[This book] looks at the ways the abuse is perpetrated, its effects and the best way to stop it. Jam packed with useful advice, it is written from personal experience as well as careful research. Anyone who has a problem with an internet troll or bully who makes nasty comments on Facebook, in chat rooms or on blogs will benefit from reading this. It is never alright to be bullied and the first step to freedom is educating yourself about your choices"--Back cover.
