You need to know what's coming. But, until now, most guides to the Internet of Everything have been written for technical experts. Now, the world's #1 author of beginning technology books has written the perfect introduction for every consumer and citizen. In The Internet of Things, Michael Miller reveals how a new generation of autonomously connected smart devices is emerging, and how it will enable people and devices to do more things, more intelligently, and more rapidly.

Miller demystifies every type of smart device, both current and future. Each chapter ends with a special "...and You" section, offering up-to-the-minute advice for using today's IoE technologies or preparing for tomorrow's.

You'll also discover the potential downsides and risks associated with intelligent, automatic interaction. When all your devices can communicate with each other (and with the companies that sell and monitor them), how private is your private life? Do the benefits outweigh the risks? And what does a connected world do when the connections suddenly go down? Packed with scenarios and insider interviews, The Internet of Things makes our future utterly, vividly real.
