From the Preface:

This is a book for every teen and an essential resource for every parent and teacher. Especially though, this is a book for the computer savvy, keyboard-comfy teens who use the Net every day and want to know how to secure their systems, preserve their Net lifestyles, and protect their data. This book provides important details to keep those teens, their privacy, their identities, and their reputations safe in cyberspace. 

In short, this book is for normal teenagers—like you. We realize that you under- stand quite a bit about computers, probably a lot more than your parents. We also know from our own teens where the gaps in your computer knowledge tend to fall. We wrote this book to address those gaps. 

Because we know your time is limited, we've kept this short and tried to focus on the important aspects of security. We also kept it interesting by including real examples and case studies from real teenagers just like you.  

Even if you are a power user, this book is still for you! Sure, you’ll know a number of the details we cover. Still, we are willing to bet that you’ll find a number of details you weren't aware of before. And you’ll certainly find a lot of detailed information you can share with a less enlightened friend, sibling, or parent.
