Life is boring: filled with meetings and traffic, errands and emails. Nothing we´d ever call fun. But what if we´ve gotten fun wrong? In Play Anything, visionary game designer and philosopher Ian Bogost shows how we can overcome our daily anxiety; transforming the boring, ordinary world around us into one of endless, playful possibilities. The key to this playful mindset lies in discovering the secret truth of fun and games. Play Anything reveals that games appeal to us not because they are fun, but because they set limitations. Soccer wouldn´t be soccer if it wasn´t composed of two teams of 11 players using only their feet, heads, and torsos to get a ball into a goal; Tetris wouldn´t be Tetris without falling pieces in characteristic shapes. Such rules seem needless, arbitrary, and difficult. Yet it is the limitations that make games enjoyable, just like it´s the hard things in life that give it meaning. Play is what happens when we accept these limitations, narrow our focus, and, consequently, have fun. Which is also how to live a good life. Manipulating a soccer ball into a goal is no different than treating ordinary circumstances - like grocery shopping, lawn mowing, and making PowerPoints - as sources for meaning and joy. We can ´´play anything´´ by filling our days with attention and discipline, devotion and love for the world as it really is, beyond our desires and fears. Ranging from Internet culture to moral philosophy, ancient poetry to modern consumerism, Bogost shows us how today´s chaotic world can only be tamed - and enjoyed - when we first impose boundaries on ourselves. ungekürzt.

Addictions are things you need to deal with right away, or else you´ll end up being eaten by your bad habits; and when you want to get out of their strong hold, you can no longer do anything because it is already too late. For you to effectively stop your addictions, the most important thing you have to do before anything else is to learn what addiction really is. By doing this, it´ll be easier for you to determine if what you are experiencing right now is truly an addiction or just a simple inclination to do things. By definition, addiction is a kind of condition that takes place when a person ingests a certain substance (e.g. cocaine, alcohol, nicotine) or engages in a particular activity (e.g. shopping, gambling, sex) that can give pleasure; but the continued use or act of which can become compulsive and interfere with one´s ordinary responsibilities in life, such as health, work, or relationships.

It was an innocent mistake...All workaholic real estate broker Addison Andrews wanted was one night of pleasure, and picking the right guy was no different than shopping from a catalog, thanks to the dating app on her phone. His name was Wilder, and his profile was blank - just a sexy picture of a man who promised every wicked intention of a one-night stand. The agreement was simple. One night. No last names. But the second their bodies melded together in the sheets of their posh Manhattan hotel room, there was no denying they fit together like two pieces of a broken puzzle. There´s just one problem...Addison unknowingly swiped right on the one man she wasn´t supposed to be with - her new stepbrother. All it takes is one bite of forbidden fruit to become addicted, but being with him has major consequences for their entire family. And if anyone found out about them, the career she worked so hard to build would crumble to the ground. But Wilder Van Cleef doesn´t care about the possibility of a scandal. He wants her, and he´s willing to do whatever it takes. Please note: This is a standalone, full-length romance novel with no cliffhanger. ungekürzt. Language: English.
