CHOICE ReviewDeNardis (American Univ.) takes a look at the policy issues, whether currently acknowledged or not, that have accompanied the growth of the internet of things and the popular network of embedded, networked technologies. The text includes some historical material, but mostly keeps discussion current as we face a digital transformation of the internet from its role as a communications tool for people to one serving communications among devices. DeNardis focuses primarily on issues of human rights and digital security, arguing that the policy issues around these are only going to become more complex and more urgent. The work is evenhanded and clear about when it is presenting facts and when the text conveys the author's opinion. It is solidly researched, and references far more literature than the expected canon. The most useful aspect of the work is that it remains highly accessible: DeNardis does not overwhelm the reader with technical jargon or an expectation of prior understanding of the topics addressed. This makes the book a good resource for undergraduate courses covering digital policy, security, and science and technology studies. Despite all the research behind it, The Internet in Everything will become more of a springboard to further ideas than a definitive source. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readers. --Peter Lawrence Kantor, Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy
