9780470936375_cover.indd Read an article a little while back talking about a new book coming out called, Jacked: The Outlaw Story of Grand Theft Auto.  It will be out next week, March 14, 2012.  Think this might be a good read.  If you know me, you know I am a huge GTA fan.  Not sure if I will be buying this book any time soon because I am still picking my way thought the Game of Thrones books.  But will but it on my wish list.  From the product description on Amazon.

Grand Theft Auto is one of the biggest and most controversial videogame franchises of all time. Since its first release in 1997, GTA has pioneered the use of everything from 3D graphics to the voices of top Hollywood actors and repeatedly transformed the world of gaming. Despite its incredible innovations in the $75 billion game industry, it has also been a lightning rod of debate, spawning accusations of ethnic and sexual discrimination, glamorizing violence, and inciting real-life crimes. Jacked tells the turbulent and mostly unknown story of GTA‘s wildly ambitious creators, Rockstar Games, the invention and evolution of the franchise, and the cultural and political backlash it has provoked.”
