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

Nobody's Victim is an unflinching look at a hidden world most people don’t know exists—one of stalking, blackmail, and sexual violence, online and off—and the incredible story of how one lawyer, determined to fight back, turned her own hell into a revolution.    “We are all a moment away from having our life overtaken by somebody hell-bent on our destruction.” That grim re...

    Wow. Nobody's Victim is part memoir, part exploration victim protection in the internet age, and part call to arms.

    Seriously. there are few things more badass than the lines Goldberg opens her cease and desist letters with. "I represent [my client]. I'll be taking over negotiations from here. Negotiations just ended."

    It is a difficult book to read. There are predators of every type - pedophiles, white supremacists, rapists. But there is an undercurrent of strength, of fighting for what's right

    It is a difficult book to read. There are predators of every type - pedophiles, white supremacists, rapists. But there is an undercurrent of strength, of fighting for what's right and not giving up.

    If you want an inside look at how sexual abuse is fought in court and the major impact of the internet on how predators function, this book is a must read.

    After all, Goldberg is right: "We can battle with the system or fight to change the system... We are an army of warriors. The fight has just begun."

    This book is a phenomenal reference source for anyone and everyone that has an internet following. I have friends that reach a popular point and always get stalked. The book offers real life shocking experiences with narcisst psychopaths with a goal to ruin your life. There's a list of multiple resources with phone numbers and how to contact specific agencies for help. I found that the most valuable because it's difficult to find the right person or agency when you have a stalker tormenting you.

I have one right now and so glad I found this book, it's helpful for many different situations. But most of all I would say this book is a must read for everyone since I've read that 5 out of every 100 people are sociopaths.

    Thank you to Leah from Changing Hands Tempe for an early copy of this book!

There are real life legal cases involving all of these described in detail in this book, so please be aware, and if you are not in a place where you can read about that, please don't).

    So I don't even know where to start with this book because my thoughts and emotions are in a huge puddle, but in an attempt to sum it up...I loved it. It was one of the most validating books I have read in a long time. I felt really, really seen by Carrie Goldberg and I wish I was aware of her existence years ago, when I had first become a victim of sexual harassment, assault and abuse.

    I learned so much from this book. Goldberg is a victim rights lawyer, specifically for victims of any kind of sexual violation. There were so many laws I read about that I, as well as most people, wasn't even aware were in existence, both laws that need to be removed and changed through legislation and laws that can actually help you win your case if you ever find yourself to be a victim.

    This book made me want to become a lawyer, because Carrie Goldberg is exactly the type of lawyer I want to be. She is smart, angry, emotional, takes no bullshit, loves her clients and is their fierce advocate. She made me realize how empowering law and advocacy can be. Even if you don't win every case, your advocacy still makes an impact. Her clients would come to her dejected, having lost all hope, confidence and joy. By the end, they turned into empowered people who were strong and fighters and were able to get their lives back.

    We aren't taught in regular school how to advocate for and protect ourselves. We aren't taught about the laws that govern society and how they can help our hinder us. We aren't taught how to fight for our lives and know more than the bully that is trying to destroy us. With knowledge of all of this comes power, and that is what I want to do for others as a lawyer. Not only do I want to fight for them, I want to teach them how to fight for themselves. I want to fight for myself.

    As a survivor, I am validated and empowered. I am fired up and will work my ass off to get into law school and use my law degree to change the world, whether that be through political work, policy, advocacy, something else, or some combination of these things.

    Carrie Goldberg...thank you.

    I finished the book in tears. Get this book and read it!

    When I was younger, I never used the word evil. The phrase was clearly outdated and judgmental. People were generally well meaning, if wrong. Sometimes they would hurt others, true, but it was either a misunderstanding or in horrible situations, no doubt something that happened in childhood.

    I'm older now but I use the term evil. For some acts there is no other word.

    Carrie Goldberg and her law firm specialize in helping victim's of revenge porn and online blackmail and extortion. And she and her team are doing God's work. They are helping the most vulnerable.

    There are books which shift our paradigm on certain issues. This book is that type for me.

    Carrie Goldberg's book is a powerful, must-read. Sharing her intimate and thoughtful insight into the world of revenge porn, sexual abuse/assault and privacy violation is inspiring. I hope this book serves as a key reminder to all survivors -- and as Goldberg reminds us -- "even if you don't know what to call [what happened to you]'-- that you're a survivor and a warrior.

    The work that Goldberg's law firm is doing is life-changing and life-saving. As this book details the very real legal cases in assault, blackmail, and extortion, I hope it arms other survivors with courage, confidence and most importantly hope.

    I really want to give this book five stars, but the persistent use of "psycho" and crazy" to describe terrible, violent men was a little hard to overlook as someone who is trying to work on improving my language so as not to further stigmatize the mentally ill. The book is a vitally important one, though, as Goldberg writes clearly and passionately about the current legal landscape that sets up women to be victimized and revictimized by cyberstalkers, trolls, and plain old jerks.

The book is a vitally important one, though, as Goldberg writes clearly and passionately about the current legal landscape that sets up women to be victimized and revictimized by cyberstalkers, trolls, and plain old jerks. The resource list in the back should prove invaluable to anyone who is experiencing these kinds of problems, too.

    I heard about Carrie Goldberg’s new book, Nobody’s Victim, from The Cut’s podcast, The Cut on Tuesdays. From the moment she started talking, I was incredibly intrigued.

    I heard about Carrie Goldberg’s new book, Nobody’s Victim, from The Cut’s podcast, The Cut on Tuesdays. From the moment she started talking, I was incredibly intrigued. I knew I had to get my hands on this book. The book did not disappoint. Carrie Goldberg is a lawyer who specializes in cases of harassment, revenge porn, sexual violence, and much more. This book is part call to arms, part manifesto, part resource guide for women. Carrie tells the stories of a number of her clients, stringing together a narrative of how crimes against women that are facilitated via the internet are not taken seriously and the unwillingness of law enforcement and the platforms where it takes place to take it seriously. This book is the story of how one woman took her personal hell and turned it into a revolution. As a woman living in the age of social media and online dating, I found this book to be incredibly poignant.

    Don't get bitter get better!

    For me this showed just how damaging releasing trust into the world can become and how to fight fire with fire to get revenge.

    Sure many of these relationships were quickly consumed.

    The relationships were often centered upon sexual abuse in general, sexual photos placed online w/o consent, and sexual abuse cases.

    Sure many of these relationships were quickly consumed.

    The relationships were often centered upon sexual abuse in general, sexual photos placed online w/o consent, and sexual abuse cases.

    As a survivor of abuse while I applaud the author for taking these cases to get relief for clients, I'm dismayed at the anger portrayed throughout the book, and feel there is some residual tension there from her own past experiences which may not have been fully processed.

    Believe me having been left bankrupt, homeless w three kids, having no income to support them as child support was in 15k arrears I can relate to the pain.

    What I'm afraid of is the notion that you can just be BOLD and not follow the law.

    It's not about revenge as it's about ending the injustices against women.

    I hope this book will if nothing else create discussion about the loopholes that exists especially with regard to sexting and utilization of sexual photos and or videos without consent online.
