An excellent, well written story into the rise of Rockstar (R*) Games. Driven with passion and a vision that couldn't be compromised, Sam Houser built from the ground up a powerful and influential gaming company. At times, drowned in controversy and scandal, nothing could stop the team at R* from pushing new boundaries and doing in the game market what nobody else would dare.

Highly recommended for all fans of R* gaming titles and those interested in the gaming business. A lot can be learned from R* experiences in the gaming market.
