Description
 
Mary Aiken is the world’s leading expert in forensic cyberpsychology—a
discipline that combines psychology, criminology, and technology to investigate
the intersection where technology and human behavior meet. In this, her first
book, Aiken has created a starting point for all future conversations about how
the Internet is shaping development and behavior, societal norms and values,
children, safety, security, and our perception of the world. Cyberspace is an
environment full of surveillance, but who is looking out for us? The Cyber
Effect offers a fascinating and chilling look at a future we can still do
something about.

Drawing on her own research and extensive experience with law enforcement, Mary
Aiken covers a wide range of subjects from the impact of screens on the
developing child to the explosion of teen sexting, and the acceleration of
compulsive and addictive behaviors online (gaming, shopping, pornography). She
examines the escalation of cyberchondria (anxiety produced by self-diagnosing
online), cyberstalking, and organized cybercrime in the Deep Web. Aiken provides
surprising statistics and incredible-but-true case studies of hidden trends that
are shaping our culture and raising troubling questions about where the digital
revolution is taking us.

The Cyber Effect will upend your assumptions about your online life and forever
change the way you think about the technology you, your friends, and family use.
Readers will gain a new understanding of the rapid change taking shape around us
and come away with critical tools to become part of this very necessary
conversation.
