Publisher's Summary

Most players of Dungeons & Dragons are men, yet storytelling and roleplaying come so naturally to women. So where are all the female gamers? The answer is - everywhere!
Confessions of a Part-time Sorceress is a smart, humorous examination of the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game from a female gamer's point of view. The book delves into the myths and realities of gamer stereotypes. It explains how to build a character for a D&D game, how to shop for gear, how to play, and how to find the perfect gaming group, all the while exploring the things that make the D&D game a rewarding and recurring social experience for both men and women.

Any additional comments?

I had just finished Of Dice and Men and wanted something similar. I had seen the hobby through the initiated perspective but I wanted an outsiders view on the game so I picked this book up. I'm about 3/4 of the way through and it's been painful to listen to.

Everything is so vapid and shallow. I really want there to be more girls playing RPGs but this book is an insult to the few that do. At times she breaks the number 1 rule of gaming and thats "Don't argue with the GM" especially on none important points like if they're in a mall or not. I'm reserving full judgment till I finish the book but it's not looking good.

Pure Drek!

It's like Wizards of the Coast found the dumbest woman that works for them and asked her to write a terrible book about DnD.
