Reviews

'An anecdotal survey that is enriching and touching, while issuing a challenge to the bad science surrounding the subject.' -- New Statesman
'Etchells writes eloquently ... A heartfelt defence of a demonised pastime' * The Times *
'Once in an age, a piece of culture comes along that feels like it was specifically created for you, the beats and words and ideas are there because it is your life the creator is describing. Lost In A Good Game is exactly that. It will touch your heart and mind. And even if Bowser, Chun-li or Q-Bert weren't crucial parts of your youth, this is a flawless victory for everyone' -- Adam Rutherford
'Pete Etchells' debut book Lost in a Good Game takes the reader on a much needed, highly informative, but still intriguingly personal journey through the much maligned yet increasingly beloved and influential world of video games' -- Dean Burnett, neuroscientist and author of The Happy Brain
