The premise here is that we are facing a not-so-brave new world; a world in which young men are getting left behind. Philip Zimbardo and Nikita Coulombe say 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 introduce a bold new plan for getting them back on track.
The concluding chapters offer a set of solutions that can be affected by different segments of society including schools, parents, and young men themselves.
Filled with telling anecdotes, results of 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.

What an eye opener
Man, interrupted takes the reader Through a tour of the unspoken lives of the modern day male. A humbling read seeing myself in many of the topics on the degradation of boys morale to live life.
The main point I took was that there are many sides of a story, it is about listening and really seeing that men get hurt too. Then they hurt themselves and others. The cycle perpetuates, leaving a fragmented society

Having been familiar with Philip Zimbardo from his TED talk The Demise of Guys, I was excited for a more in depth story and he delivered! This book will have a huge impact on how I speak to parents and kids on many of the topics related to screen time and character development. A must listen for parents and teachers!
