Reviews

"As I read Your Face Belongs to Us, it dawned on me that the dystopian future portrayed in some science-fiction movies is already upon us. Whether you like it or not, your face has already been scraped from the internet, stored in a giant database, and made available to law enforcement agencies, private corporations, and authoritarian governments to track and surveil you. Kashmir Hill's fascinating book brings home the scary implications of this new reality."--John Carreyrou, author of Bad Blood

"Kashmir Hill all but invented the tech dystopia beat, and no one is a more exuberant and enjoyable guide to the dark corners of our possible future than she is. Reaching deep into the past to paint a terrifying portrait of our future, Hill's thorough, awe-inspiring reporting and compelling storytelling paint a fascinating tale of tech's next chapter. This is the most fun you can have reading a real-life nightmare."--Garrett Graff, author of The Only Plane in the Sky
