If you’re curious what exactly the book is about, it’s a curated selection of Iwata’s “Iwata Asks” interviews that he conducted over the years working as Nintendo’s president. The entirety of these interviews are available on Nintendo’s website, but Ask Iwata looks to single out specific entries that provide a sense of motivation or are uplifting. There will also be a couple of exclusive interviews with Shigeru Miyamoto and Shigesato Itoi to look forward to.
