"Get off your phone and read Jess Kimball Leslie's funny book!"
— Andy Cohen, host of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live

"Chatting up randos on AOL, writing feckless corporate tweets, stalking gone-to-seed high-school crushes on Facebook: Jess's life story is as hilarious and weird as the Internet she grew up with. This book is a warm, funny look at how our online and offline worlds became inextricably woven together."
— Clive Thompson, WIRED columnist and author of Smarter Than You Think

The first personal history of growing up with technology and the internet. The chapter on Twitter is priceless.
— Steve Eisman, investor who was the inspiration for Mark Baum's character in the film The Big Short

"Jess Kimball Leslie is funny and delightful. Read her book now!"

— Carol Leifer, writer for Seinfeld, Modern Family, and more; producer; and author of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Crying

"When I heard this tale in person, I was mesmerized. When I read it, I couldn't stop laughing. Life online with Jess is as electric as her computer and her stories."
— Kathy Najimy, actress and comedian

"In honor of all of us on The Internet, I will only read the title of this book and form an opinion: It's great!"

— Marc Shaiman, composer and lyricist for films and television
