Overview

Reset: Changing the Way We Look at Video Games

Video games can actually be good for you-and Rusel DeMaria (whose books on video games have sold 2 million copies) proves it. In this insider's analysis of the increasingly violent and uncreative video gaming industry, he offers a roadmap for parents, educators, gamers, and industry insiders to leverage the inherent potential of games to promote positive personal and social change.
