Why Privacy Matters book cover
Added March 9, 2022

This is a book about what privacy is and why it matters. Governments and companies keep telling us that Privacy is Dead, but they are wrong. Privacy is about more than just whether our information is collected. It's about what we do with that information. And in our modern society, that's pretty much everything we do, from GPS mapping to texting to voting to treating disease. We need to realize that privacy is up for grabs, and we need to craft rules to protect ourhard-won, but fragile human values like identity, freedom, consumer protection, and trust. Author Neil Richards shows what privacy is, why privacy matters, and how we can build a better digital future together.
