    I cant believe there is no reviews about this amazing book!! ... I realy liked the writer's simple language that made me understand the simulation and how to implement it in education. After reading this book I wish all our curriculims were made by simulation! I cant believe there is no reviews about this amazing book!! ...

    Interesting but a little dry at times. I read this book in conjunction with James Gee's book about what video games can teach you - which I found very informational and engaging.
