Certainly a must have for anyone thinking of entertering the Virtual World market

I strongly recommend this book to anyone, who is designing or maintaining a virtual world, as well as all those, who enjoy MMORPG and MUD games.
This is not a programming manual and thus will not
teach you how to "code" a virtual world. Instead, you will learn about the history and the development of virtual worlds, their inner workings and their economies, their community and the impact they make on the lives of individuals participating in them. Bartle also writes in great detail about things such as morality, ethics and philosophy behind these worlds.
I found it to be very fascinating book, written by an excellent author (as well as the creator of the first virtual world). I'm certainly getting "Designing Virtual Worlds 2", shall it ever come out.
