Parents should read this to ensure that their children can be protected in the very public Internet which is a very large window into all our homes.
The author presents both sides of how technology works for us and against us. And sometimes in ways that we are not even aware of. Hence the technocreepiness.
The book also informs readers of pro-active ways to protect themselves now and their best interests in the future. It was an "eye-opener" for me, and I have been in the technology business for many years.
