Motivation for the extraordinary: a review of Brian Burke’s “Gamify”

I’ve just finished reading Brian Burke’s book “Gamify – How gamification motivates people to do extraordinary things”. The book is divided in to two parts – the first deals with what the value of gamification is and what makes it important, while the second part talks about designing a gamified player experience. Burke builds on his experience as an industry analyst in the field of information technology for enterprises, where he covered everything from enterprise architecture to gamification. In the book he gives  his view of what gamification is really about, what’s the right way to go about it, and what are some of the common mistakes to avoid when trying to implement gamification mechanics.

Since Burke’s pioneering 2012 gamification report at Gartner was visionary and foresaw a lot of today’s enterprise gamification , I thought reading his book would be an interesting experience. It was and I highly recommend it.
