A Timely Book For Troubled Times
, January 21, 2005
No Place To Hide is a crucial and essential book to read for an eye opening factual account of data collection and privacy issues all Americans face. Mr. O'Harrow has written a book with meticulous attention to details, facts and reveals the main players involved with the collection of data of every aspect of daily American lives and how that data is being supplied to any government agency that cares to purchase it.
O'Harrow exposes the serious issue of private data technology companies and their marriage to government agencies, a marriage that is thriving while unchecked and ungoverned by guidelines or laws to protect every American's basic right to Privacy.
This book leads one to formulate the question "Is giving up my basic rights to privacy and living in a unrestricted, constantly growing complex of surveillance, data collection and selling of that data to any government agency going to make my life a more secure and safe one?
No Place To Hide is a concise and frighteningly revealing book that all Americans should read. O'Harrow arms us with an inside look at a growing partnership between private industry and government that needs to be controlled. A book that should remind all American's that we do have a voice in our Government and that we have serious Privacy and Civil Liberty issues at hand that we need to address as a nation.
