Format: Paperback
Travis Morgan deserves a humanitarian award for his exceptionally useful, easily accessible, plain talk adjunct that should be beside every computer keyboard (or tucked in the carrying case of portables) of everyone who uses the computer as a communication device: these days that is likely everyone! Though one of the features that is gaining the most attention from readers is Morgan's extensive instruction on how to prevent children who use the computer from falling victim to those who abuse the format for the means of satisfying unsavory needs (and indeed Morgan teaches us all how to avoid that sort of criminal abuse), the aspect of the book goes far beyond that.

For the bulk of readers the items covered in this book are those that simply are buried in manuals and even the Computer for Dummies books - those simply things such as how to manage files, share files, search the internet, the benefits and incipient dangers of browsing the internet, the ins and outs - positive and negative - of email usage, chat (both by word and by video) rooms/spaces, a superb overview of 'social media' and how to maintain privacy, how to TRULY clean your computer of unwanted files/browsing history/cookies/clicking on 'Like' on sites that lead to places you'd rather not visit, etc.

What makes this book so invaluable to all computer users (from beginners through moderately experienced users up to IT techs) is Travis Morgan's warmly helpful and yet sternly didactic technique of sharing all of this important information.

Format: Kindle Edition
As a career professional in information technology, Travis Morgan has the credentials and the experience to write a book on computer forensics. "Catch Me If You Know How" is a "must" read for anyone who has the need to check on how a computer is being used (or misused), whether it's a child who may be into pornography or an online relationship with a sexual predator; a cheating spouse; or an employee who's goofing off on the job and spending way too much time on their computer for personal affairs.

This is a book that needed to be written. I've had a personal computer since 1981, and although I'm not a certified computer geek, I know my way around computers fairly well. Even so, I learned a lot of tricks from the book. The book covers a broad range of internet activities, including web browsing, email, social media, chat and instant messaging, and file sharing (peer to peer networks). Each chapter gives very specific ways to examine a computer and determine what a user has been doing. There are screenshots from different browsers (Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, and Chrome) that illustrate the techniques outlined in the book. Unfortunately, my e-ink Kindle is not the best platform for the screenshot graphics that were included. (They were more legible when I loaded the book into my Kindle for PC software.)

Since privacy issues are involved, the book includes a brief but informative overview of privacy rights, including the need to sometimes check with an attorney, and when a call to the police may be in order.

The author refers to his website (catchmeifyouknowhow[dot]com). I took a look, and the website was still in development at the time I wrote this review, but it looks like it will be a valuable resource, with a blog, tutorials, and videos.

As a physician who works with law enforcement, I have seen the terrible effects of sexual abuse and bullying. Now these evils have come to infect the world of high technology where most young people know far more than most adults. Mr. Morgan's book is the first clear guide I have see that will help parents and other protectors find the truth before it is too late. Thank you for an easy-to-read handbook that is sure to save lives.

Format: Kindle Edition
This book is a very useful tool, that is easy to read, understand, and relate to for the everyday person, be it a novice, or technical person. I range somewhere in the middle form of knowing some computer lingo and ways around my own computer. What this book gives you is valuable as Mr. Morgan helps you understand your way around your computer, and others to help prevent future issues we have in our daily lives. He touches serious topics with his light humor and very personal feel to the reader, offering them knowledge, comfort, and friendship. ( you really feel the kindness of his heart )

Having a young stepson of 18, and one on the way, i feel very blessed to have fate stumble this book into my view. I believe everything in life happens for a reason, and some things are unfortunate until moments like these are recorded by a single person trying to make a difference. I thank you for this book, and what you are trying to do.

Format: Paperback
Wondering what your kids are looking at on the Internet, or who they might be corresponding with on-line? Worried about a spouse or someone else and their Internet habits? Worried that someone might have an addiction to something on-line or need help? If these thoughts are keeping you awake, but you don't have a clue how to check or find out, computer professional Travis Morgan can help. His book "Catch Me If You Know How: Internet Edition" is a step by step guide that anyone can do to discover internet habits, dangers, and abusers.

You might first think that there could be some invasion of privacy issues here, and you may be right. While Travis wants people to use this information to help prevent tragedies and help those with problems, he also warns right up front that there are laws involved and you will be wise to consult an attorney, especially if you think your situation is serious enough to warrant a legal case.

The rest of the book is a basic guide on how to use computer forensics. It is a very short, easy, and direct book. It is also aimed at the computer novice, and a computer security professional probably won't find much new here. And those with some computer savvy might think the book too basic, looking for the super secret methods to hack computers from the movies, but in reality, these simple techniques and strategies are the backbone of computer forensic investigations and are what people need to look into what a computer has been used for.

The book covers the basics of web browsing, Email, social media, file sharing (something used in Tom Clancy's "Dead or Alive"), and a few advanced tips. There is also a chapter on monitoring and controlling Internet access that includes a little on children's rights and privacy.

More About the Author

Travis Morgan is an established Computer Specialist who has gained his knowledge through both professional and personal means. Travis' detailed personality and drive to learn new and innovative technologies is his "niche".In his 20 years of IT education and experience stemming from his own love for computers, he has been a successful entrepreneur and previously an Institutional Director of Information Technology and Vice President for a national college. His vast experience and education in Information Technology has afforded him the knowledge and experience to not only recognize personal behaviors and traits of subordinates and co-workers, but also the technical aspects of how abuses occur and the detection and tracking of those behaviors on personal, corporate and public computer systems.

Additionally, Travis has been exposed to technical and non-technical computer users in corporate, small business and residential environments. Various experiences and witnessing first hand the abusive nature of some people and the Internet, has led him to write this compelling book to help parents, teachers and anyone else who feels the need to understand how to track inappropriate behavior of users of the Internet.
With our society relying more and more on technology, Travis recognizes the dire need to educate and promote understanding of the growing dilemma of protecting our children online, observing and reviewing internet behaviors and protecting their households. Travis is concerned with the technology that exposes our most sacred lives, our children, which is why he has become an advocate of this purpose.

With all the horror stories we hear in our everyday lives regarding events attributed to internet use, it is Travis' attempt to aid those closest to a potential problem to have the tools necessary to avert any harm that could possibly be in progress or have previously occurred, through use of the internet.

Travis, who is now a deaf/blind man, lives in Temecula, CA, with his wife and two youngest children.

P.S. Look for more books to come in the 'Catch Me If You Know How' series.
