2021 Second Outreach book: "The Toxic Dangers of Video Games". Now available for purchase.

It is with greater excitement, that we announce the availability of: "The Toxic Dangers of Video Games: Things you need to know about video games and the internet."

 In the past 20 years, entertaining video games and the once helpful, informative internet have been infiltrated. Today, video games are no longer created for "fun" entertainment. Many games are now designed to be addictive, to make as much money for gaming companies as possible.
The World Health Organization now recognizes gaming disorder as an addictive behavior. This diagnosis acknowledges that there is a public health and public safety crisis. Addictions manifest in a myriad of forms, but the most insidious are the socially acceptable ones. In the United States, gaming disorder is a socially accepted addiction.
With no standards, regulations, or limits, the World Wide Web is now akin to the Wild Wild West. Enter at your own risk. The Internet is now polluted with fake news, false identities, scammers, and spammers.
The effects of a gaming disorder and constant Internet and technology use are serious and can devastate lives, relationships, families, and communities. "The Toxic Dangers of Video Games" brings into the light the darkness of video gaming and technology use, which has been growing unnoticed. This book uncovers the massive entertainment industry’s greed-fueled assault on our pocketbooks, our children, our cultures, and our values, world wide. "The Toxic Dangers of Video Games" is a wake-up call of what our society is up against with recommendations of things we can do to counteract this technology onslaught.
After reading this book, hopefully, you will be challenged to evaluate your own technology use and that of your children and family. We do NOT have to become robots, as the technology industry would have it, so they can keep putting more money into their own pockets. We hope you are inspired to share this book to inform others of "The Toxic Dangers of Video Games".
This book is written by Liz Woolley who is accredited in the Information Technology field since 1986 - before the internet and personal computers, Liz, with John's encouragement, uses her insight and God-given strength to write a clear warning to all parents, children, community support members, video gamers, and technology users.
