LOVE the Evanovich humor; all of it. Her characters will either entertain you or you'll think they're stupid! I LOVE the characters.
A book with many twists!
I found this in a charity shop and wondered how it ended up there. I mean, it was only published last year, came from a reputable academic press and discussed something that's particularly important to our lives today. Then I read it. There's not anything wrong with this book per se. As an overview of privacy and of the possible ramifications of technology on our privacy, it's fine. But it seems to never really become much more than an overview. The authors are unquestionably knowledgeable about the subject of privacy, and about how communication and browsing behaviour on the Internet affect personal (and community) privacy - but it seems that they are hamstrung by the book's attempt to appeal to as wide an audience as possible. The chapters on case-studies of other nations' handling of the Net seem particularly light-on, in my view. There's some interesting thoughts provoked by this book; the exploration of Moore's Law and the ramifications on personal surveillance, and the possible ways of ensuring government transparency on surveillance are discussion-starters. But on the whole, the book left me feeling a little unsatisfied. That said, I suppose this is a rapidly moving area; perhaps this work would be better served in an online, easily-updated format? It's funny - something printed last year can already seem out of date, so quickly are privacy and censorship debates moving.
