    Excellent tool for any parent or teacher

    If your kids are as addicted to the Internet as mine, this book is a must have. It clearly explains how to check your computer for smut or other 'questionable activity,' and it does so without making you feel like you're reading a technical manual. This one needs to be put into out school libraries, pronto.

    Finally, someone who speaks our language

    I have read my share of Internet books, and I have to say that most of them read like they were written by a computer, using lingo I don't understand and details I don't care about. Mr. McBain combines perfectly the concepts of raw data and comprehensiveness. He literally lays open the inner workings of the Internet pornography rings and lets you decide for yourself how to use the information. If I hadn't come across this book, I'd still be in the dark and unable to tell what my kids were doing while I was at work. Thanks to the author for writing something that even I could understand. I bought your other book, 'The Vast,' out of curiosity, and it was very enjoyable, so I owe you for two beneficial books.
