Interesting book

If you follow or work with Privacy issues you may find the following book interesting: The Glass Consumer: Life in a Surveillance Society by Susanne Lace, includes case studies on the UK's National Health Service and the financial services sector. (Published by The Policy Press)

We are all 'glass consumers'. Organisations know so much about us, they can almost see through us. Governments and businesses collect and process our personal information on a massive scale. Everything we do, and everywhere we go, leaves a trail. But is this in our interests?
