This book offers various articles that cover almost all asepcts of the field of the internet psychology researches.
Having gone through several chapters, however, I haven't found something new to me.
So readers should not expect this book to be an inspiring book that leads you to new research items. Instead, this book may give you enough background knowledge that make you informed enough about the field.
