Max Brooks on Minecraft and Why Computer Games are Good for Children's Learning

"Way back in the 90s when I switched on my first edition of Sid Meier’s Civilization I realised that I was learning more about global history than I was in any of my college classes. And it was fun!"

Known for his apocalyptic zombie horror novel World War Z, bestselling author Max Brooks is also a pasionate advocate for computer games not just as a pastime but also as a tool to help us learn and develop in a variety of different ways.

Here, exclusively for Waterstones, he discusses his own vision of the Minecraft world, Minecraft: The Island and explains why he thinks we need to open our eyes to the real potential of computer games.
