So, if I am to take seriously the suggestions in this book, I shouldn't be telling Goodreads that I've read it. A provocative, suggestive answer to the question of what Big Data is doing with our data. An excellent set of points, even if the presentation is somewhat paranoid. Serious food for thought that reinforces my thinking that we simply haven't been careful enough.

2.5 stars. I wonder if the authors had the ambition for this to be a manifesto, but the writing was not strong enough. For the majority of the book I just kept thinking, "Don't give them any ideas!" as they kept listing ways that huge companies could abuse their data-gathering powers.

Almost like reading science fiction. The author imagined big data to be too powerful. Wild imagination and almost no data/research to back up. The book is also super repetitive.
