Somewhere in D.C., a vast computer complex churns through quintillions of data bytes about every American, living or dead. And one of them is you!

In this book, you'll learn about real, little-known secret programs run by both the public and private sectors. And once you're armed with that knowledge, you'll learn practical steps you can—and must—take to keep your private life private and lose Big Brother for good!
