My Review -

The all-seeing digital eyes is a debut book of Neville J Kattakayam. This book gives an insight into internet threats and how to avoid them. The title and cover of the book go perfectly with the content. 

The book divides into three parts. In the first part, the author talked about digital literacy, in which how the internet business works and a user can understand their devices. In the second part, he gives a detailed description of online threats. In the third part, a person can learn and understand how to take control over menace. 

The main aim of this book is to people aware of online dangers and ways to avoid them. The book is a guide with different examples to understand different terms. The author's daughter is 13-year old, and she can't use a smartphone or social media until 18. While writing this book, the author keeps her teenage daughter in mind. Well, I also support his decision and concern because we heard many cases happening in the world. Internet addiction is dangerous. Every parent must teach their children about the use and misuse of technologies. 

The author includes almost every online threat in this book, like Trolling, Doxing, Cyberbullying, Catfishing, Sexting, Hacking, Revenge Porn, Phishing, Malware, and many more. On a personal level, I know most of them, but few things were new for me. The language is quite simple. Neville didn't use difficult or techie terms. This made the whole content striking. I felt like reading a school book, and maybe that's the whole point so a teenager or someone who doesn't know anything about the Internet can understand easily. 

It's a great debut book. There are no grammatical errors. But few instances are repeating. It didn't bore me, and it's fast-paced. I really enjoy reading this book. I like the second part most. The author gives a message to parents as well. I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially to teenagers and their parents.
