MICHAEL WAGNER ,

Like having a drink with creators

Why grab your friends and go to hell when you can sit and read how it all happened.

DrXerox ,

Totally awesome read for us gamers!

Mr. Craddock certainly has woven a great picture into the inner workings of how this company works! Talk about your interesting personalities...

Glenn Wichman ,

Intriguing and insightful

You don't have to be a Diablo fan to get a lot out of this book. Stay Awhile and Listen takes you inside the game development world, and leaves you with a really solid understanding of how much craziness happens between having an idea and shipping a game. Probably 50% of the text are direct quotes from more than a dozen of the folks who made Diablo happen, but Craddock weaves these quotes together in a way that manages to be really informative without ever being dry. Creating an adventure game is an adventure in itself, and this feels like an adventure story.

If you are considering a career as a game developer, read this book first.
