Following on from his brief TED Talk on the subject some four years ago, world-famous psychologist Philip Zimbardo has just released a book on the same topic: why young men are failing and what can be done about it. This is exactly the topic my debut novel, ****, or, The Anatomy of Melancholy covers, so I was eager to find out more.

I was lucky enough to get some time with Professor Zimbardo when he was in Britain for a few days last week, and have written up my interview today. It makes for fascinating reading, I think, with plenty to discuss and debate. Do check it out at the link below.
