"If you listen to this audiobook on a smartphone, consider yourself under government surveillance. That's because, as the author explains, corporate and government interests have access to your GPS tracking devices, as well as your Instagram, Twitter, and other social media accounts (not to mention every audio bookmark you make in your Audible account). Dan John Miller narrates this mind-blowing exposŽ with an engaging tone, delivering the author's message that government spying is simplified now that we "voluntarily" provide personal information in exchange for so-called "free" services like Gmail and Facebook. Ironically, the dehumanizing effect of surveillance--billed as a protection against terrorism--appears to have little to do with preserving security. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
