I would have to aggree with Mark. This is another disappointing book that I paid for. It's very general and didn't go into the topics the way I had expected. It's a decent read, just be warned that you may not be impressed.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I was disappointed when I got this book. I expected much more. I have read several books on Internet safety, etc. and find 'Life and Death on the Internet' by Keith A. Schroeder the best.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
