Larry Rosen draws upon his and other scholars’ research in this discussion of how the overuse of technology can produce or exacerbate psychological problems. A wide range of psychiatric and personality disorders are reviewed—with straightforward strategies offered on how to prevent technology from inducing such “iDisorders.” Stephen Hoye provides an intellectual elocution, with a hint of the pompous professor, capturing the complexity of the science and keeping the listener engaged. However, more personality in the supporting anecdotes would break up the preponderance of academic exposition. The production is supplemented by a PDF file of self-assessment tools and charts. (But the reader who suspects an iDisorder might fare better with the low-tech print edition). K.C.R. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2012]
