From addiction expert Dr. Nicholas Kardaras, a startling argument that technology is profoundly affecting the brains of our children- and not for the better.

“Glow Kids is a paradigm-shifting, mind-bending account of excess and tragedy that should serve as a clarion call to rethink our ever-evolving relationship with technology.” -Dr. Howard Shaffer, Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School

“Glow Kids amply and connivingly documents the potential connections between screen time and a number of mental health conditions including depression, ADHD, aggression, and even psychosis. Every parent and teacher and those who work with youth should read this book.” – New York Journal of Books

“Details how compulsive technology usage and reliance on screens can neurologically damage the developing brain of a child the same way that drug addiction can.” -Vice
