" - Your Teen Mag
"The tales are shamefully fascinating. The book does not dwell on the psychological or sociological aspects of trolling or shaming, emphasizing practical advice instead. With a foreword by Monica Lewinsky, this would be a good read for anyone who enjoyed Jon Ronson's So You've Been Publicly Shamed.

"We all have the power to create the inclusive Internet reality that we so desperately need. Scheff recognizes that participating in that creation can be overwhelming and intimidating, especially given the personal risks we face as women who want to join a public discourse, and provides in Shame Nation a clear-eyed, approachable guide to facing a hostile online environment while maintaining our dignity and sanity." - Emily Lindin, Founder and Director of The UnSlut Project
"This book offers readers an important and eye-opening exploration into how public shaming transforms lives in the digital age. By humanizing today's digital interactions, Scheff and Schorr show readers how to recognize, protect, and, when needed, restore their digital identity." - Stacey Steinberg, Legal Skills Professor, University of Florida Levin College of Law
"Shame Nation is a book that illustrates the harm our culture of shame can wreak when we fail to instill a sense of empathy and kindness. Sue Scheff's advice, couched in examples from current events, has already changed the way I approach social media. Her words have caused me to stop, think, and approach my online relationships from a place of respect, even when I'm angry or apt to reach for the keyboard in retribution for a perceived slight. Shame Nation is a practical and helpful book that forges a way forward through the gauntlet of social media and online shaming while encouraging an ethical approach to an increasingly judgmental world." - Jessica Lahey, New York Times bestselling author of The Gift of Failure
"Relatable, intelligent, and engaging from the first sentence, Shame Nation sheds much-needed light on our current culture of online shaming and cyberbullying. Thoroughly researched and packed with eye opening anecdotes, Shame Nation will help you learn why people choose to shame one another online, and what to do if it happens to you or a loved one. Sue Scheff is an invaluable resource in the digital world and this book should be required reading in high school, college, and the workplace." - Katie Hurley, LCSW and author of No More Mean Girls and The Happy Kid Handbook

A victim and survivor of online hate, Sue did not rest on her financial laurels after winning a landmark $ 11.3 million dollar judgement in compensation for the internet defamation and invasion of privacy that she was subjected to by vindictive cyberattackers. She could have enjoyed the rest of her life spending this money and forgetting about her traumatic experience. But NO! She decided to pursue the case in the court of public opinion and write this book which will provide a road map for everyone who suffered the same and for anyone who wants to proactively prevent it from happening, and everyone should.
“Shame Nation” is a valuable reference book written with passion and supported with resources that meet the needs of both victims and researchers of online hate. Cyberpsychology, Cyberethics, Cyberbullying, Online Reputation Management and online safety are just some of the topics that this book covers in depth.
I have read “Shame Nation” twice and I have the feeling the I will be reading it one more time. Not because it is a difficult read but because I am interested in the topic for professional reasons. Read it once and that will be enough to make a difference in your life and the life of others.
Great book with great insight into dangers and some good things about being on social media.
I learned a lot from this book, Perfect book to pass around specially if you are on social media.
The first part of the book is kind of short stories of unbelievable cases of what has happened to people online. Cases of things that don't go away like nude pics and videos once it's out there.
These people have suffered greatly due to the internet, some have gone into hiding and even have killed themselves. A lot of these stories I never heard of.
This book opens your eyes to a of dangers, wisdom and how to be safe online. Think about what you post before you hit send.
I highly recommend this book.
Also, this is not the first book to explore the fascinating phenomenon of online shaming, as it claims on the inside of the dust jacket. (So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson came out some years ago and is a much better book overall.) On the other hand, the dust jacket also claims that this book is the first to offer practical guidance and inspiring advice on how to prevent and protect against cyber blunders and faceless bullies. Whether it’s the first book, I don’t know, but I do think the later chapters of advice are the strongest parts of this book. Considering the all too real dangers of destroyed lives and careers through online mistakes, that alone makes this book worthwhile.
