The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power Hardcover \ Paperback

Author : Shoshana Zuboff Pages : 704 pages Publisher : Profile Books Language : ISBN-10 : 9781781256848 ISBN-13 : 9781781256848 I will make a guarantee: Assuming we survive to tell the tale, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism has a high probability of joining the likes Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations and Max Weber's Economy and Society as defining social-economics texts of modern times. It is not a 'quick read;' it is to be savored and re-read and discussed with colleagues and friends. No zippy one-liners from


me, except to almost literally beg you to read/ingest this book -Tom Peters author of In Search of ExcellenceSociety is at a turning point. The heady optimism that accompanied the advent of the Internet is gone replaced by a deep unease. Technologies that were meant to liberate us have exacerbated social inequalities and stoked explosive political climates across the world. Tech companies gather our information online and sell it to the highest bidder, whether government or retailer. In this world of surveillance capitalism, profit depends not only on predicting our behaviour but modifying it too.
