Sid Meier probably doesn’t need any introduction around these parts, but just in case: he’s the mind behind a whole bunch of classic PC games ranging Sid Meier’s Civilization, Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri, Sid Meier’s Railway Tycoon and Sid Meier’s Pirates! to name a few. He co-founded legendary studio MicroProse, and also founded Firaxis, which continues to make Civilization and XCOM games.

He has quite the legacy, so it’s no surprise that he’s got a book in him: Sid Meier’s Memoir! publishes this September through WW Norton. Based on the book’s description it won’t be a straight biography or anything: Meier will reflect on his career, but he’ll also offer “his perspective on the history of the industry, the psychology of gamers, and fascinating insights into the creative process, including his rules of good game design.”
