Reviews

"'I Have Nothing to Hide' is a sweeping, yet direct and admirably up-to-date book on one of the most important topics of our time, and Boghosian's effort to keep these pivotal matters on the national agenda is a praiseworthy, if all-too-often unappreciated, task . . . . Boghosian's work is a clear call to re-embrace our privacy and value its place both in our lives as individuals and in a free society."
-Los Angeles Review of Books

"Brings the big data problem down to earth with practical talk and anecdotes for citizens and policymakers."
-FTCWatch

"Blatant misinformation can be easy to spot and debunk. What Heidi Boghosian dispels here are more insidious and more important: the core myths regarding data and privacy that quietly coalesce into conventional wisdoms. By unpacking the most pervasive and pernicious misconceptions, Boghosian leaves readers better informed about the modern surveillance state and better equipped to do something about it."
-Nathan Fuller, director, Courage Foundation

"The first time I opened this book, I audibly squealed in delight. The persistent privacy myths that Boghosian exposes are the torment of every privacy advocate's existence. She eviscerates each one with style. Melding important tech and policy history with personal stories and current events, this book is for anyone who wants to lay to rest the most persistent and damaging myth: that we should give up on our privacy altogether."
-Alison Macrina, director, Library Freedom Project

"Heidi Boghosian's book clearly and concisely tears down the lies we tell ourselves when it comes to the dark underbelly of technology as it relates to surveillance. Privacy is a right, and we need leaders like Heidi to tell us how to defend it from entities that purport to protect and serve us."
-Rachel A. Pickens, executive director, National Police Accountability Project
