"The book is quite readable, and some chapters are of professional interest to security practitioners. But chapters 1 through 8 should be read by those who use the Internet and who are interested in protecting their privacy, their assets, and even their very lives." -G. Ernest Govea, in Security Management "...for the more advanced criminologist or criminologist in training, this book could be very useful. Overall, the book has a good selection of authors in SNA, and discussion of a nice assortment of current cybercrimes, including identity theft and cyberbullying. The authors also do a sufficient job of distinguishing between SNA and social networking (e.g., Facebook, Twitter). Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, faculty, professionals. -L. L. Hansen, Western New England University
