Failure is often an excellent teacher. Unfortunately in business it is often an expensive education. Worse, no one in business wants to talk about the failures they've had.
Originally published in 2009, The Story of Gamer Zone chronicles a business from it's birth in 2005 to it's eventual death in 2006, and the fallout from such a failure. The business it follows is Gamer Zone, a LAN gaming center. This might sound like a book only for geeks, but it's really for anyone thinking of opening a business (or who currently operates a business) and for those who are curious to see an often humorous peek inside of a business startup.
Packaged in a nice eBook reader, The Story of Gamer Zone now offers bonus content not originally in the print version - questions that have been asked over the last year of publication are often answered, new pieces that didn't make the final editing cut, and interesting stories that just didn't fit within the original framework of the book are often added. Check back for frequent updates!
The eBook reader is intuitive and easy - flip right for the next page and left for the previous page, and tap the center of the page to bring up the table of contents.

The Story of Gamer Zone app is an example used in Davis's Rapid App Development classes taught at Pixel Time in Wichita, Kansas (PixelTime.com), demonstrating the use of PhoneGap and simple libraries like Monocle to make usable iPhone / iPad apps quickly.
The app is functional and I was able to read the eBook. Every time I left I had to flip my way back. You also can't tell by page numbers how to get back to where you stopped reading. The table if contents comes up sometimes when I try to flip a page.
The five stars are for the story. The story overwhelmed the shortcomings in the eReader software. The knowledge this guy writes about is priceless. If your own a business or are starting a business read this. I feel I've been through the entire process of winging a business right along side the author.
Good read but app needs some serious tweaks
Started reading and it flows, so kept on reading. Problem 1 is I don't see a way to page back. I'm a reader and this is a good story. As author states up front, could use some editing. Seems the time spent toward this app like the business plan in this story was minimal. Both fail because of lack of execution and half hearted effort. Too bad, cause both have great potential.
