Overview

The average American uses more than ten hours per week playing computer games. It might be coming together with their friends for an evening of Call of Duty, or sweaty session of aerobics on Wii Sports or a little time playing Angry Birds on the bus while going to work, computer games are now a huge part of our lives. And, truly, people have constantly played games. It’s one of the things that make us human.

You might see games as just a means of entertainment or a means to relax. However, as these chapters will reveal to us, there’s really a lot more to games than just entertainment. Adding a spirit of gaming to part of your life can improve your cognitive skills, enable you to defeat biases and drive you towards your goal. In a nutshell, they can enable you to become superbetter.
