this book raises some interesting issues but takes a black-and-white, all-or-nothing view of these complex issues, leading to dangerous oversimplification. She offers reflection and small excerpts in the place of data. I was looking for an insightful critique of the uses of the Internet in education. What I got was an emotional, name-calling argument insulting my profession.
While this book is old (2002), it is interesting to see what remains relevant, and also what has informed today's Internet teaching and learning in higher education institutions.
