Alert about What Google and Facebook really do Zuboff explains the threats these two giants can do to us. Its about controlling us and being able to predict how we think. But the 525 page book could be condensed into half, because I think many of the explainations get repeated but in a more “wordy” explaination. After 300 pages I lost interest in what she had to convey.
