“This book's extensive review of current academic research on the social dynamics underlying cyberbullying is particularly beneficial in revealing such complexities as the gender and ethnic patterns of online bullying, the types of students most likely to be involved in this activity, and the ways that fellow students can discourage, or encourage, bullying.” (Choice, 1 November 2012)
This indispensable book shows us the reality of young peoples' digital lives and presents a wide range of specific, practical, and research-based interventions to build online safety, reduce harm, and help youth develop positive digital citizenship. Highly recommended!

and Empowering Bystanders in Bullying Prevention
Accurate information is empowerment. With this book, Kowalski, Limber and Agatston empower all of us to cut through the hype around cyberbullying and address it intelligently and with the sensitivity it requires.
- Anne Collier, Editor for NetFamilyNews.org and Co-Director of ConnectSafely.org
This book provides an eloquent mix of research theories and findings, together with actual experiences, in the important area of cyberbullying. It is especially strong in well-developed and comprehensive chapters about what parents and educators can do, to reduce both the likelihood of cyberbullying happening, and its negative consequences.
