Masters of Doom is essentially the history of iD software, one of the most recognised developers in the computer game industry. Told in a narrative form, Kushner weaves together a tale of two scruffy dressed gamers and their rise (or fall, depending on the character) of their development company. If you're interested in gaming history, this is worth a read.
