9781137278319: iDisorder: Understanding Our Obsession with Technology and Overcoming Its Hold on Us

iDisorder: changes to your brain's ability to process information and your ability to relate to the world due to your daily use of media and technology resulting in signs and symptoms of psychological disorders - such as stress, sleeplessness, and a compulsive need to check in with all of your technology. Based on decades of research and expertise in the "psychology of technology," Dr. Larry Rosen offers clear, down-to-earth explanations for why many of us are suffering from an "iDisorder." Rosen offers solid, proven strategies to help us overcome the iDisorder we all feel in our lives while still making use of all that technology offers. Our world is not going to change, and technology will continue to penetrate society even deeper leaving us little chance to react to the seemingly daily additions to our lives. Rosen teaches us how to stay human in an increasingly technological world.

Review:

“Thoughtful, clearly written and full of ideas and data you'll want to throw into dinner-party conversation.” ―The New York Times

“Rosen's ideas are thought-provoking, and the changes he suggests are realistic to implement. Very readable.” ―Library Journal Xpress

“In iDisorder, Dr. Larry Rosen takes readers on a thought-provoking tour of how new technology is dramatically changing our lives and redefining what we consider normal versus disordered behavior.” ―Gary Small, M.D., director of UCLA Center on Aging and bestselling author of The Memory Bible

“Rosen's book, iDisorder, tells us how not to let too much of a good thing become a bad thing. Digital technologies are machines that can enhance or harm our minds. Rosen tells us how to keep our minds safe and sane.” ―James Paul Gee, Mary Lou Fulton Presidential professor of Literacy Studies, Arizona State University

“Well-researched insights into the impact of technology on our psychological well-being and mental health. Rosen continues to serve as a pioneer in the field with this groundbreaking book that provides guidance and expertise on the deeper roots of psychological problems related to technology use.” ―Dr. Kimberly Young, author of Caught in the Net and Internet Addiction: A Handbook and Guide for Evaluation and Treatment

“In iDisorder, Dr. Rosen provides comprehensive coverage of many mental health issues facing our overuse of technology. This complex and challenging book provides clear and concise guidance when dealing with these issues.” ―Martin A. Saeman, managing editor, The National Psychologist

iDisorder is a futurist psychologist's fascinating glimpse into the 21st century. In this book, Rosen shows you and your loved ones how to regain control over your technology-centric lives.” ―Pat DeLeon, former president American Psychological Association
