Video gaming can be used to improve skills and build friendships and communities. But it is also often an escape from the world, and it can become an addiction. This book in the Deal With It series looks at the realities of gaming and what happens when a love for the game turns into an obsession.

DIANE PETERS has written extensively about health, women's, and parenting issues and teaches magazine writing at Ryerson University. She lives in Toronto with her husband and daughter. She has written several books in the Deal With It series.
