Things We Think About Games

This book is super fun -- a collection of thoughts by a number of people about how to make games better. Sometimes from the point of view of the designer, sometimes from the player. Some of my favorite tips include:
#001: The player of any game has, at most, two hands.
#024: Keep your eye on the discard pile. Shuffle it just before it seems necessary to do so. 
#047: Design good cards. 
#055: When it doubt, have two guys come through the door with guns. 
#069: Roleplayers always wind up running the games they really want to play. 
#101: Know why you play games.
Anyway, it's totally fun, and a quick read.
