"Hooked on Games" is a fast read (which is a good thing, at least if you ask me), and is packed with lots of insight and wisdom on gaming addiction from the author's own experiences, which is incredibly helpful for those of us like myself who haven't even touched a video game and don't really understand that world or the effects it can have on those who become addicted on games. I found myself often weeping out of sorrow for my friend as I read through each chapter and was coming to a better understanding of what they have struggled with the last couple years (which is awkward because for one, I'm a fairly big muscular dude, and my time spent reading the book was on the train into work....so if you saw a big bald guy balling his eyes out while reading this book on the DC metro, well...that was me...what can I say? I'm a big guy with an even bigger heart!).
The content was also personally convicting. Prior to reading the book I had already decided to take a sabbatical from social media if for no other reason than I was spending far too much time each day scrolling through my Facebook feed and had a tendency to go there whenever I was stressed. Even though social media isn't quite the same thing as video gaming in many aspects, the content of this book gave me a better understanding of my Facebook addiction and some language to describe my issues. I realized that I go to Facebook and social media in whenever I am in need of validation, instead of being confident in my skills and abilities or being able to receive and accept true validation from an actual relationship. I often doubt my cooking abilities, important for me as I hope to someday open my own food truck, and I will often post pictures of various things I cook up and desperately hope that somebody, or make that a LOT of somebodies, like and/or comment on how great it looks on Facebook, instead of actually trusting God's gifting in my life and actually inviting people over more often to enjoy my food.
In summary, regardless of whether or not you are a gaming addict or even know one, I would recommend this book. It is a quick read but contains several extra doses of wisdom that is applicable across multiple areas of modern life. It is definitely a God thing I happened to stumble across this book, and I am incredibly glad I did.
Dr. Doan humbly shares his own personal story with addiction in a touching and poignant way. I personally didn't know about his background until reading this book but was impressed with how vulnerable and transparent he is in his writing. He shares insights and life lessons about technology that are meaningful and easy for the lay person to understand. This isn't a jargon-rich book. It's easily accessible and easy for most people to relate to who have a history of compulsive digital media use.
If you or a loved one is struggling with compulsive technology use I highly recommend this book!
