Everything I Need To Know I Learned From Dungeons & Dragons by Shelly Mazzanoble is a wonderful take on a how to book on life that centers around Dungeons & Dragons.
The book showcases life lessons that playing Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) can help you with, such as religion, moving in with a significant other, dealing with your parents, changing up your routine and more through Shelly’s life as she lives in Seattle and works for Wizards of the Coast. There is even a whole chapter on kids and parenting that includes a list of books from GeekDad authors.
This book was really easy for me to read. If I hadn’t had things like work, school and a toddler to care for, I would have probably read it in one sitting. I enjoyed reading about Shelly’s adventures, both in real life and as a D&D character. It also made me really miss playing D&D quite a bit, and role playing in general. I’d love to get out my dice and roll up a character to help work out some of my issues.
Everything I Need To Know I Learned From Dungeons & Dragons is currently available in traditional paperback, Kindle and Nook versions. I highly recommend this book to anyone, but especially folks who love gaming, D&D in particular.
Note: I received a copy of this book for review purposes.
