Dragnet Nation has received fantastic reviews. Andrew Leonard in Slate described it as “a deeply researched book that is completely of the moment. Dragnet Nation moves right to the top of the list of books we should all read about privacy.” The Economist wrote that, “Julia Angwin, who oversaw a pioneering series of Wall Street Journal articles called ‘What They Know,’ starting in 2010, exposes many of the questionable activities that erode privacy—activities that most people know nothing about.”
