Summary
"This book offers sensible advice for ordinary people about how to sustain a safe and satifsfying online life. This takes some know-how, given the risks we face each day. This book offers that knowledge and empowers us to shop, share, and connect with oneanother digitally while protecting ourselves from identity theft, Internet addiction, fake news, and data breaches. This is a chatty, conversational, self-help book written explicitly for a non-techie audience. Readers who might be intimidated by books that are technical, bleak, or frightening, are the intended audience for this book, which translates academic research about media literacy, communications theory and history, the psychology of conspiracy theorists, digital security, and relationship violence, and helps individual citizens apply these ideas to their lives through concrete activities which empower them to navigate the digital revolution with a cool head and a trained eye. This is an approachable, helpful, and thoughtful book, full of soundrecommendations for avoiding the worst pitfalls of a life online"--
