Praise

[A]n especially virtuous endeavor given that so many of us are now continually engaged in our own fitful projects of online content creation.—Mark O’Connell, The New Yorker

In the small but growing body of literature on the subject, this work stands out as a complete overview. Though academic in nature, the writing shapes an engaging topic into an approachable narrative for the general audience.

Library Journal

The history of comment as a genre has never been treated with such care and stewardship as it is by Reagle…

PopMatters

Reagle…offers a rollicking-yet-thoughtful tour through comment threads across the web—from book reviews to Facebook spats and from commercial contexts to intimate spaces of self-expression. Amply spiced with jokes and comics, and anchored with just enough theory to structure the discussion, Reagle’s book should be read by anyone with an interest in ‘the bottom half of the web.’

Frank Pasquale, The Chronicle of Higher Education
