Praise for Bodied
“When I read Bodied, I feel transported to all the tournaments I have ever been to. If you have ever been to a fighting game tournament, experienced online fighting games, or are inherently curious about esports, this is the novel for you. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been able to travel the globe playing fighting games. And in an instant, Eli has sent me back to all those memories. This book reminds me of everything and everyone I love about the Fighting Game Community. I hope you like it as much as I do.”
