Review of Disconnected

Disconnected is written by Kennedy Barrows and published by Dorrance.

This book is not one you can just sit down and read in one sitting.  I found it to be informative yet overwhelming at times.  I would say it took me about a month to read through.

You will find that the chapters are short.  However, this does not mean they are easy to understand.  The author had divided the book into different sections and under each section has written what I would call articles about the subject presented.  There are personal stories included as well as pertinent examples to reiterate the authors point.

A couple of the sections are Boundaries and Communication.  Under the section Boundaries there are chapters titled The Broken Record Routine and Threats.  Under the Communication section you will find chapters titled Words Can Hurt and I First Look in the Mirror.

I found this book hard to understand.  It read like a bunch of articles thrown together.  The articles were not easy to comprehend either.  I think this book would be a good read for a student studying to be a counselor or someone who is studying human behavior.

I gave this book 4/5 stars.  I thought it was boring and hard to understand.  I was hoping for a book about ways to improve our lives in this computer run world but I was greatly disappointed. 

I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading.  I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
