あらすじ・解説

Brought to you by Penguin. 

As the data economy grows in power, Carissa Véliz exposes how our privacy is eroded by big tech and governments, why that matters and what we can do about it. 

The moment you check your phone in the morning you are giving away your data. Before you've even switched off your alarm, a whole host of organisations have been alerted to when you woke up, where you slept and with whom. As you check the weather, scroll through your 'suggested friends' on Facebook, you continually compromise your privacy. 

Without your permission, or even your awareness, tech companies are harvesting your information, your location, your likes and your habits and sharing it amongst themselves. They're not just selling your data. They're selling the power to influence you. Even when you've explicitly asked them not to. And it's not just you. It's all your contacts too. 

Digital technology is stealing our personal data and with it our power to make free choices. To reclaim that power and democracy, we must protect our privacy.  

What can we do? So much is at stake. Our phones, our TVs, even our washing machines are spies in our own homes. We need new regulation. We need to pressure policy-makers for red lines on the data economy. And we need to stop sharing and to adopt privacy-friendly alternatives to Google, Facebook and other online platforms.

Short, terrifying, practical: Privacy Is Power highlights the implications of our laid-back attitude to data and sets out how we can take back control. 

If you liked The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, you'll love Privacy Is Power because it provides a philosophical perspective on the politics of privacy and it offers a very practical outlook, both for policymakers and ordinary citizens.

Exhausting, unfortunately

I'm a bit hesitant on how to rate this title, as I had to stop after the first chapter. It's not for me. If you are looking to be convinced that the privacy problem is big, this book will do that. If you are like me, and are already concerned and is looking for a bit of positivity hopeful solutions, showcasing strides made, know that it is extremely focused on convincing you that the problem is great and the author is very good at triggering your stress levels further about the problem, which was personally not what I needed at this time.

I'm a bit I picked up this book after hearing the author on The Economist Radio, which offered an interesting account on the difficulties of what organisation should mandate data laws in a global economy.

While I am deeply concerned about privacy, and think Facebook is a company with an awful ethic etc, I am more of a person that looks at holistic, constructive solutions to problems and I have a hard time with one-sided rhethoric, and prefer when a problem is viewed from many angles so that I can fully understand where things are coming from. I picked up this book to find solutions to how we can store data securely, but the intro chapter was so anxiety-inducing, listing problem after problem and painting a bleak future and using rhethoric that is extremely problem-oriented and slides into some, in my opinion, strained examples with little nuance. It is written in a very fear-inducing preaching-to-the-converted style (that I often find in American books of this category) and even though I am on the side of the author, this honestly made me less excited about solving the privacy problem, if I'm being honest.

After 25 minutes of having my heart pound at the dystopian vision painted (even though I largely agree with it), I eventually skipped to the end of the intro chapter and after being promised that "the following three chapters do not paint a pretty picture" I decided that this book is not for me.

Eye opening

Even though I have been researching the topic and considering my level of knowledge "above average" regarding the field, I have discovered new examples, point of views and facts about it.

It builds and sums the topic up fantastically, easy to follow and understand for everybody.

The Narration is great as well.

This is an easy recommendation.

Brilliant and Relevant to us all

Incredibly well written, very entertaining and extremely important in this day and age. We are living in the wild west of digital era and we don’t even realize it. Its not a technical book, but it is very enlightening of what big tech companies and governments are doing with our data and the dangers it entails. It also gives practical advice on how we can regain control over our data and reclaim our privacy for the benefit of individuals, democracy and society as a whole.

for privacy pros and enthusiasts alike

It was a truly interesting read from Carissa!
It is never too technical and have sound reasoning, giving life-like examples.
If it sounds too pessimistic, make sure to hold on until the end, where you get really useful tips and recommendations for further reading.

I can recommend it wholeheartedly for fellow legal professionals or for people interested in the current state of privacy.

light on details

The What To Do details are lacking. This book does a reasonable job explaining how your privacy is being highlighted but some very important issues are passed over. The concept of phone telemetry should have been explained in detail. Telemetry relates to both Google and Apple. Saying that people should not buy Androids could be bad advice. Apple violates your privacy also. At a minimum it should have been pointed out that each Android is different and that you can now purchase de-googled Androids. Linux phones are available as well. Also, I would have talked about Linux computers that are now much more user friendly.

Appealing to emotions instead of sense

While she has a point, the author is mostly appealing to emotions and presents this quite one-sided.

Excellent

Fascinating book. Veliz is very knowledgeable about the subject and writes in an engaging style. The book is quite disturbing at times and shows how much of what is wrong with the world today is due to our lack of privacy. Thankfully, it also strikes a more positive note by providing practical steps we can take to improve the situation. Absolutely essential reading.

Privacy matters

That narrator was good. but the story too important to ignore. Books similar to this, and taking the actions described will be one of the few ways to change the course we are on.

Very insightful read!

The message is not alarmist by any stretch. Its informative and factual.

I love how she rounds it all off by giving very practical everyday tips on how to take back our privacy rights... One cookie consent banner at a time😏

Left-wing bias

I got about half way through before giving up.

From the start, big tech are the bad guys which I didn't need any persuading of. The author states that the Russians used big tech to get Trump elected. They did the same with Brexit. Then she cites a certain brave journalist who works for the Observer for exposing the links to Russia. Then she complains that, at the time of writing, this journalist was being sued for libel as a way of suppressing her courageous work.

Personally I am tired of hearing about Trump, Brexit and Russian collusion. The author is right to call out the power of big tech to influence elections and the threat that this poses to democracy. Unfortunately she neglects to consider that everyone is up to it and always has been. They were long before the internet was even invented. Why does she think that certain people wanted to own newspapers? Why did politicians court newspaper owners?

This book gives you the impression that this corruption of democracy is a new thing and she subtracts credibility from her own argument by displaying her own personal biases. The author cherry-picks 'facts' to support it but her facts aren't facts at all. The US Attorney General reported to Congress that the Mueller Report found "no evidence of collusion". This happened in 2019 but this book, released in 2020 implies otherwise. Similarly the UK's National Crime Agency found "no evidence" of crimes by the Brexit campaign. The brave journalist who made the allegations was indeed sued for libel. She was ordered to pay £62,000 in damages.

To sum up, the author warns that big-tech uses our data to profile us and to curate news content to the extent that two people do not experience the same reality. She seems oblivious to the possibility that her own online research and worldview could have been skewed by those same forces.

This is really an unforced error. The author didn't need to venture into partisan politics. She chose to and then presented as facts, matters that were disproved in courts of law.

I lost confidence in the author and the quality of her research.

Fantastic - everyone should read this book

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and I hope many others will do so too. In my view, it grips the reader from the beginning and raises a number of very valid concerns which should not be overlooked.

Accessible and Compelling

An excellent, engaging, enjoyable and compelling discussion of the risks associated with 'big data' collected by social media companies in particular. The book builds of Zuboff's ideas relating to 'surveillance capitalism' but is more accessible and easier to digest, as well as offering more practical prescriptions about how we, at individual, national and societal level, might take back control of our own data to mitigate the dystopian risks relating to surveillance capitalism.

A must read book!

This a super overview of the data economy and the threat it poses to privacy. It’s wonderfully put together, making the topic relatable while empowering the listener with both knowledge and the ability to take practical action. Highly recommend!
