About the Author
Chris Hansen is the correspondent for the successful "To Catch a Predator" series. For the last twelve years, he has been an on-air correspondent for NBC's Dateline.

To sum up, if you're a parent that has no idea what the internet is then I guess it's a good book to read.
But to expect that is to forget that even though he is a good entertainer and story teller, Chris Hansen is in his heart a journalist. He wants to tell a good story, but instead of simply telling the same one over and over (which he could easily have done and walked away with a healthy pocket of change) Hansen wants to tell the whole story. In this book he looks at the epidemic of child sexual abuse via computer from all sides. Rather than simply rehash what we have seen on the television he uses the book to explore the depths of this silent and terrifying epidemic in ways that television doesn't allow. The reader who expects to be 'entertained' by watching the predators walk into the trap and get snapped up over and over may be dissappointed. Chris Hansen's book will require thought and effort by the reader. Instead of merely sitting back and being spoon-fed stories the book digs into this horrible epidemic and examines it from many angles. It is required reading for any household with a computer and children under the age of eighteen.
