I can see this book getting to star but I choose to gives it only one and that for a quit good reason. The book is well written and easy to read but that all it is this book is made of pure paranoia and lack of understanding of the people using the internet.
When I first picked this book it was for a reason but after reading few chapters I noticed the trends in the book and I understood I was fooled when I picked it up.
When I saw the title and the subject of the book I was immediately interested as I truly noticed the problem in the internet user and when I start reading the TOC I was convinced that this guy truly managed to holds on the problems.
But instead he start discussing an extreme freaks problems and try to convince the reader that the freaks effect is actually are consuming us and these effect are true on every one but has different level effect. He then starts constructing the mentality of the internet user using the freaks example, some extreme cases and some observation he made about the internet community but as soon as you start reading these analysis you understand that he’s truly are just another shallow user who a actually know nothing about the internet community and cyber life. He’s just another cave man who is trying to make sense of something he truly doesn’t understand. He actually can’t even differentiate between the problem restricted on the internet and the problems that actually common to every thing else and that what make this book even worse
But I like to be fair to the writer and say that two of the chapters in book (the one that talking about sex and the one talking about the end of privacy) are quit good but still you feel all the paranoia and dooms days mentality the author use lingering around every where.
I’m here are not trying to clam that the psychiatric skill for the the Author are lacking I’m just stating that his knowledge regarding this subject are lacking and extremely paranoid.
What made me even more convinced that I should give this book one star is that the Author feels like he’s just another doomsday prophet who’s trying to warn the world of its coming demise. (less)

The Book is less scientific then his previous the author is arguing a lot of issues based on theories that he fail to explain to the reader and expect him to accepted as facts and in other areas he based his theories on weak evidence. in other world most what been presented here are the Authors ideas which it weaker then to be called theories but more likely should be called hypotheses.
in the end the purpose of this book is not like Hawking previous to discuses his scientific ideas but actually is to show that we don't need religion or the Idea of God and how false and understandable people make the mistake in believing in them.
قد يتفاجئ البعض بهذا التقيم لكتاب لعالم مثل ستيفن هوكنج وحقيقة رغم أني أحترم عقليه هونكج العلمية الا أني لست معجب بطريقة كتاباته، ولكن هذا الكناب يعتبر أسواء ما كتب وذلك لأنه ليس كتاب علمي بل هو كتاب فلسفي. كتب هوكنج التجارية في العادة لا تناسب القارئ العادي وذلك لأنه يناقش أمور صعبه الفهم لمن ليس لدية خلفية قوية ومتقدمة في علم الفيزياء ولكن في هذا الكتاب فأن ستيفين هونكج لا يهتم كثيرا في شرح النظريات والفرضيات التي يبني عليها هو فرضياته الخاصة ويريد القارئ أن يقبل بأنها ثوابت رغم أنها بعيدة كل البعد أن تكون كذلك وهذا ما يثير حفيظتي كطالب علم وخصوصا بمعرفتي أن ممعظم ما يذكر الكاتب هي فرضيات او نظريات مختلف فيها.
في الأخير هوكنج ليس مهتم بأثبات نظريات أو خلافة في هذا الكتاب بل هو مهتم بضحد الأيمان بالأديان فهو هنا يعرض أن العلم كفيل بأن يشرح كيف بداء الكون دون وجود خالق وأن وجودنا في هذا الحياة ليست معجزة وأنما أمر طبيعي وأن ما يظهر بأنه تصميم دقيق ما هو الا نتيجة مصادفة كانت أكيدة الحدوث وهذة الفكرة حقيقة ليس جديدة ولكن ما يقدمة الكاتب كدليل لا يتعدى كونة فرضية شديدة الضعف وفكرة تطور الأديان التي يتحدث عنها الكاتب تظهر مدى ضعة في العلوم الأجتماعية وأنه ليس بهذا الأطلاع في العلوم الأخرى
