In less than a month, my new book – “It’s Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens” – will be published. This is the product of ten years worth of research into how social media has inflected American teen life. If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you’ve seen me talk about these issues over the years. Well, this book is an attempt to synthesize all of that work into one tangible artifact.
Now I have a favor…. please consider pre-ordering a copy (or two <grin>). Pre-sales and first week sales really matter in terms of getting people’s attention. And I’m really hoping to get people’s attention with this book. I’ve written it to be publicly accessible in the hopes that parents, educators, journalists, and policy makers will read it and reconsider their attitude towards technology and teen practices. The book covers everything from addiction, bullying, and online safety to privacy, inequality, and the digital natives debate.
If you have the financial wherewithal to buy a copy, I’d be super grateful. If you don’t, I *totally* understand. Either way, I’d be super super super appreciative if you could help me get the word out about the book. I’m really hoping that this book will alter the public dialogue about teen use of social media.
Done! I daresay I have been waiting for this book for years. Can’t WAIT to read it!
Wow, this is exciting! I’m really looking forward to this!
And done. Can’t wait to read it!
I’m looking forward to this. It turns out to be available on Apple’s bookstore – I preordered a copy there (less expensive than Amazon’s)
Done, looking forward to reading it!
Done — long time reader and happy to provide some support!
Okay… pre-ordered it. I hope you’ll sign it next time I can contrive to be near.
Glad to see it’s been reviewed by Publisher’s Weekly. I hope it’s been reviewed in Library Journal or Booklist which may help with sales to libraries.
I think Amazon UK has the wrong idea – they’ve got it for sale at £10,500:
… although the Kindle edition is only £13 🙂
My copy arrived several days ago. I’m looking forward to reading it. I have followed the blog for a number of years, recommended it to others, etc. I’d read anything you wrote, because you have plenty of thoughtful, sane, intelligent, provocative stuff to say. Thanks for writing it!
Just got myself a copy. Congratulations!
Purchased – can’t wait to read it!
I pre-ordered from my local independent bookstore (Blue Marble Books in Philadelphia). Book arrived today (Feb 22). I’m so excited to read it. Congratulations.
