'Privacy is Power' definitely helped me to strengthen my beliefs regarding privacy and personal data I know so much than I did having read the book I love the passion behind the pragmatism Carissa's writing is decisive compelling and judgemental teetering on the edge of becoming dogmatic The opening chapters and the finale score 55 from me I found some of the chapters in between to be heavy going but it was definitely worth perseveringThis book is for people of all ages even though The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is uoted as a letter from our ancestors some readers were alive then and others may have been involved in the processIf you seek an extremely well informed and comprehensive resume of the current risks to society and to individuals of surveillance capitalism this book is most definitely for you

Enjoyed the book which is a must read for digital citizens it provides a passionate call to action on the impact of technology on our #privacy as part of the data economy A wealth of privacy examples and it makes a strong case for putting the control of data back in the hands of individuals with opt in consent for its useA number of lessons from the book include a powerful reminder that we need privacy to be autonomous individuals to explore new ideas to make up our own minds and and for democracies to function It makes the case that privacy is collective; as we are all connected then having access to my personal data can also reveal and be used to infer about my connections Research shows people behave differently when being watched tracked and less likely to engage with it especially when creepy Privacy innovation provides a potential to enable data analysis use while minimising privacy riskThe book contains a practical how to guide on how we can protect our privacy although some are radical minimise footprint with paper and offline & somewhat controversial eg choose dumb devices over smart devicesThe book is primarily aimed at citizens and I would like to have seen a stronger case made for good tech providers to encourage enlightened organisations to offer #privacy and differentiate with a ‘trusted’ customer experience

Ever wondered how FB knew which adverts to ping your way or how well your smart TV seemed to know just what film you might like for the mood you may be in If you have ever had a conversation one day and seen the same topic appear in your social feed then this book will enlighten you This is a comprehensive and well argued look at how big companies want to own your soul It's easy to think how the internet and technology is enhancing our lives and the author discusses how they do just that but at a cost to our privacy If our minds had a key would you hand it over to a complete stranger and invite them to open it up No But that's what we're doing and the author shows us how we are doing it and often unwittingly This isn't a book that says don't use the internet or social media far from it It's a book that will educate to what's being recorded when why and how From there it's up to us whether we choose to continue as we have been or adapt Highly recommended
