Man Disconnected: How technology has sabotaged what it means to be male Kindle Edition
'Zimbardo has put his finger on a great challenge of the modern era' - The Sunday Times
Masculinity is in meltdown. Young men are failing as never before — academically, socially and sexually. But why? And what needs to be done?
Internationally-acclaimed psychologist Philip Zimbardo, and research partner Nikita Coulombe, show how symptoms include excessive gaming and porn use, apathy and drug abuse. They argue that digital technologies create alternative worlds that many boys find less demanding and more rewarding than real life, yet which are ultimately harmful.
There is hope. Man Disconnected reveals where the solutions are to be found, and what action we can take. Controversial, provocative and insightful, this book is an alarm call ignored at our peril.

On the negative side I would identify several shortcomings. Firstly the authors fail to distinguish between positive correlation and causation. Just because people exhibiting a particular behaviour have a incidence of some characteristic, it doesn't necessarily mean that the behaviour is causing the characteristic. Secondly the book is a bit rambling and repetitive. Thirdly I think that insufficient attention is paid to the specifically religious. The broadly Christian worldview that prevailed in much of the West until comparatively recently gave men a framework and virtual role models (including that of Jesus himself) which was helpful. Now I suspect that for many people "life is [insert expletive of choice] and then you die" so why not take the path of least resistance?
