Put Your Damn Phone Down


Put Your Damn Phone Down


Glenn Manton

At a party? You’re on your phone. Lying in bed? You’re on your phone. Out for dinner? You’re on your phone. In class, on the train, at a concert, in the gym: phone, phone, phone, phone.

And what’s wrong with that? Everyone else is doing it. But do you ever get the feeling that while you’re glued to your screen you’re missing out on … life?

In Put Your Damn Phone Down, former AFL legend Glenn Manton shares insights and wisdom from his years on and off the field. There’s no judgement. No rules. Just true stories and questions to get you thinking …

So if you want to live life instead of just viewing it on Instagram; if you want to have adventures instead of watching them on YouTube; if you want to fulfil your dreams instead of standing by while others fulfil theirs … this is the book for you.

Praise for Glenn Manton

‘Glenn Manton was a champion on the football field — but a far greater man on our side of the sticks.’ Adam Spencer

‘I first met Glenn in 1995. He was different — a tattooed thinker who could talk on a deep level. His pioneering work with teenagers in the years since is captured in this great new book.’ Jo Silvagni

‘Glenn has seen it all and sharing his story is what this book is all about.’ Jarryd Roughead
