This is a book about the impact of digital technologies on statistical forecasting. It is quite general in scope and aimed largely at the lay reader. It contains some insights but the main points are often quite simple: e.g. data correlations can have surprising results, large companies such as Google hold lots of data and this makes them powerful, data retention has its dangers etc... The main point of the book, that improved data collection will impact greatly on society is well presented and the book overall is a worthy and easy read.
