Cybercology Bookshelf

The books reviewed on this site are directly related to one of the eight key areas around the interaction of digital technology and human behaviour and psychology.

These books are recommended reading to give you a bit more insight into the impact of digital technology and human behaviour/psychology. They are listed in each category by date order, as research in CyberPsychology is still relatively in its youth, so new insights are being discovered every day. More recent understanding of our technology related psychology should, theoretically at least, trump less recent insights and assumptions.

A review of some of the books are available (click on the image or the link). 

Caveat: Endorsement of a book, or some of the content, does not equate to endorsement of all the opinions or actions of the author or all of the content contained within the book.
