As is all too usual in discussions about AI, the negative impact on privacy is crowded out by the negative impact on jobs -- 3 completely inadequate pages on the former versus a whole chapter on the latter. Described far too favorably is the Internet of Things, one of the all-time worst ideas from the standpoint of security and privacy. In other respects, the book is as good as one could expect from a journalist author, with inclusion of speculative chapters on mind uploading and the (risky?) development of *general* AI (AGI).
