Luciano L'Abate, a world-renowned expert on family therapy, has produced a comprehensive review of the literature on play, ranging from an examination of play across dozens of cultures to an analysis of the implications of technology on leisure time. The inclusion of the topic of adult play solidifies its must-read status for scholars interested in understanding diverse expressions and functions of play.
