Product Details


Winner of the Lysander Spooner Award for Advancing the Literature of Liberty
“This is the first, and maybe the loudest, popular book on a crucial technology of our times; a masterpiece of technocriticism.”—from the foreword by bestselling author Bruce Sterling
“One of the best privacy books in many years… The privacy movement needs a book. I nominate Spychips.”—Marc Rotenberg, Executive Director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC)
“The book makes a very persuasive case that some of America’s biggest companies want to embed tracking technology into virtually everything we own, and then study our usage patterns 24 hours a day. It’s a truly creepy book and well worth reading.”—Hiawatha Bray, The Boston Globe
“Provocative… Albrecht and McIntyre have a knack for finding information, and developing sources that make them the envy of investigative reporters.”—Chicago Sun-Times

“Paints a 1984-ish picture of how corporations would like to use RFID tags to keep tabs on you.”—The Associated Press
“A chilling story about an emerging future in which spychips run amok as Big Brother and Big Shopkeeper invade our privacy in unprecedented ways.”—Chicago Tribune
