The Internet Survival Guide Series "Protecting Your Family" is a terrific little book. Although written primarily with the family in mind, the advice and practical tips can be applied by anyone who cares for his family, friends and business associates. I'm buying more copies just to give as gifts. James Christiansen is a father with three children. His care and concern for his family is evident as he writes the material in a well-organized and easy-to-read style for all ages. Our children can be negatively affected as the use of on-line social networking increases. I learned that sexual predators are targeting our children. I've been sharing a lot of this information with my son because he just got his own laptop and is not under the protection of our home computer. The author gives lots of real life examples based on his extensive experience in the information security arena. You can tell that he wants to protect his wife and children and he gives you all the tips and advice on how to accomplish it for your family. This book is filled with a tremendous amount of practical information that can be used to prevent your family members from falling victim to predators when they use instant messaging and spend on-line time in chat rooms. Even music file sharing sites present potential for allowing someone to have access to the important and private files on your computer. I'm really impressed with what I've learned from this book. I also have the other two companion books in the series called "Protecting Your Financial Information" and "Protecting Your Home Computer." I keep all of them right next to my computer for daily reference. I highly recommend this book!!

Extremely practical guide to protect our most valuable asset--our children! This book is a quick read, but you wouldn't want to miss a single page. It not only helps one to protect the kids, but also offers great insights for reducing spam, unwanted content, and unwanted visitors. This is a "must have" for parents, and a "great have" for everyone else!
