Something the author recommends that we all do if we are serious about Gamification. I have already purchased two copies of the book sending the hard copy to a client and a Kindle version for me to use as a reference tool no matter where I may be. An excerpt from the podcast, Should you Gamify your Simulations?
I will forewarn you; it is not one of my shorter podcast.
