Three of the best new books for the digital citizen

Annie Coreno named three top books for the digital citizen for PWxyz, the news blog of Publishers Weekly, including:
Spying on Democracy: Government Surveillance, Corporate Power and Public Resistance by Heidi Boghosian

National Lawyers Guild Executive Director Heidi Boghosian’s purpose is not necessarily to dissuade you from using technology but rather unveil how your personal information is being used and the various implications of its use. Michael German, a former FBI agent, says its best in his blurb: This book provides “the answer to the question, ‘if you’re not doing anything wrong, why should you care if someone is watching you?’”
