Críticas:

""Dragnet Nation" is an impressive picture of the new world of electronic surveillance--from Google to the NSA. Julia Angwin's command of the technology is sure, her writing is clear, and her arguments are compelling. This is an authoritative account of why we should care about privacy and how we can protect ourselves."--Bruce Schneier, author of "Liars and Outliers: Enabling the Trust That Society Needs to Thrive"

"In this thought-provoking, highly accessible exploration of the issues around personal data-gathering, Julia Angwin provides a startling account of how we're all being tracked, watched, studied, and sorted. Her own (often very funny) attempts to maintain her online privacy demonstrate the ubiquity of the dragnet--and the near impossibility of evading it. I'll never use Google in the same way again."--Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of "Happier at Home" and "The Happiness Project"

"Angwin elegantly chronicles this tragedy of the digital commons at the level of policy and our individual civil liberties..."Dragnet Nation" really kicks in--and becomes a blast to read--when she fights back...If enough people follow Angwin's lead, new networks of computer users might manage to open up ever larger holes in the dragnet world."--"Bookforum"

"Entertaining... Pacy and eye-opening."--"The Financial Times "

"A new hot-button issue that touches both politics and business is privacy, and the erosion of privacy is examined in Dragnet Nation."--"Publishers Weekly" (Top 10 Business & Economics Books)

"Fascinating ... Angwin, who spent years covering privacy issues for the" Wall Street Journal," draws on conversations with researchers, hackers and IT experts, surveying the modern dragnet tracking made possible by massive computing power, smaller devices and cheap storage of data...A solid work for both privacy freaks and anyone seeking tips on such matters as how to strengthen passwords."--"Kirkus Reviews"

I'll never use Google in the same way again."--Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of "Happier at Home" and "The Happiness Project"

"Julia Angwin's pathbreaking reporting for the "Wall Street Journal" about online tracking changed the privacy debate. Her new book represents another leap forward: by showing how difficult it was to protect her own privacy and vividly describing the social and personal costs, Angwin offers both a wakeup call and a thoughtful manifesto for reform. This is a meticulously documented and gripping narrative about why privacy matters and what we can do abou

Reseña del editor:


An inside look at who's watching you, what they know and why it matters. We are being watched.

We see online ads from websites we've visited, long after we've moved on to other interests. Our smartphones and cars transmit our location, enabling us to know what's in the neighborhood but also enabling others to track us. And the federal government, we recently learned, has been conducting a massive data-gathering surveillance operation across the Internet and on our phone lines.

In Dragnet Nation, award-winning investigative journalist Julia Angwin reports from the front lines of America's surveillance economy, offering a revelatory and unsettling look at how the government, private companies, and even criminals use technology to indiscriminately sweep up vast amounts of our personal data. In a world where we can be watched in our own homes, where we can no longer keep secrets, and where we can be impersonated, financially manipulated, or even placed in a police lineup, Angwin argues that the greatest long-term danger is that we start to internalize the surveillance and censor our words and thoughts, until we lose the very freedom that makes us unique individuals. Appalled at such a prospect, Angwin conducts a series of experiments to try to protect herself, ranging from quitting Google to carrying a "burner" phone, showing how difficult it is for an average citizen to resist the dragnets' reach.

Her book is a cautionary tale for all of us, with profound implications for our values, our society, and our very selves.
