I recently finished reading A Theory of Fun for Game Designers by Raph Koster, and it was an absolutely fabulous read. I definitely recommend it. It was light-hearted enough that it's easy to pick up and put down as a casual reader or bathroom book -- very good stuff.

The cartoons on every opposing page in the book are hilarious as well -- there are tons of them in the book.
