Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘Written in an easily accessible style, this reader contains a wide range of research studies on topics of interest to cyberpsychologists that are not often found together in a single source. The book also contains a wealth of information on previous studies and should be of great use to undergraduate students studying cyberpsychology.’ - John Charlton, University of Bolton, UK

‘As more and more of our lives are spent interacting with, and via, computers, so psychology as a discipline needs to keep pace. The diversity of the rapidly growing field of cyberpsychology is expertly illustrated in this thematic reader. The editors, Power and Kirwan, present recent cutting-edge work on a wide range of topics in a volume that will provide an ideal introduction to this new and exciting field.’ - Adam Joinson, University of the West of England, UK
