    Every day, we produce loads of data about ourselves simply by living in the modern world: we click web pages, flip channels, and shop with credit cards. Now, in one of the greatest undertakings of the 21st century, a savvy group of mathematicians and computer scientists is beginning to sift through this data to profile us as workers, shoppers, patients, voters, potential terrorists, even lovers. Their goal? To manipulate our behavior.

    Stephen says: "Good but not the best of the genre"
    "Gosh golly gee whiz"
    Overall

    The topic has great potential and is one I'm driven to learn more about. However, this audible book does not deliver. It is written & read with a gee whiz attitude of someone's grandpa who has not been fully cognizant of the role of technology in culture for decades. It treats the listener as though they are only capable of understanding concepts at the 6th grade level. I stopped listening about halfway through and learned just next to nil.
