4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly essential, short, easy reading., 23 Aug. 2013
Laurie Penny has produced an insightful, thought-provoking petit-treatise on online conduct, its origins and methods, specifically in relation to misogyny. Speaking from a clear, professional understanding of the subject and from personal experience there are moments of candour that are simultaneously heart-warming and teeth-clenching. Whilst there are some conclusions and - at times, sweeping - assertions with which I politely disagree, it remains an approachable, erudite and compelling piece of writing. I read it in one sitting, re-read it and then sent thoughts to the author, who I consider to be one of the more exciting young journalists around. To say that it is essential reading for anyone who uses the internet would be an exaggeration, but not a wild one.
