THE PSYCHOLOGY OF THE INTERNET Cambridge University Press, $16.95 Can you really find a date on the Internet? Yes, but online-heartthrobs usually prove disappointing in the flesh. Romance, prejudice, pornography, family: just about everything of interest can be found online. Author Patricia M. Wallace, an information specialist with the Center for Talented Youth at Johns Hopkins University, examines the Internet and relevant behavioral research. Is online pornography turning people into sex maniacs? Do men and women behave differently on the Web? Is the Internet addictive? If answers are available, they’re here.
