Each of these books covers a comprehensive variety of topics and are nicely organized, with chapters in a chronological sequence from the history of each topic to a chapter dealing with “The Future of …”. The only exception is Online Privacy. Each volume has a Facts About section, Related Organizations, and For Future Research. The Facts About section would have been better placed as sidebars as their placement at the back of each book makes them seem less important. Predicting the future and keeping these books current will be a challenge; they are as current today as they can be, and will provide students with up-to-date information about a breadth of current issues.

School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up–This series tackles the ever-changing landscape of the Internet. Each book highlights an issue that students might face, such as online predators, protecting one’s privacy, and determining a quality research website. Anecdotes are sprinkled throughout as well as technological histories like how Google and Wikipedia came to be. Both sides of issues are presented in an unbiased manner. For example, Entertainment explores the positive aspects of online gaming and the negative impact of addiction, while Social Networking examines the benefits and drawbacks to virtual networking and communication. The personal stories help the readable texts flow smoothly. Crossover and repetitive information weaves itself into several of the books.
