RFID, which stands for Radio Frequency IDentification, is a technology that uses computer chips smaller than a grain of sand to track items from a distance. And as this mind-blowing book explains, plans and efforts are being made now by global corporations and the U.S government to turn this advanced technology, these spychips, into a way to track our daily activities-and keep us all on Big Brother's short leash. Compiling massive amounts of research with firsthand knowledge, Spychips explains RFID technology and reveals the history and future of the master planners' strategies to imbed these trackers on everything-from postage stamps to shoes to people themselves-and spy on Americans without our knowledge or consent. It also urgently encourages consumers to take action now-to protect their privacy and civil liberties before it's too late.

About the Author:

Dr. Katherine Albrecht is the founder and director of CASPIAN, an international consumer group. Dubbed the "Erin Brockovich" of RFID by Wired magazine, she is one of the leading voices for privacy in today's fast-changing, high-tech world. Katherine holds a doctorate in education from Harvard University.

Liz McIntyre is an award-winning investigative writer with a flair for exposing corporate shenanigans and bureaucratic misdeeds. She serves as CASPIAN's communications director and has been the master strategist for many of the organization's most successful media campaigns.

Review:

Winner of the Lysander Spooner Award for Advancing the Literature of Liberty
 
"This is the first, and maybe the loudest, popular book on a crucial technology of our times; a masterpiece of technocriticism.”—from the foreword by bestselling author Bruce Sterling
 
"One of the best privacy books in many years... The privacy movement needs a book. I nominate Spychips."—Marc Rotenberg, Executive Director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC)
 
"The book makes a very persuasive case that some of America's biggest companies want to embed tracking technology into virtually everything we own, and then study our usage patterns 24 hours a day. It's a truly creepy book and well worth reading."—Hiawatha Bray, The Boston Globe
 
"Provocative... Albrecht and McIntyre have a knack for finding information, and developing sources that make them the envy of investigative reporters."—Chicago Sun-Times

"Paints a 1984-ish picture of how corporations would like to use RFID tags to keep tabs on you."—The Associated Press
 
"A chilling story about an emerging future in which spychips run amok as Big Brother and Big Shopkeeper invade our privacy in unprecedented ways.”—Chicago Tribune
