from my perspective. The problem with any publication is that it often has to pander to the lowest common denominator in order to have the widest target market possible.

    For those of us who are beyond the “intro” stage to a topic, publications can easily fall flat.

    Thanks for taking the time to put together your thoughts. Lots of work to do a podcast. Appreciate the effort. Perhaps there should be a twitter chat for gamification. See http://bit.ly/ChatSched for more info on all the twitter chats.
