Well presented full of facts and interesting quotes to start chapters. Is really an alarm to any reader especially men, that something is not quite right, and therefore needs to be addressed. Also highlights the fact that there are many influencers involved in the demise of the Male species.

Interesting collection of studies, but feels biased.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 August 2015
I really like Zimbardo's work, especially the things he did around the Heroes project. In this book, there are a number of studies and articles mentioned to back his argument about the problems young men face nowadays. However, the book is biased and you can clearly feel the judgmental tone in many occasions. I think the book is trying to convince the readers about the severity of the problems rather than showing the good and the bad things young men currently encounter in the current age.

Very interesting!Reviewed in Germany on 15 July 2020
another compelling and highly interesting read by Zimbardo. This book talks about pornography and gaming addiction, falsely diagnosed ADHD, obesity in males and why women are in fact more privileged than males and why males are falling behind in virtually every area of life behind women. Very interesting and a true eye opener!
An excellent book that raises extremely important questions about internet usage in the home.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 September 2015
I am half way through this at present and have to say that I find the book extremely well written, easy to read and above all filled with credible references. I think the value of the book is in bringing together a wide range of research findings and observations to enable a coherent discussion. The author gets the reader really thinking about what engaging in what have come to be every day online virtual challenges, pleasures and gratifications can do in terms of wiring the developing brain. The deficits in social, academic and employment prospects that come from excessive use are explained against a background of statistical findings and as such the book is to my mind essential reading for all parents as well as young males themselves, let alone young women who will have to deal with the defective thinking and behaviour that online porn and gaming addictions lead to.
