Editorial Reviews

Jim Blasingame
Revenge of the Computer Widow mixes research analysis with humor (sometimes sardonic) and techno-poignancy to create what I believe will become a watershed work. Nattalia Lea has an amazing capacity to inform you while you think you are just being entertained. Enjoy.

What People are Saying About This

G.D. Freeman
This is one of those rare finds. A book so riveting I actually stayed away from the computer, while I read it from cover to cover. Not only did I have the pleasure of finding out amongst my peers I am not alone.I even experienced something referred to as sunshine.

Our Web site gets over 20 million hits per month. We didn't think we could learn anything useful from Revenge of the Computer Widow. We were wrong. Buy this book. (Matthew Gray & Angelina, Honolulu)
Kimberly S. Young
The book is informative and entertaining. The book provides both illustrative case examples and anecdotal statistics that capture in a light-hearted tone how the Computer Age impacts human behavior.

Greg Abrams
Revenge of the Computer Widow is an enlightening look into the culture emerging from the technology revolution.a culture that is evolving as quickly as the technology that drives it. As someone who has personally crossed 'the digital divide' career-wise, I wish this book had been available during my own transition. It is filled with fascinating stories of the landmark developments in computing history, punctuated with comments and observations from the survey respondents. What emerges from the survey results is sometimes surprising, insightful, occasionally disturbing, often funny and always entertaining.Whether you are novice or power-user, you will find Revenge of the Computer Widow a delightful read.not to mention, it is a great alternative to taking your laptop to bed.
