“Fascinating . . . If you have children, stop what you are doing and pick up a copy of The Cyber Effect.”—The Times (UK)
“An incisive tour of sociotechnology and its discontents.”—Nature
“Having worked with law enforcement groups from INTERPOL and Europol as well as the U.S. government, Aiken knows firsthand how today’s digital tools can be exploited by criminals lurking in the Internet’s Dark Net.”—Newsweek
“Aiken, a self-described forensic cyberpsychologist, shows in compelling detail how the online world bleeds into people’s daily lives in ways that occasionally involve actual bloodshed. . . . [Her] stories are stirring enough to stand alone: she covers the near-normalized phenomenon of online dating, the addictive and fatal extremes of gaming, and even murders that are motivated by aspirations of Internet fame. Some analysis focuses on how children respond to the digitized world, information that is especially useful to parents hoping to protect their children from developing bad habits or ending up in danger. . . . The relevance of Aiken’s careful discussion is undeniable.”—Publishers Weekly
“An expert in the field of cyberpsychology looks at how the interface between digital technology and our daily activities impacts social and personal relationships. . . . A thoughtful approach to the attractions, distractions, and pitfalls of our digital culture.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Just as Rachel Carson launched the modern environmental movement with her Silent Spring, Mary Aiken delivers a deeply disturbing, utterly penetrating, and urgently timed investigation into the perils of the largest unregulated social experiment of our time.”—Bob Woodward
“Drawing on a fascinating and mind-boggling range of research and knowledge, Mary Aiken has written a great, important book that terrifies then consoles by pointing a way forward so that our experience online might not outstrip our common sense. A must-read for this moment in time.”—Steven D. Levitt, co-author of the New York Times bestseller Freakonomics
“Mary Aiken takes us on a fascinating, thought-provoking, and at times scary journey down the rabbit hole to witness how the Internet is changing the human psyche. A must-read for anyone who wants to understand the temptations and tragedies of cyberspace.”—John R. Suler, PhD, author of The Psychology of Cyberspace
“Figuring out how to guide kids in a hyperconnected world is one of the biggest challenges for today’s parents. Mary Aiken clearly and calmly separates reality from myth. She clearly lays out the issues we really need to be concerned about and calmly instructs us on how to keep our kids safe and healthy in their digital lives.”—Peggy Orenstein, author of the New York Times bestseller Girls & Sex

Indeed I've read the book 3 times already and will read it again. I've made panel notes and cite this book in my presentations. It really is that good!
If you're involved in the cyber industry you must read this book. If you have children, you must read this book. If you're reading this review whilst looking down at a digital device... you MUST read this book.
My role is to educate and inspire change in our cyber thinking. This book will help me do this.
Buy it. I promise you you won't be disappointed.
It is appropriate that Dr Aiken's focus is on young and developing minds and consciousness.
Everyone who has a brain, read it.
