Valuable information - but intensely boring
The authors are big shots at Google, so their knowledge and opinions about the effects of connectedness on privacy and security and how technology is rapidly changing the world is valuable. However, they make the same points over and over. If a Readers Digest condensed version comes out, it may be worth reading, but this sucker needed very much to be condensed.Was this review helpful?

Interesting, current and predictive of what is in store for us.
Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen present a comprehensive, account of how the world will become increasingly connected, more subject to having our secrets revealed, and our lives on display for anyone to access, without our permission, or even knowledge of same. All information will be ultimately available to anyone about everything and everybody. And there's not much one can do about it. Bank accounts will be increasingly vulnerable to unauthorized entry, as well as any personal data we may have shared from years ago as reckless teenagers through existing social media. Any safeguards will be compromised by adept hackers.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
From the author's perspective, that's the way it is, get used to it. I daresay I'm glad I won't be around for same. And there's security in that.
