We are facing a not-so-brave new world; a world in which young men are getting left behind. PHILIP ZIMBARDO and NIKITA COULOMBE argue that an addiction to video games and online porn have created a generation of shy, socially awkward, emotionally removed, and risk-averse young men who are unable (and unwilling) to navigate the complexities and risks inherent to real-life relationships, school, and employment. Taking a critical look at a problem that is tearing at families and societies everywhere, Man, Interrupted suggests that our young men are suffering from a new form of "arousal addiction" and introduces a bold new plan for getting them back on track.
Filled with anecdotes, fascinating research, perceptive analysis, and concrete suggestions for change, Man, Interrupted is a book for our time. It is a book that informs, challenges, and ultimately inspires.
"Man, Interrupted is the most important book I've read in years, given that it is thoroughly researched, well organized, beautifully written, and outlines a problem that affects at least half the population of the country, if not everyone. Even more, it identifies the causes and suggests practical solutions. This book should be read by legislators, judges, politicians, parents, spouses, and, well, men...all of them." -MICHAEL SHERMER, publisher of Skeptic magazine, columnist at Scientific American, author of The Moral Arc
"A compassionate look at the phenomenon of young men disappearing into the virtual worlds of videogaming and porn-to the detriment of everyone." -GARY WILSON, author of Your Brain on Porn
"Dr. Zimbardo bravely and wisely calls attention to the spreading crisis afflicting many of America's young men." -ROY BAUMEISTER, author of Is There Anything Good About Men? and Willpower
