Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.
The authors have done an excellent job at reducing complex psychological phenomena to an easily understandable level.
Also, they have highlighted most of the major elements that comprise the online experience.
I do not feel that this book would be of tremendous value to the experienced online user for it fails to address some of the "real" issues that confront us all, i.e., confusion, guilt, anxiety, etc.

The authors did not differentiate between that which constitutes 'personality' and that which would constitute 'character', and lay their emphasis on the observation of one's personality as a yardstick of cyber discernment.
It would be unwise to confer upon another a 'label' based upon certain behaviors.
Those that have online experience probably have learned that the utterances of the personality often have little, if no meaning at all.
Without providing in-depth 'tools' of differentiation for the reader to utilize when gauging another, those that are looking for gleaning greater understanding on how to make wiser cyber choices will be disappointed.
