Ready Player One

Ranked #1 in Gaming, Ranked #1 in Puzzlesee more rankings.

The bestselling cult classic--soon to be a major motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg.

It was recommended by the VP of Labs at Unity as a book to help appreciate the potential of how virtual reality can impact our future. It certainly achieved that. There's no doubt that it helped my mind delve into the potential opportunities that VR will provide both for Artomatix (an AI for art creation company I helped co-found) and many other startups.
