2. SUMMARY & TEXT TO SELF: What are some of the authors concerns with video game playing? What is one argument he makes that you see as logical? Is there anything he says about video games that you disagree with?
3. TEXT TO SELF: Write a bit about your play history! Answer as many of the questions he poses as you can When have you felt free to do and be what you choose? Is that a part of your life now? If not, why not? What do you feel stands in the way of your achieving some times of personal freedom? Are you now able to feel that what engages you most fully is almost effortless? If not, can you recall when you were able to experience such times? Describe. Imagine settings that allow that sort of engagement. Search your memory for those times in your life when you have been at your very best. What have been the impediments to play in your life? How and why did some kinds of play disappear from your repertoire? (And any other questions he poses)
