The Internet is a Playground had me at times snickering out loud and at other times feeling awful for his victims (particularly when they were powerless customer service types). The author has loads of funny bits - mostly emails with various people - internet scammers, the new guy in his apartment building, his kid's teacher, etc. I loved the bit with the pie charts, but felt crummy about other bits. Nonfic humor is a tricky line to walk. 5/10.
