"SuperVision does an excellent job of both accentuating how surveillance now penetrates almost every sphere of our existence and raising some of the most pressing social and political questions of our age."
--Kevin Haggerty, University of Alberta
"John Gilliom and Torin Monahan unveil the purposes and implications of the surveillance practices embedded in the technologies we have come to take for granted and increasingly rely upon in our daily lives. Their examination of the evolution and social meaning of surveillance in a range of contexts is important reading and their 'ten big ideas' provide a set of valuable principles that readers can use intelligently in traversing their everyday lives."

Boy was I wrong.
This book is interesting, stimulating, and, above all, accessible to everyone who reads it. Gilliom and Monahan are meticulous in their dedication to being readable and it shows with their straightforward structure that isn't trying to hide anything from you.
It's a slick design with plenty of bullet points and text boxes to break up the usual page to page monotony without leaving out important details. Instead of "just another textbook" SuperVision reads like a bestseller meant for the general public.
I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn more about how their day to day life is scrutinized by major companies and its implications for you and me. I'm a student already overloaded with reading and this was an enjoyable book to read.
