`Vivid [and] fascinating' * Guardian * `[Poundstone's] underlying argument is both valid and vital. As he notes in his prologue, "the most important outguessing machine is the one known as Big Data". Shannon's mind-reading technology has become unavoidable and ubiquitous' * New Scientist * 'Poundstone calls on a fascinating array of examples to demonstrate his point. But be warned: these insights may not help much longer now that Poundstone has blabbed them. So read it quick' (5/5 Stars) * BBC Focus * 'Poundstone is a smart thinker, a deft writer and a spinner of engaging tales... enjoyable and original' -- Tim Harford `Highly entertaining... brilliant' * E&T magazine * 'Ingenious... a delightful addition to the everything-you-thought-you-knew-is-wrong genre.' * Kirkus Reviews * 'Intriguing and immensely useful.' * Publishers Weekly * 'Fascinating... it's all gold-dust... this could save you real money' * The Bookbag *
