A field guide to the visionaries―and the fans―who are reinventing the art of storytelling.Not long ago we were spectators, passive consumers of mass media. Now, on YouTube and blogs and Facebook and Twitter, we are media. And while we watch more television than ever before, how we watch it is changing in ways we have barely slowed down to register. No longer content in our traditional role as couch potatoes, we approach television shows, movies, even advertising as invitations to participate―as experiences to immerse ourselves in at will. Wired contributing editor Frank Rose introduces us to the people who are reshaping media for a two-way world―people like Will Wright (The Sims), James Cameron (Avatar), Damon Lindelof (Lost), and dozens of others whose ideas are changing how we play, how we chill, and even how we think. The Art of Immersion is an eye-opening look at the shifting shape of entertainment today.

From Homer to Halo 3, from Scorsese to The Sims, the craft of story-telling has transformed utterly. Or has it? Frank Rose is one of the world's most insightful technology writers, and in this wonderful and important book he narrates a narrative about the new narrators who are gaming all the rules we learned way back in English 101. (Randall Rothenberg, Chief Digital Officer, Time Inc.)
We can spy the future in Frank Rose's brilliant tour of the pyrotechnic collision between movies and games. This insightful, yet well researched, book convinced me that immersive experiences are rapidly becoming the main event in media, and has re-framed my ideas about both movies and games. Future-spotting doesn't get much better than this. (Kevin Kelly, author of What Technology Wants)
