Damien’s new book explores the pitfalls of social media addiction

MK life coach outlines a cure for this modern ‘disease’ in his debut novel

Milton Keynes life coach Damien Massias has launched a new book to help people understand and escape the modern ‘disease’ of social media addiction.

His debut novel ‘The Magpie Effect’ provides a complete and comprehensive guide to surviving and enjoying the twisted social media era.

The popular Frenchman examines real life case studies in the book to illustrate how something we think of as being so small and harmless can actually have a colossal butterfly effect on our lives.

But most importantly, Damien wants the book to serve as a wake-up call for people to observe, examine, and re-evaluate their own relationship with social media and re-calibrate their compass towards true fulfilment.

Damien said: “Growing evidence shows that most of us subconsciously search for fulfilment – self confidence, validation, connection, purpose and more – in a place where we’ll ironically never find it: social media.

“When used in a healthy way, social media can enhance our lives in a myriad of positive ways. However, the majority of us unknowingly misuse social media in an unhealthy way, rendering it no more beneficial than a virus.

“And the most dangerous disease is the kind that convinces you you’re not even sick. So while many believe there is no issue here to discuss, I am already concocting a cure, and the first ingredient is awareness.”

The Magpie Effect is available to buy in print, audiobook or ebook formats from Amazon, Google Play and iBooks.
