It covers all of these issues and all of the operations and catching these sexual predatory dirtbags. ( Ofcourse I'm a "locker upper!")It is a great read, Chris Hansen is well spoken on all issues, and just does a great job with this one! Its full of information and sometimes will make you say "What" and sometimes "HMMMMM." It is probably the best beginners book for reading on the issue of online predators. There are more explicit and problably more scientific ones but this should be on every internet crimes against children bookshelf. GET THE BOOK!!!

Goes beyond the telivision edition

To Catch a predator written by Chris Hansen is a breath of freash air. Chris deals with a unpleasant subject in a dignified way. It goes way beyond the information we learned as Chris Hansen the television reporter on Dateline NBC'S "TO CATCH A PREDATOR" Series. Chris goes into detail how to protect your kids from online enemies already in your home. The book version deals with What motivates child predators and how they choose their prey. Chris takes a in-depth look at child victims and what made them targets. The book answers the questions of what happens to families who suddenly discover they are living with a child predator. The most important thing the book touches on is how parents can talk to their children about online safety without scaring them. If the TV show left you desiring more this book will answer those unanswered question in detail that only Chris Hansen has the ability to do. Well worth the small investment to help you and your children why you may become a target and how to prevent either of you from becomming a victim. I highly recommend this book to anyone whose lives Chris Hansen has touched with his very important series on child predators. Rich Morris

Must read!

Excellent book!! Great resources and stories behind the stories. I found myself talking to my kids all over about Internet Safety. I highly recommend this book to any parent or grandparent

Every parent makes this decision about the internet (whether they think about it or not)...

As the father of three sons, I had to decide on this issue: do I prevent my sons from using the internet or do I teach them to use it safely. Just to allow them to use the net without teaching them safe practices is about as smart as giving them a handgun and a pocket full of bullets. Since the internet has become such an important part of business and communication, I feel to keep them from using it at all is to handicap them. In this book, Hansen outlines a simple plan for using the internet safely. If you don't do anything else with the book, I'd recommend reading the 20 step plan for parents and children outlined starting on page 231. I own the software recommended in the last chapter and have foud that to be helpful as well. Charles Runels, MD

It will help everyone stay safer and be smarter online....

I've written several books on the subject and am generally considered a leading expert on cybersafety, especially when it comes ot kids online. When Chris first approached me asking what I thought about kids on (...)and cyberbullying, I was surprised. I had heard he was writing a book, but thought it would just be more of the kind of thing he was doing on Dateline. It turns out it is much more. And, it's a fast and good read. Easy, not techy. Compelling. Passionate. Inspiring. Touching. Empowering. It shares real stories. (Which we have learned is the best way to convey the safety messages in a compelling way.) It uses common sense. It brings together expertise from many of us in the field. I told Chris that I won't be writing another book for parents about overall cybersafety. He did too good a job in this for me to need to write any more. So, don't buy my book. Buy his. It's more than a guide on cybersafety, more than a book adaptation of the Dateline To Catch a Predator series. It's a primer on living with kids in this new world where everyone is wired and wireless 24/7. Thanks Chris. and thanks to all of those incredible people who helped tell the story of kids online, by sharing their own personal stories, and pain, and sacrifices and passion. (...)
