Reviews - What do customers think about The Battle for Azeroth: Adventure, Alliance, and Addiction in the World of Warcraft (Smart Pop series)?

Starts out well and finishes strong  Aug 6, 2007
This is a collection of essays on WoW. I found the first 7 essays very informative and enjoyable. The last 5 essays seemed to be more complaints of people who live with WoW players and not so interesting accounts of addictive behavior.

Part 2 of the book gives background and historical examples for each of the classes available to WoW players. This was very interesting provides insight into the way the classes were designed by Blizzard.
The Battle of WoW Addictiton  Mar 8, 2007
This book is very humorous & very serious look at "The World of Warcraft", packed with short articles & essays about nearly every facet of the king of all MMORPG's. Entertaining & informative, I'm happy I took a chance on this book.
As most players of WoW know, this game can really be addicting! If you want to give up other vices, say smoking, you can by playing WoW, you won't have time for a cigarette, or you can loose weight! You won't have time to fix a proper meal!
The contributors to this book address all of this, and other such subjects as the unique economy of "Azeroth", hacking, cheating, & even where our history & legends have been adapted into WoW.
This is a fun book for any WoW player. Enjoy!
Bit of a let down  Dec 18, 2006
Think of this book as more of a collection of random blog posts related around World of Warcraft. There was no real cohesion among the authors. I did really enjoy some of the early chapters, but the end of the book felt like a publisher looking for filler. This information could have been a single series on a website blog somewhere.
