This is a valuable book that tears apart the handful of studies that we base our "violent movies and games make killers" assumptions on and debates them with a number of other studies that would prove otherwise. Did you know that the Smurfs and Strawberry Shortcake generation had a higher rate of adolescent violence than my Transformers and He-Man generation? Gerard Jones makes a great point about the need for violent play in our psychological development and the dangers of making our children self-conscious about play.
