Best Privacy Books

I was invited by Shepherd to list my recommendations for the 5 best books about privacy. Shepherd is a site that posts lists of best books recommended by experts about various topics. It has excellent lists.

I was delighted to have the chance to share my admiration for superb books by Woodrow Hartzog, Danielle Citron, Neil Richards, Anita Allen, and Ari Waldman. There are many other excellent books about privacy, but I was asked to list just 5, so I had to exclude many other very worthy works.

Best Privacy Books Covers

At my list of best privacy books at Shepherd, I describe how I became interested in the privacy field, and I provide short explanations for why I chose each book.

To see a more comprehensive list of nonfiction works about privacy and security, Professor Paul Schwartz and I maintain a resource page on Nonfiction Privacy + Security Books.

For more than a decade, I have been posting each year about notable books published about privacy and security. You can find these lists here.
