"Shadbolt and O'Hara have kick-started a new debate about what we mean by privacy." * The Sunday Times *
"Timely and balanced, their book The Spy in the Coffee Machine is a scary treatise about the way technology has eroded privacy and continues to do so ... The chief lesson of this excellent and potent short book is that we have to learn how to live with these actualities." * New Scientist *
"Though the questions around CCTV, blogs and the internet, and RFID (radio frequency identification) are complex - and without easy answers - the authors cover much ground, always readably" * Professional Security Magazine *
"this book will give anyone concerned about the growing number of CCTV cameras in our streets or the way young people expose their secrets on Facebook a sound appreciation of the wider issues. * BBC Focus *
"While critics have variously demanded control over the internet, the practical means have been ignored; O'Hara and Shadbolt readdress this, offering detailed accounts of how technology that threatens privacy can be used to protect it." Catherine Humble * The Times Literary Supplement *
