What the experts say about Look Both Ways
Look Both Ways: Help protect your family on the Internet, Seattle: Microsoft Press, 2006.
"Internet safety is important for everyone. Look Both Ways is a great resource for learning how to protect yourself & your family online."
President and CEO,
National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC)
"As Microsoft's child safety expert, Linda has an impressive back-ground in online child protection, dealing with predatory behavior and in product risk analysis. Her work as an investigative journalism has honed a sharp, incisive and methodical mind which expresses itself in highly accessible writing. Being herself a mother of four also means Linda is always grounded in the nitty gritty realities of every parent's daily struggle to do the best they can for their kids."
Chair of the UK's NCH Children's Charities'
Coalition on Internet Safety
"Linda Criddle is a real Internet safety expert. With so many professing to understand how Internet sexual predators operate online, finding the real experts is a challenge. I look no further than Linda. She is one of the few people in the field I turn to with questions. A mom, a child protection advocate and a friend-children are safer because of her caring and work."
Internet Privacy and Security Lawyer
and Executive Director of Wiredsafety.org
"Look Both Ways is both informative and a much needed resource for a range of audiences, including business, government, parents, teachers and even perhaps young people themselves. Whilst much is said about the risks to children online there is little commentary that articulates them clearly and then goes on to identify ways in which they can be managed in a proactive and meaningful way. Look Both Ways will have significant international value, especially for those tasked with making the online world safer for children."

If you're a parent, do yourself a favor and buy a copy of this book. Perhaps more importantly, if you know any parents who aren't all that well-versed in online safety measures (and we all know at least one, right?!), buy them a copy as a holiday gift. Read his blog.
