"I just finished the MOJO Guide and had to read it a second time because it was that well done. 

Montgomery provides the reader with a great source for improving the skills required for converged multimedia interactive story telling. 

I was searching for this book to help my students understand how to use the tools he so well analyzes.  Nice Job!!!!"
