Format: Paperback
If you're overwhelmed and don't do computers, START HERE. If you're currently reading this review on your Amazon app and pinning its cover at the same time, you're not the target audience for this book. Buy it for your mom who keeps asking you to print her friends' Facebook status updates (THAT IS NOT HOW IT WORKS! THAT'S NOT HOW ANY OF IT WORKS!). This is the perfect book to give as a gift to anyone who is struggling with how to make their lives better through technology (instead of worse!). With different sections for different areas of life, it's an easy read and Sarah has a great voice. -- Rita Arens, author of contemporary young adult novel THE OBVIOUS GAME (InkSpell Publishing, 2013) The Obvious Game and editor of parenting anthology SLEEP IS FOR THE WEAK (Chicago Review Press, 2008) Sleep Is for the Weak: The Best of the Mommybloggers Including Amalah, Finslippy, Fussy, Woulda Coulda Shoulda, Mom-101, and More!

Format: Paperback
This book is a great tool (and a quick yet thorough guide) for the best ways to navigate the digital world. Author Sarah Granger gives specific, thoughtful, timely advice on all aspects of being online, from your personal life to your business life.
She takes a refreshing and practical approach. Like me, she believes the best communities consist of both online and offline components and she provides specific tips on such topics as managing your online persona and building your business.

One of my favorite lessons she notes is, "as technology continues to play a greater role in our lives, we have more and more opportunities to reach out and help others online, and to make our own lives more meaningful in the process." This is the law of giving in action.

For anyone who gets results with and through relationships, this book should be on your shelf.

Format: Paperback
Sarah Granger is a thoughtful, wise technology thinker. This book allows her to share her experience, her knowledge and her original, intriguing perspective on our lives online. By dividing her analysis into the areas of those lives, from community to parenting, politics to aging, friendship to business and more, she provides new ways to look at the experiences we thought we knew. The moving, smart, funny anecdotal material adds a great deal to the theories themselves, and the book moves quickly. The only thing that really slows the reader down is the frequent need to stop and say "Wow! I never thought of it that way!"

Format: Paperback
The Digital Mystique is a helpful primer on how individuals and communities can benefit and flourish in our world of hyper-connectivity.

Sarah Granger, a well-known leader and connecter in the digital world, provides key resources, explainers and action tips that will help jumpstart your effectiveness online. Her chapter on digital campaigning, "The Difference a Tweet Makes," starts with the story of Miles Scott, a gravely ill child granted his wish of becoming "Batkid" for a day in the city of San Francisco. Miles' wish took over the internet for days in November 2013, connecting millions of people from around the world in compassion and celebration of life. Like many others, I had a personal connection to Miles after learning of his story in an email from a friend who's daughter had also been granted a wish through Make-A-Wish Foundation. We'd also used online tools to organize a bone marrow match search and registration drive for my friend's daughter.

In the face of personal and societal crisis, each of us, thanks to the internet, have access to community unparalleled in history.

Sarah's book is full of illustrative examples like the outpouring of online and offline support for Miles and his dream, backed up by helpful information on tools and techniques needed to go from idea to action online. It recognizes the new collective power we have to do good, to achieve our dreams, to move policymakers and government, and to share our stories to create a better world.

Finally! A How-to book for everyday people living in the digital age. Digital expert Sarah Granger writes clearly, practically and from the heart about how digital tools and social networks can enhance our lives - and give important rules to keep us safe, happy and still authentic while doing so. So much is written about how we are doomed because of social media: lack of privacy, inability to connect in real life, horrible bullying, etc. But Sarah presents a much more positive - and realistic - perspective on all the good things digital connection offers us everyday in terms of human connection - but gives us straight talking tips on how to protect ourselves, our kids and our privacy at the same time. I especially loved this quote: "I'd always been an advocate of the power of the Internet in supporting causes, campaigns and initiatives, but I hadn't taken the time to stop and think about how it could help individuals in their daily lives. The digital universe - the Internet and everything connected to it through wires and airwaves - is full of these communities....these communities comprise the source of the real mystique, opportunity, and possibility." I'm pretty digitally savvy, running my business on the web and involved in many social media networks but this I learned a ton of helpful hints while reading this book. I highly recommend it to everyone from internet marketers to stay at home moms to retirees traveling the world!
