If you're interested in the space, this is an interesting read. If you work in the space, you should own this book.
Academic research and its requisite statistics can appear daunting, but Olsen and Kutner guide the uninitiated through this maze.
If you're expecting a clear-cut condemnation of video games, you won't find it here. Nor will you find an unfettered endorsement. (So it's likely that neither critics nor supporters will be satisfied with this book.) What you will find: interesting and easily readable background information, some surprises, acknowledgment of the difficulties in drawing any blanket conclusions -- and of the remaining knowledge gaps, and well-reasoned suggestions for what to worry about (and what not to).
Highly recommended. My complete review of their book can be found on the Technology Liberation Front blog.
