As the book flap proclaims:

In Caught in the Net, Kimberly Young shares the results of her three-year study of Internet abuse. Often using the words of Internet addicts themselves, she presents the stories of dozens of lives that were shattered by an overwhelming compulsion to surf the Net, play virtual games, or chat with distant and invisible neighbors in the timeless limbo of Cyberspace. Why is the Internet so seductive? What are the warning signs of Internet addiction? Is recovery possible? Dr. Young answers these questions and many more. She provides a questionnaire to help Net users determine whether they are addicts and offers concrete steps for problem users to regulate Internet usage and devise a more balanced place for it in their daily lives. To Internet addicts as well as their parents, spouses, friends, and employers, Caught in the Net offers guidance on where and how to seek help from counselors, therapists, and other professionals who take this affliction seriously. For mental health professionals, this book provides insights into the nature and causes of Internet addiction and encourages counselors and therapists to expand their addiction recovery programs to address the specific problems of Internet addicts.
