Future of Reputation

Are you a blogger?

Are you interested in the issues of Internet gossip, rumor, privacy, anonymity, and free speech?

Are you interested in writing a short book review?

If so, I’m offering you a free review copy of my new book, The Future of Reputation: Gossip, Rumor, and Privacy on the Internet.

My book is about blogging, and I discuss how information spreads rapidly throughout the blogosphere – with both good and problematic effects. Obviously, I want to try to harness the good side of the blogosphere’s power, and that’s why I’m trying this experiment. The purpose of my book is to spark a discussion about the issues, and I cannot imagine a more appropriate way to do so than in the blogosphere.

If you’re interested in reviewing the book, please send me an email with your address, a brief description of your blog, information about your readership and visitor traffic, and a link to your blog.

If the response is overwhelming, I may not be able to send a book to everyone. My publisher only supplied me with a limited number of free review copies, so once they’re gone, you’re out of luck. Preference will be given based on the following factors: the promptness of your request, the relevance of the issues you blog about to the issues discussed in my book, and your visitor traffic. In other words, if you primarily blog about albino panda bears, or if you are the only reader of your blog, I won’t be too keen on depleting my precious stock of review copies for you.

Please note that I’m sending copies in exchange for your writing a review — so whether you like the book, love it, or hate it — I’d like you to air your candid thoughts on your blog.

So please email me a request soon, while supplies last!
