Failure is an excellent teacher.
Unfortunately in business it is often an expensive education.
Worse, no one in business wants to talk about their failures.
So what is The Story of Gamer Zone? Ages ago, a LAN Gaming center was opened at Harry & Broadway in Wichita, Kansas. For two years Gamer Zone was a gamer gathering point.
This is the story of Gamer Zone’s rise and eventual fall. It’s told from my perspective – the guy who took the most hours behind the counter, the guy who took responsability, and eventually the guy who took the fall. It covers all the successes and failures. It also covers the aftermath of such a failure.
There’s more than one way to look at the book – it’s either a historical account of a business, or it’s a learning tool. Take your pick. It’s geeky in some places, but the focus is on the business aspects, not the video games that were involved.
