I picked up this book because I wanted to know more about Zoe's experience, and was pleasantly surprised to find her devoting a large deal of the book to analyzing the systems that enable online abuse. She is incredibly impressive in the way she not only survived her experience, but documented it...

tbh, before I read this book, I figured at least writing a review would be quick. I was well aware of what Quinn had been put through, and I was worried that saying anything critical at all would help the haters hate some more, so I figured I would be saying something like "yay standing up agains...

Quinn has taken the huge bushel basket of lemons she got by being a victim of a vindictive ex and the GamerGate mob and has turned it into lemonade for herself and other victims of online harassment. Here she is brutally honest in her telling of that awful time, and how she has come out the other...

Amazing-- deeply personal but very informed. Definitely much more than a memoir it's a practical and knowledgeable guidebook on online harassment and what everyone -- advocates, journalists, non-profits, law enforcement and just regular internet users can be doing better on this issue.

Part memoir, part ode to cyberculture; Quinn shares her experiences as a game developer, professional, and victim of online abuse at the hands of Gamergate. This book was thoughtful and raw. I appreciated Quinn's honesty and solutions-oriented take on the problem that is online abuse. I think thi...

Zoe Quinn didn't need to do any of this. She could have just written down what happened, spit some insults at the vilest of the vile manchildren who caused it, and cashed a check. She didn't have to draw a straight line from the hordes of unbelievably hateful GamerGaters to the richest tech compan...

Zoë Quinn has written an important book, but not necessarily a great one. There's a lot of insight here into both her personal experience and the issue of online assault, but I think I learned more and had a better time with Jon Ronson's SO YOU'VE BEEN PUBLICLY SHAMED. Ms. Quinn's is an important...

Audible narration and production: no complaints. I always prefer to “read” personal nonfiction in the author's voice. Could have benefitted from some tighter editing (name mispronunciation, grammar), but not distracting. The first half is a memoir surrounding the rise and fall of GG and its impac...

Complete Waste of Time and Money Giving this blog-in-book-form 2 stars only because it does highlight the abuses people endure when they are targeted by the hate machine.  No one should be subjected to that abuse. The second star is because this book reminded me why I read everything with a critica...

I wasn’t sure I wanted to read this as I thought it would be rather depressing, but I’m glad I checked it out. Internet abuse is a horrible thing to read about, and some really rotten things happened to Quinn, but I liked how she dedicated a large chunk of her book to prevention and suggestions o...
