Clear and well-written without being patronizing. This is a useful guide for anyone, and especially for young women using social media who don't know who to ask for advice. Some of your friends who are "good at computers" don't know always know as much as you think they do, or as much as they think they do.

*I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for review.

I wanted to like this more, as the writing itself was engaging and informative, but as a guide it skipped around too much and there was disappointingly little actual 'how to'. I learned of whole worlds of malice out in cyberspace I had no idea were possible, but I'm still pretty fuzzy on what I need to do to combat the baddies. I'd apologize for needing more hand holding, but that's the reason I bought the book.

Great erotica book compiled by Violet Blue. Cyberpunk really needs more erotica.

Finally, a down-to-Earth guide that acknowledged how much harder it is for women on the Internet! It was easy to read (fairly quick too, if you are trying to absorb it all before implementing) and, unlike so many guides, aimed at the non-technical.

Two major criticisms: (1) to implement ALL of the tips, you need $$$ and some of the prevention tips are beyond my means; and (2) there are certain sections where the instructions are too sparse to implement - however, Blue is detailed enough with the concept and vocabulary so that you have the means to seek out more instruction. I would have rather had a longer, more detailed book, but I understand the feasibility of that was lacking, especially if you wanted to keep it non-technical.

All in all, after reading, I feel I have some tools to rebuild my digital life and protect myself for my next foray into that world. The book felt geared to me, was not over my head (like some of the technical books my bookstore pushed on me) and gave me some control quickly. I can always go more in-depth later.
