This book was written from the heart by Dr. Doan M.D., who has an extensive experience with video gaming, stemming from his childhood up until his late 30's early 40's. He gives you an individualized account, tying his seemingly less-than stellar childhood experience with family, peers, society and coupling this with his early introduction to video games that led to his hardcore addiction later on life. While expressing his emotional experience he also backs up his claims with scientific evidence. He mentions the "skinner experiment" many times which was a study conducted on rats that has become a lore in the psychiatric/neurological field. This cyclic addiction for dopamine/pleasure in the brain is what manufactures a life long dependency for things that stimulate the human senses.
I enjoyed this read, it was quick and he managed to get the information out without the hassle of making it overtly wordy. He truly wants to help people. I was not a big fan of the religious overtones for his solution's section, but hey that was his methodology of overcoming the addiction. but even with that this is a unique book because we have here a long time hardcore gamer that has spilled his guts for the world to hear how damaging video games can truly be on one's psyche and well-being.
The author relates his own experiences with gaming and it would be a great read for anyone that may be at risk of a gaming addiction or someone who might already have one. He goes in depth to describe the games, terms that just about any hardcore gamer knows and the draw of why these can become a problem for some.
This is by far the best book I have read about the subject so far. Most likely since Doan is a doctor, but also have first hand experience with 20 000 hours of gameplay during 9 years (on average 6 hours/day for 9 years....). This guy knows his stuff which other doctors truly don't.
He mentions Philip Zimbardo, but I believe he truly does not share his opinion in many aspects. I believe this is true and that Zimbardo oversimplifies things or try to find answers in the wrong directions. Games are a new subject in the world of psychology and right now it is not psychologists who are the experts, but rather skilled professionals in general who has got first hand experience.
Another honorable mention would be Tom Bissel's Extra Lives: Why Video Games Matter - even if this book is not truly about addiction, but really one man's journey through the world of video games and how they, in a way, saved his life.
It will take a long time before this new type of addiction will be acknowledged as truth - just like the case of alcoholism and gamble addiction. How come psychologists work so slowly?!
Anyway... the book is also easy to read, but above all it's got many insightful points.
I highly recommend it
