Reviews

"Altogether, Thumin has produced a valuable study, full of insight and observation, of the multiple ways in which 'ordinary' people represent their 'ordinariness' through representing themselves, speaking about their lives, giving expression to their experiences. She attends to all this in a cohesive and integrated manner, offering us a highly satisfactory account of selfrepresentations

in digital culture." - European Journal of Communication 28(6)

"Thumim's first book is eloquently written and well-researched, and it manages to effectively distill and relay the ideas of complex and emerging topics. The work interrogates the meaning of truth, authenticity, and validity with regards to self-representation. Undergraduate and graduate students in media and communication studies would benefit from this highly enjoyable read, which is also scholarly, rigorous, in-depth, and precise." - International Journal of Communication 7, (2013)
