From Publishers Weekly:

Ten years after the appearance of The Plug-In Drug, Winn carries on her crusade to alert America to the detrimental effects that watching hours of televisionany program, "good" or "bad"has on a child's social and intellectual development. An organizer of "TV Turn-Off" weeks and months for families, classes and schools, Winn here outlines how readers can create their own TV boycotts and offers advice on how to get children to agree to give up TV and what to do with the resulting free time. Besides bringing kids to books and giving couch potatoes an opportunity to exercise, such events can, she maintains, contribute to greater family interaction and challenge children's resourcefulness at play. Although Winn's evangelical zeal and rigidly censorious view of TV may turn off readers, this is a useful guide for worried parents and teachers.

From Library Journal:

No TV for a week might cause painful withdrawal symptoms, but it can also create a positive understanding of how seductive this medium is. Winn, author of The Plug-In Drug, has outlined how to go about planning a family, school, or community TV turn-off to help children and others understand the role TV plays in their lives. As she explains, it is not so much the quality of the TV programs children watch, it is what they don't do insteadcreative play, reading, exercise, homework, building communication skills, and helping around the house. This helpful handbook has step-by-step instructions on how to go "cold turkey." A national TV turn-off will be launched by Penguin/Viking in November with author appearances in major cities. A worthwhile idea and book. Annette V. Janes, Hamilton P.L., Mass.
