"The Internet is powerful, but it is not safe. As "smart" devices proliferate the risks will get worse, unless we act now. From driverless cars to smart thermostats, from autonomous stock-trading systems to drones equipped with their own behavioral algorithms, the Internet now has direct effects on the physical world. While this computerized future, often called the Internet of Things, carries enormous potential, best-selling author Bruce Schneier argues that catastrophe awaits in its new vulnerabilities and dangers. Forget data theft: cutting-edge digital attackers can now literally crash your car, pacemaker, and home security system, as well as everyone else's. In Click Here to Kill Everybody, Schneier explores the risks and security implications of our new, hyper-connected era, and lays out common-sense policies that will allow us to enjoy the benefits of this omnipotent age without falling prey to the consequences of its insecurity. From principles for a more resilient Internet of Things to a recipe for sane government oversight, Schneier's vision is required reading for anyone invested in human flourishing"-- Provided by publisher.

Data and Goliath re-edition more than new stuff. Still very generic, with some interesting suggestions and guidelines for the future.

This is an introduction to computer security that we all should read. He says he has made it simple so it can be understood, but he hopes readers will make use of the notes and references provided to do further research.

I thought this was an interesting book, albeit a bit jargony and repetitive. However, it does make you stop to wonder if you freezer is currently communicating with your spouse about how much ice cream you've been eating. And I am still waiting, albeit more impatiently, for the delivery of pizza over the Internet by some device.

Some good stuff, but somewhat vanilla presentation - - Bruce is far too gullible where Rea Political Theater is concerned - - some of those stooges he quotes can be quite annoying.
