About the Book
As your son or daughter would no doubt put it, Rusel DeMaria 'gets it.' He combines an insider's understanding of how the games industry works, a fan's vantage point on what's exciting about this emerging medium, a concerned citizen's perspective on the social and educational impacts of games culture, and a visionary's take on where this might all be leading. It's a potent combination - all the more so because he pulls it off with common sense and accessible, even engaging prose. This is a book parents and educators should read before they make any final judgments about the place of games in the lives of young Americans, and young people should read Reset if they are looking for arguments about why playing games doesn't rot the brain.''
