“The book is full of valuable information.  There are few books on cyberbullying based on large cohorts of students that can be used as a guide to design intervention and policy strategies to combat the international phenomenon of cyberbullying; this is therefore a welcome addition.”  (Child and Adolescent Mental Health, 1 September 2013)
