Overall, Chris Hansen completed an exceptional work of literature for entertainment and enlightenment. It gives formal advice and power to parents. Whether someone has children, is planning, or is interested in a respectable read about online predators, then this book will suffice. If anything else, the author has given parents hope. It is a hope that future generations will continue to grow and educate one another so that we can live in a society where people are more accepting, empathetic, sympathetic, and willing to help those around us. Chris Hansen has showed us, without loads of empirical data, or scientific research, that the problems around us are very real, and in our homes, without anyone stepping a foot inside. The beginning starts in our minds and our homes. Communication is the key that will open the door.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

More than just a rundown of the TO CATCH A PREDATOR Dateline NBC series (although it does do that), this book also contains heartbreaking stories of children who have been exploited -- and in some cases murdered -- by predators they met on the Internet. <BR/><BR/>Chris Hansen does a great job of illustrating the fact that the computer and the Internet, as a whole, are useful tools that even younger children can take advantage of. But his tips and hints for protecting your children from online predators are something that EVERY parent needs to read -- and then share with their kids. <BR/><BR/>While I tried to avoid scaring my two children (ages 10 and 6), I have sat them down and discussed the dangers that can be found on the Internet. Just as predators in real life don't always look like what they are, I think my kids now understand that people they could meet online aren't necessarily who they claim to be, either. <BR/><BR/>I highly recommend all parents, especially those of teens and pre-teens, who have a computer pick up a copy of TO CATCH A PREDATOR. You'll be amazed, frightened, and instilled with a sense of urgency when it comes to the protection of your kids.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Much like the popular Dateline series, sheds a light on the mostly dark world of sexual predators on the internet. Don't expect a rehash of the titillating television drama here--instead, Hansen intersperses stories from the show with advice and true stories of victims and their families. Not great, but good.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

As Chris Hansen has shown time and time again on To Catch A Predator, child predators will go to any length to meet up with a kid. If you love the show, then you will read every page of the book. I recommend this book to any parent with children or anyone that has interests in cybercrimes or the stories on TCAP.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
