"This is the kind of book so well writen, with so many details that even the most experienced players will benefit from it
I was so amazed by all the information written on it that I had to check myself if most of them were true information. It is!
It describes everything you need to know about macro, micro, strategies and other really useful tips you can use to improve your gameplay (pay extra attention to the tips if you are a new player, most of the things I`ve used to teach to students when I`ve used to give paid classes are in it with much more details. Also, the micro and the macro information are definitely something that every player NEED to know if they want to be decent at AoE2).
While most people think AoE2 is just mechanical skills and practice, this book shows how much game knowledge is hidden behind the curtains.
I think I have never seen an AoE2 book before, but I will most certainly not see another with so many details like this one. I highly recommend the read. Rate: 5 out of 5"
