The Big Disconnect, while published only 4 years ago, is already a bit out of date. Girls don't use Facebook much anymore, where women over 35 do. The book is repetitive too and could be half the length. I am 2/3 through it without feeling that it has provided me with actionable strategies. There are likely more succinct resources online to understand the issue and what to do to change tech in the family.

The Big Disconnect is an up to date account of the impacts that technology can have on families.
