There are some basic definitions about gamificaiton. The book discusses the impact of gamification through short (and sometimes repetitive) cases at 3 levels: corporate, employee and customer. IMO, most of the cases were discussed at a superficial level with limited descriptions. DO NOT expect details of how the gamificaiton principles were implemented in most cases (just the results suggesting that it worked).

Nonetheless, I have some reservations about all the really short 5 stars reviews submitted in early April 2013. Someone suggests that they are part of an early reviewer programme (is that also part of the game!!).
