This is a new landscape and believe it or not, this change is creating problems in our relationships and day-to-day lives because **no one is educating us** on what's acceptable. No one is educating us on how to properly navigate relationships while using these new forms of communication (one very real example Mr. Worthen offered was a husband and wife arguing by text message, and how infuriating those little texting "bubbles" made the wife).
Mr. Worthen delivers with his book. He offers this simple education with a lot of humor, in a light hearted manner and using real-life examples. The best part is that he wrote the book based upon surveys that he did on others. It's well researched.
When reading the points in his book, I discovered that I was not thinking about every point when interacting with others on social media or texting. These points can and have lead to unnecessary quarrels and "Facebreaks" (a great term which was coined by the author).
Electronic communication and social media is actually changing our general behavior in general life, and what we now consider acceptable ways to interact with each other.
This book made me realize that what I say when speaking to someone face-to-face is often different than what I communicate from the comfort of a phone or computer. I don't know how many of us realize that and I'm happy that the author gave me another point of view.
Funnily enough, Mr. Worthen and I are both in a Facebook group. When he promoted his new book, I was *immediately* interested. Within 5 minutes I had ordered it from Amazon (thanks, Prime!) I cracked it open upon arrival and I admit that Mr. Worthen delivered beyond my expectations.
The points made in the book go deeper than social media and actually apply to life. His concepts are basic, yet powerful. He gets us to look at our relationships, interaction and ways to communicate in a whole new light. Again, it's very simple, but true.
For me this is a must-read. I am going to ask my two teenage sons to read this, and I have already recommended it to friends. I think that having this information will not only ensure that we understand our actions on social media, but will help us to better understand how our actions can affect others in day-to-day life.
At the end of his book, Mr. Worthen writes that he is in progress on his next book. I look forward to it and will be ordering it as soon as it's available.
In my counselling practice about 30 % of the cases I dealt with had been harmed in some way due to hidden communication through facebook, and in some cases the person has been so fixated and distracted by their phone they cannot focus on getting what they need to get done in life.
This book is an educational break through. Its funny and it communicates. I will be recommending it to my clients as a light, yet intelligent way to educate them toward a better more "HERE" life.
