A Gamer's Alphabet is the ultimate crossover gift for our age, a book that can actually bring together video game-obsessed kids and their often perplexed parents.
     
If you can decipher the following sentence, you don't need this book:

     "This open beta game is in third-person but first-person is unlockable if you know the cheat code or install your own mod, but either way, for the best attack on the boss on this level, try to grab that power-up!" 

     Almost any 9-year old could translate for you but if you don't have access to one, try this book instead.
