Man Disconnected

How technology has sabotaged what it means to be male


Formats & editions


Internationally acclaimed psychologist Philip Zimbardo reveals how modern manhood has hit crisis point and argues that urgent steps need to be taken now for the good of society.

'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.
