The Hows and Whys of the Games Industry Book
Another book I read recently, it contains extremely useful info on exactly what to expect in looking for a games industry job, the author being extremely qualified and high-profile game developer himself.
Although the advice is roughly five years old, which is a lifetime in the games industry, most of it still applies. Topics such as indie games, Kickstarter would be great to include in an updated release of the book as these two aspects alone have morphed the industry drastically. Still the practical job seeking advice is invaluable as it is so thorough, and I'm fairly certain this book alone could teach you more practically about how to obtain a game developer job than any game course could hope to.
Purchase the book here at Lulu, an independent book publishing company.
