Review

"The public conversation about surveillance in the digital age would be a good deal more intelligent if we all read Bruce Schneier first." -- Malcolm Gladwell "Bruce Schneier has written a hugely insightful and important book about how big data and its cousin, mass surveillance, affect our lives, and what to do about it. In characteristic fashion, Schneier takes very complex and varied information and ideas and makes them vivid, accessible, and compelling." -- Jack Goldsmith, former head of the Office of Legal Counsel of the Department of Justice under George W. Bush "Schneier did not need the Snowden revelations, as important as they are, to understand the growing threat to personal privacy worldwide from government and corporate surveillance-he's been raising the alarm for nearly two decades. But this important book does more than detail the threat; it tells the average low-tech citizen what steps he or she can take to limit surveillance, and thus fight those are seeking to strip privacy from all of us." -- Seymour M. Hersh, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist "A pithy, pointed, and highly readable explanation of what we know in the wake of the Snowden revelations, with practical steps that ordinary people can take if they want to do something about the threats to privacy and liberty posed not only by the government but by the Big Data industry." -- Neal Stephenson, author of Reamde "Schneier exposes the many and surprising ways governments and corporations monitor all of us, providing a must-read Users Guide to life in the Data Age. His recommendations for change should be part of a much needed public debate." -- Richard A. Clarke, former chief counter-terrorism adviser on the National Security Council under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, and author of Cyber War "As it becomes increasingly clear that surveillance has surpassed anything that Orwell imagined, we need a guide to how and why we're being snooped and what we can do about it. Bruce Schneier is that guide-step by step he outlines the various ways we are being monitored, and after scaring the pants off us, he tells us how to fight back." -- Steven Levy, editor-in-chief of Backchannel and author of Crypto and Hackers "A judicious and incisive analysis of one of the most pressing new issues of our time, written by a true expert." --Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of The Better Angels of Our Nature

From the Inside Flap

You are under surveillance right now.

Your cell phone provider tracks your location and knows who's with you. Your online and in-store purchasing patterns are recorded, and reveal if you're unemployed, sick, or pregnant. Your e-mails and texts expose your intimate and casual friends. Google knows what you're thinking because it saves your private searches. Facebook can determine your sexual orientation without you ever mentioning it.

The powers that surveil us do more than simply store this information. Corporations use surveillance to manipulate not only the news articles and advertisements we each see, but also the prices we're offered. Governments use surveillance to discriminate, censor, chill free speech, and put people in danger worldwide. And both sides share this information with each other or, even worse, lose it to cybercriminals in huge data breaches.

Much of this is voluntary: we cooperate with corporate surveillance because it promises us convenience, and we submit to government surveillance because it promises us protection. The result is a mass surveillance society of our own making. But have we given up more than we've gained? In Data and Goliath, security expert Bruce Schneier offers another path, one that values both security and privacy. He shows us exactly what we can do to reform our government surveillance programs and shake up surveillance-based business models, while also providing tips for you to protect your privacy every day. You'll never look at your phone, your computer, your credit cards, or even your car in the same way again.
