This is a fairly alarmist book and focuses far more attention to government surveillance (Big Brother) over the more covert forms such as customer tracking (also known as Little Brother). I'd suggest reading this alongside the last third of Sherry Turkle's Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age where she talks about the effects of surveillance on mental health and intellectual freedom.
