How the Internet of Things will change your life: all you need to know, in plain English!
The Internet of Things (IoT) won't just connect people: It will connect "smart" homes, appliances, cars, offices, factories, cities… the world. You need to know what's coming: It might just transform your life.
Now, the world's #1 author of beginning technology books has written the perfect introduction to IoT for everyone. Michael Miller shows how connected smart devices will help people do more, do it smarter,
do it faster. He also reveals the potential risks—to your privacy, your freedom, and maybe your life.
Make no mistake: IoT is coming quickly. Miller explains why you care, helps you use what's already here, and prepares you for the world that's hurtling toward you.
