What Readers Say

James Mc Loughlin. US Review from Amazon 5 star rated
How to Keep your child and yourself safe. The importance of this cannot be more important in todays tech world. We are at its mercy if we do not take care and this book certainly helps. I would recommend it for all families that want to keep their children safe in this digital world. I have no doubt the stories in it are true and scary. We are all vulnerable if we are not careful. I would give this book 10 out of 10.
