Very Influential Book in My Life...
...and I wanted a better copy than the yellowed, paperback that I scavenged while dumpster-diving 20 something years ago. I have read a few of deRopp's other books because this one turned out to be so influential, but The Master Game is a truly unique contribution to the field of consciousness studies. It is not dated, it is classic.
