When Olivia Bruner saw video games overtaking her young sons' lives, she decided to learn the facts behind addiction. What she found was shocking: that most games are designed to be highly addictive-triggering physiological reactions in the brain similar to those associated with substance abuse-and that one out of five kids becomes addicted to computer and video games. And while many parents screen the content of games to protect their children from violent and sexual themes, few understand the forces causing their children to become hooked on the "digital drug." This book arms parents with the facts they need and concrete steps to protect our children from this very real epidemic. A must-read for all parents.

PLAYSTATION NATION exposes the very real threat of video games to our children: their capacity to turn vibrant, well-balanced kids into emotionally and socially impaired individuals unable to function as productive members of society. Spurred on by the patterns of addiction they saw developing in their own son, Kurt and Olivia Bruner share their message with concerned parents grappling with the videogame dilemma and arm them with hard facts about addiction.& ;Using the personal stories of former video game addicts to help parents identify the w
