I recently read "Little Brother" by Cory Doctorow.


"Little Brother is a scarily realistic adventure about how homeland security technology could be abused to wrongfully imprison innocent Americans. A teenage hacker-turned-hero pits himself against the government to fight for his basic freedoms. This book is action-packed with tales of courage, technology, and demonstrations of digital disobedience as the technophile's civil protest."


It's more or less a handbook in your rights as a free individual in the western world as well as a teaching book in surveilance and computer technology. Pretty cool stuff, and quite chilling. The scenario in this book feels very real, and is a warning for todays society who's gradually been letting go of its civil rights in order to fight "terrorism"!


this book comes highly recommended and you can download the book from the authors site for free:
