Description: We think we know everything about our smartphones. We use them constantly. We depend on them for every conceivable purpose. We are familiar with every inch of their compact frames. But there is more to the smartphone than meets the eye.How have smartphones shaped the way we socialize and interact? Who tracks our actions, our preferences, our movements as recorded by our smartphones? To what lengths will phone manufacturers and mobile operating systems go to protect their profits? And who is part of the underground networks that smuggles, hacks, and knocks off smartphones and why? These are just some of the questions that journalist Elizabeth Woyke answers in this muckraking exposé of this $241 billion industry that delivers more than 700 million devices each year.In the tradition of The Coffee Book, The Sneaker Book, Oil, and Cigarettes, The Smartphone Book is a smart, lucid, and startling introduction to a seemingly familiar feature of our day-to-day lives. Not only will it leave readers with a greater understanding of how these devices operate, but it will also inspire them to make this massive industry operate in their favor.
