Huizinga's Characteristics of Play

From Wikipedia, quoting from Huizinga's Homo Ludens: The Play Element of Culture (1938)

I'm trying to decide whether to read this book.

From wikipedia's synopsis it looks like Huizinga's core idea here is that culture itself plays; the dynamics of culture are play; culture is a kind of aliveness at play.
