Summary
An "innovative guide to living gamefully, based on the program that has already helped nearly half a million people achieve remarkable personal growth...McGonigal reveals a decade's worth of scientific research into the ways all games -- including video games, sports, and puzzles -- change how we respond to stress, challenge, and pain. She explains how we can cultivate new powers of recovery and resilience in everyday life simply by adopting a more 'gameful' mind-set. Being gameful means bringing the same psychological strengths we naturally display when we play games -- such as optimism, creativity, courage, and determination -- to real-world goals..." -- Book jacket
