“What is the main difference between books “The Invisible Game” and
“A Newborn Business?”
Both books are related to esports and professional gaming, but they are dealing with the topic from different perspectives.
The Invisible Game is focusing on mental readiness, written specifically for professional gamers. The Invisible Game is about preparing yourself for tournaments, competitions and LAN events. It connects the dots between practicing skills and psychological fitness.
A Newborn Business is about the business side of esports and professional gaming, including an in-depth introduction into the gaming business. It is an educative book for higher education and for those who intend to work in the esports or game casting industry.
Why you utilize questions in A Newborn Business as a basic structure of the book?
Real life questions establish a strong connection between the author and the reader. I tried to be honest with the reader as much as I can. Esports is a new phenomenon for sure, 15 years ago there was no Twitch, no League of Legends and the highest price pool was around $100,000.
Today esports is a million dollar business and grows rapidly. There is no expert who could say with 100% certainty what will esports look like in 5 years, but we need an industry insight and that is what A Newborn Business is offering to the readers.
“After reading The Invisible Game, will I be a mental superman gamer?”
No, but it introduces the fields where you could improve yourself and gives ideas on how to do that
“I’m a streamer does any of these books offer to me?”
Streaming is an essential part of the gaming eco-system. From business point of view it received a lot of attention through Ninja in 2018.
In book A Newborn Business I utilized several examples that are connecting directly to streamers. In terms of income and career opportunities being a streamer is a slightly better option today than being just an esports player.
“If you would pick only one interesting fact from A Newborn Business, what would it be?”
Maybe this one:
In gambling “only 0.1% of the players win in long term”.
No betting sites would ever use this for marketing. Esports betting a serious business in the near future and expect big attention from investors.
