“Schneier did not need the Snowden revelations, as important as they are, to understand the growing threat to personal privacy worldwide from government and corporate surveillance—he’s been raising the alarm for nearly two decades. But this important book does more than detail the threat; it tells the average low-tech citizen what steps he or she can take to limit surveillance and thus fight those who are seeking to strip privacy from all of us.”

— Seymour M. Hersh, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author of Chain of Command 


  • “The public conversation about surveillance in the digital age would be a good deal more intelligent if we all read Bruce Schneier first.”

    — Malcolm Gladwell, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Blink
  • “Thought provoking, absorbing, and comprehensive.”

    — Forbes
  • “Lucid and compelling.”

    — Washington Post
  • “Mr. Schneier is as knowledgeable as it gets…Schneier’s use of concrete examples of bad behavior with data will make even skeptics queasy and potentially push the already paranoid over the edge. Mr. Schneier writes clearly and simply about a complex subject.”

    — New York Times
  • “Lucid and fast paced…Schneier describes with dismay the erosion of privacy, then lays out a strategy for turning the tide.”

    — Boston Globe
  • “Serves as both a primer to protecting your personal privacy and a guide to reforming business and government surveillance practices.”

    — Barnes&
  • “An accessible, detailed look at a disturbing aspect of contemporary life.”

    — Kirkus Reviews
  • “Schneier exposes the many and surprising ways governments and corporations monitor all of us, providing a must-read User’s Guide to Life in the Data Age. His recommendations for change should be part of a much-needed public debate.”

    — Richard A. Clarke, former chief counterterrorism adviser on the National Security Council under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush, and author of Cyber War
  • “Dan John Miller narrates this mind-blowing exposé with an engaging tone.”
