Format: Paperback
This is a terrific book concerning this subject! where as Patrick carnes book 'out of the shadows', explain sexual addiction well, this book elaberates more on the online and cyber sex aspects of compulsive online behavior.
The fact that four authors have co-wrote this book, as looking at about the authors at the end of book elaberates the speciality of their field of study and how this has made the book such a broad range and helpfull/resourcefull.
The personal stories that accompany the issues being discussed makes the book understandable, and the problems being discussed more addressable.

I would really recommend this book and congratulate the authors on a good book at a sensitive subject!

If you are addicted to porn, or significantly know someone who is, this explains how much of a disease addiction to Net Porn is, and that it is NOT some harmless passtime as addicts would have you believe. It affects absolutely every part of the addicts life, and this explains how and why.

Format: Paperback
This book is not an easy read, it is quite academic. It is, however, worth persisting with for anyone who feels they, or someone they know, has become addicted to cyber sex. The book would make very good reading for someone working in the mental health field with people who have any form of sexually addiction. It explains how the problems manifest themselves and how it deal with it. There are several self diagnosis tools, some of which are a little uncomfortable to answer, that help to identify the addiction.

I was recommended this book. It was OK but I was disappointed by the lack of evidence to support what it was saying.

This is quite a good book if you feel you may be addicted to internet porn. The book is long and has a lot of 'case studies' which do not add a great deal. It also uses a lot of 'medical' style terms which make it difficult to read. Try first reading 'Addiced to Internet Porn' by Ivan McVeigh. Clear simple and short, then move on to this book for more information.
