I've been looking for a guide about privacy, as opposed to cyber security, to recommend to ordinary people that use the internet, rather than understand the security issues of the internet. This book is what I've been looking for.
Violet Blue has hit the nail on the head: This is not a guide to shrinking from an online existence, but preparing women to be able to express themselves safely. Dangers are clearly stated, and popular myths debunked. A good selection of additional resources are included.
The balance between convenience and safety online is a difficult one to get right. But with the internet privacy debate dominated by large corporations it's great that someone else is redressing that balance.
