Booklist Review of Inside the E-Sports Industry

"Gone are the days when playing video games meant hunkering down in a basement for hours with a bunch of your friends, sharing pizza and chips. Now, e-sports is a billion-dollar industry with international tournaments that draw thousands of fans. This concise entry in the E-Sports: Game On series explores the history of the industry, its global impact, the business of e-sports, and its challenges. Accompanied by inset boxes with further information, color photos, and highlighted vocabulary words, the text offers plenty of background for newbies, as well as new facts for tried-and-true fans. Though some problems with the industry are glossed over (for example, women gamers who face harassment), this is a useful introduction to a high-interest topic, which should appeal to reluctant readers."
