Item Description...
Overview
Like any new frontier, cyberspace offers both exhilarating possibilities and unforeseen hazards. As personal information about us travels the globe on high-speed networks, often with neither our knowledge nor our consent, a solid understanding of privacy and security issues is vital to the preservation of our rights and civil liberties. In reaping the benefits of the information age while safeguarding ourselves from its perils, the choices we make and the precedents we establish today will be central in defining the future of the electronic frontier. Since 1991, the non-profit Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has worked to protect freedoms and advocate responsibility in new media and the online world. In Protecting Yourself Online, Robert Gelman has drawn on the collective insight and experience of EFF to present a comprehensive guide to self-protection in the electronic frontier. In accessible, clear-headed language, Protecting Yourself Online addresses such issues as: avoiding spam [junk mail] spotting online scams and hoaxes protecting yourself from identity theft and fraud guarding your email privacy [and knowing when you can't] assessing the danger of viruses keeping the net free of censorship and safe for your children protecting your intellectual property Produced by the leading civil libertarians of the digital age, and including a foreword by one of the most respected leaders in global business and the cyberworld, Esther Dyson, Protecting Yourself Online is an essential resource for new media newcomers and old Internet hands alike.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Disappointed...  Apr 10, 1999
I read this book and was very disappointed. The title is mis-leading, as there is really very little information about protecting yourself on-line. What little information could be found was introductory to say the least. I also felt that the book was a lobbying tool, trying to bring me over to the civil liberties world. A thumbs down...
 
Had to counter that one-star review  Jan 7, 1999
Sure, it's not too detailed, and sure, a lot of tech people are already going to be familiar with a lot of the information in it, but for novices, it's great. It's a great book to give the uncle who keeps sending you false virus alarms, or the grandmother that doesn't understand the civil liberties implications of the Communications Decency Act -- or the cousin that thinks hackers are going to break into her bank account if she buys a modem.
 
Not worth the money.  Sep 23, 1998
If you need a book about how to protect yourself online don't buy this one, it won't help you. The authors are just taking stock of the well-known problems in the Internet and offer some links to other sides.
 
I've read this one too  Sep 12, 1998
The author of this book spends all his time detailing the problem without a single keystroke of solution. Is there a book out there that realy turns the advantage back to parents and Internet users? The only book I like is "Life and Death on the Internet" by Keith A. Schroeder. At least two-thirds of Life and Death is solutions. Who cares about the problem. We all know it exists, just open a newspaper. I would pass on this book. Life and Death on the Internet is better.
