The videogame explosion is not just around the corner; it is already here. A few figures to prove it:
* Videogame sales today have reached near parity with movie ticket sales.
* Sales of game consoles and software in the United States and Europe alone are expected to generate more than $17 billion worth of business a year by 2003.
* The average child in the United States plays videogames forty-nine minutes a day, but videogames are not just for kids: 61 percent of videogamers are eighteen or over, and more than a quarter are over thirty-six.
* Videogame players are almost evenly split between men and women.

For many, videogames are still viewed as a minor form of entertainment, shallow at best, harmful at worst. In this groundbreaking book, Steven Pool draws on movies, painting, history, and literature to analyze what he calls the "inner life" of videogames. Traveling to Tokyo, Los Angeles, and Cannes, he inerviews leading figures in the industry, including Jeremy Smith, head of Core Design (home of Lara Croft), and Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari. Tracing their history in order to predict where they are headed, he argues that videogames are a revolutionary force in popular culture. At the dawn of the twnty-first century, videogames are where movies were at the dawn of the twentieth. With increasing investments of talent, capital, and technological creativity, they will become an art form in their own right.
Hailed as "essential reading" and "a seminal work" in Britain where it was published earlier this year, Trigger Happy provides every reader with a thoughtful, witty, and insightful analysis of what makes videogames work. For the uninitiated, it offers an eye-opening and bright instructive look at an entertainment phenomenon that will become more and more a part of our erveryday world.
