- Best-selling author of Reality is Broken launches her new book, SuperBetter, in Canada.
TORONTO, Aug. 17, 2015 /CNW/ - In 2009, creative iconoclast Jane McGonigal fell and suffered a severe concussion. For months she could barely function, until she started playing a game she'd created called SuperBetter. It worked, and the game became an online sensation.
Today, over 5 million people have viewed her TedTalk on learning resilience through gameplay: http://bit.ly/1yfWFzQ
