3.0 out of 5 stars very light weight 5 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is far too short and cursory. It seems to be little more than a marketing tool for the netaddiction business. It's a shame as Kimberley Young is so switched on about this topic. What points it makes are relatively good points, though it comes from a disease model which I don't subscribe to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Poor formatting, but good content 22 Jan 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The format of this publication leaves much to be desired, but the recommendations for addressing your, or someone else's, online gaming addiction are very helpful. I read this. I read it to my son. Then I sent a copy to his kindle. I think it's worth the double purchase.
1.0 out of 5 stars Very bad text formation! 20 Jan 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I give one star just to get attention to the bad text formation that can even be seen in the preview.
This makes it a little difficult to concetrate on the reading with non sense line breaking and titles not highlighted.
