Publisher's Summary

If you want to learn about the internet of things, then pay attention....

You were just woken up in the middle of the night by smart light bulbs in your house blasting at full power for no reason.

Your bleary-eyed investigation shows they tried to download a firmware update and failed. At that moment, Alexa starts quietly whispering sweet nonsense to herself in the corner and Roomba starts slamming into the nearest wall.

What do you do?

Is your house haunted or have the machines finally started an uprising? Neither - it’s just another day in the IoT wonderland.

This book reveals the concepts and methods powering perhaps the most ambitious technological concept of the 21st century - the Internet of Things (IoT) - and parades all the ridiculously named gadgets techies imagined to saturate the market before the competition.

Mystical, cheap, and scalable, the idea of IoT attracts creative grifters of all shapes and sizes to try their luck in pushing yet another completely unnecessary gadget to the market in hopes of fleecing gullible buyers.

Some of the topics you’ll find in the audiobook are:

  • Origins of IoT
  • IoT security
  • Ethical hacking
  • Internet of things
  • Under the cushy foot of tech giants
  • The power of infinite funds
  • IoT toys
  • Bio-robotics
  • Predictive analytics
  • Machine learning
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cybersecurity
  • Big data
  • Business intelligence
  • Augmented reality
  • Virtual reality
  • Our future
  • And much, much more

Could not finish...

I almost never write a review, but this book is absolutely horrible. Narration sounds like text to speech. Some of the examples he sites are interesting, but he never goes into much detail, so there's very little learned as he go through the book. Lots of buzzwords with very little content, other than a cursory review of current events. Apparently, quantum computing is going to be the next big thing and lithium batteries will be here forever. So many times I found myself just saying, huh? I wish I could comment on the last half of the book, but I never made it that far.

Good overview of exciting area

This helpful summary nicely covers the development from the Industrial Internet to the Internet of Humans to the Internet of Everything. The book unites the dots on where IoT can go, and also provides fair details of all components.

Perfect for anybody.

Based on this book, we can conclude that in the future, there will be no work for humans.
What kind of society is this?
And what tools can we buy the goods and services we need?

This book was exciting and educational.

We will see how the IoT will be evolving in the next ten years. Let see what the reaction will be from the consumer after the first cyber-security attack.

Five stars, nevertheless.

It comprises multiple facets of AWS IoT platform.
Although it needed to cover more end-to-end solutions but still comprehensive enough for anybody.

Topic summary guide only

This book gives a gentle summary of the topi only. Dissatisfied with lack of detail on any topic. Well read and easy to listen too but pitched at total beginners
