From the Publisher"Mr. O'Harrow provides in these pages an authoritative and vivid account of the emergence of a 'security-industrial complex' and the far-reaching consequences for ordinary Americans...an alarming vision of the future uncannily reminiscent of the world imagined by Orwell in 1984."
— Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
"Today, we are constantly tagged, monitored, studied, sorted and tracked by a vast array of institutions and organizations — private and public. As Robert O'Harrow, Jr., details in No Place to Hide, it is worse than we could ever have imagined. In this revealing book, O'Harrow makes clear that Americans need to think seriously about these issues now — before it is too late for us to decide that we care."
— The Washington Post
"No Place to Hide might just do for privacy protection what Rachel Carson's Silent Spring did for environmental protection. [O'Harrow's] is the work of a careful, thorough, enterprising reporter."
— William Safire, The New York Times Book Review
Kirkus Reviews From Starbucks to the subway to the sidewalk, you are being watched....O'Harrow voices a clear concern over the ethics of such snooping...persuasively delineating how that information is abused and how unavoidable mistakes have profound consequences. A skillful chart of a surveillance society out of control.
