[RPG] the single most influential book every GM should read?


If you had your career as a GM to start again, what book would you wish to have read before you started on the path of learning to be a GM.

This needn't be restricted to RPG source and rulebooks of course.

Best Answer

Robin's Laws of Good Game Mastering

It's head and shoulders over anything else related to the topic I've ever read in my life. Laws is a master. He also has a blog here.

Miles after that, subscription (for free) to Roleplaying Tips is recommended.

In particular: The session checklist part 1 and part 2

Also, read non-fiction books. History, economy and sociology are the most helpful topics that come to mind.
