The book is very insightful, containing information that will be valuable to game designers, academics, gamers and new media enthusiasts. Although you could find some of the its content on Juul's previous articles available on the internet, they are much more complete polished in Haf-Real.
Juul takes what might be called a "grassroots" approach to game studies, not bringing heavy disciplinary baggage to colonize the area, but instead trying to build a formal theory of games from the ground up. He takes his lead primarily from game and culture theorists like Huizinga, Caillois, Crawford and Sutton-Smith rather than from literary theory or media studies. But he really charts his own course and stakes out his own ground in many ways.
He has a strong interest in game rules, which has led some to criticize him for being overly formalistic, but I find this a refreshing and interesting contrast to the more standard "new media" approach to video games.
If this is the first book on video game studies you read, it will look damn impressive. If, however, you are more versed in the field, and especially in the study of games and their like outside the video game perspective, it will look just misdirected, outdated and hopelessly shallow.
While many of the examples are dated (even for when I first read the book years ago), Half-Real is full of useful knowledge for designers, and its theory holds up solid. By connecting the elements of video games with a variety of other disciplines, Jesper Juul may very well change the way that you think about games at a fundamental level.
