I raised my sons with the invaluable knowledge of this book. I am very fortunate to have read it when I did. 15 years later, my sons are balanced and sensitive despite video games, airsoft, weapon fascination, military parent. College and High Schoolers now, happy and productive.

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.
