'A rallying cry for privacy justice' New York Times 'We need more warriors like Carrie' Tarana Burke, founder of the MeToo movement In an era of doxing, revenge porn and online stalking, the law is failing us. Tech companies are untouchable and often women are persecuted.

Carrie Goldberg built her law firm on battling these unprecedented cases - from stalkers haunting their exes through social media and dating apps, to schools suspending girls who report sexual assault, to trolls making fake bomb threats in their victims' names. Here, she tells her clients' stories alongside her own remarkable journey to become the lawyer she once needed.

Gripping and inspiring, Nobody's Victim shows how we must rewire the legal system for the age of the internet and gives us the weapons to fight back.

Reviews for Nobody's Victim: Fighting Psychos, Stalkers, Pervs and Trolls

We need more warriors like Carrie using the law to help take down sexual predators and the institutions that protect them - Tarana Burke, founder of the Me Too movement In the age of doxxing, revenge porn, and misogynist trolls, this book is required reading. . . . In telling these wrenching stories, Goldberg gives voice to the legions who have experienced unthinkable violence - Esquire, Best Books of Summer 2019 This is an illuminating and significant window into the present state of victims' rights and a potentially powerful resource for readers dealing with abuse or harassment - Publishers Weekly Thoroughly researched and with shocking anecdotes from Carrie and her clients, Nobody's Victim is an indispensable work for anyone who wants to understand how we got here and, more importantly, what we need to do to fight back. Part memoir and part manifesto, Nobody's Victim is thoughtful, urgent and impossible to put down - Nancy Jo Sales, author of New York Times bestseller American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Life of Teenagers and director of HBO s Swiped: Hooking up in the Digital Age Nobody's Victim provides the raw honesty that we desperately need as we examine how the Internet age has upended everyday life. Only Carrie Goldberg could tell this powerful, compelling, and lucid story, which gives voice to so many people who have experienced unimaginable harms. As policymakers debate how to make the Internet--and the world--a safer place, I hope that Nobody's Victim will be at the top of their reading list - Jeff Kosseff, author, The Twenty-Six Words That Created the Internet Carrie Goldberg is a warrior against trolls and misogynists, as she bravely details in Nobody's Victim. The experiences of Carrie's clients may boil your blood--but beneath these known statistics is the reality that most harassment remains unseen, unreported, and legal. Nobody's Victim is a call to arms against abusers, and a reminder that survivors of gendered violence are not alone in their fight - Audrey Gelman, CEO and Co-Founder of The Wing A timely, necessary and uniquely authoritative book about the modern-day scourges of on-line harassment, stalking, sextortion, and non-consensual porn--and how to fight them. Goldberg's book is also a strikingly honest memoir and a riveting read. The stories she tells illuminate real horrors, as well as real bravery--her own and that of the people she represents - Margaret Talbot, staff writer, The New Yorker
