Closer Together, Further Apart: The Effect of Technology and the Internet on Parenting, Work, and Relationships


“[Weiss and Schneider] play to their strengths in a brief work that is by turns laudatory and cautionary regarding the Internet and related technologies. … Younger readers may rejoice in this validation of their lives….”

“No conversation seems more controversial than the impact of the digital revolution on human well being and destiny. This book places this conversation in the history of communication, thus giving it a context that reduces anxiety about change. While it posits that all revolutions are embraced and rejected and have positive and negative benefits, it shows that those who embrace the new will thrive while those who do not atrophy. This is the human journey. I recommend Closer Together, Further Apart as essential reading for everyone, both to inform and enlighten, to warn and to reassure.”

-Harville Hendrix, Ph. D. Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples and co-author with Helen Lakelly Hunt of Making Marriage Simple: Ten Truths for Changing the Relationship You Have into the One You Want

In less than a single generation digital technology has dramatically and permanently altered the ways in which humans connect and communicate with each other. Conversations and information transfers that once either weren’t possible or took days to complete now occur in an instant. Technological advances are profoundly affecting humankind forcing us to change on multiple levels.

Today’s generation gap is totally different from previous generation gaps because of digital technology. While digital immigrants baby boomers may be looking to confirm their theory that indeed this younger generation is going “to hell in a handbasket” just like their parents claimed that “sex, drugs, and rock & roll” was ruining them, readers of both generations will make a surprising discovery. Join the authors on an enlightening exploration of how digital technology and the Internet have changed the way we communicate, relate, work, parent, and mate.
