Omaha Public Schools - Jane Colling

"Snedden covers many interesting topics and explains the science behind how they work. From metal detectors to surveillance cameras there are many short insets with background color to keep a student’s interest. Snedden is quick to point out that people are worried about the government invading their privacy. England especially has more security cameras per person than any other country. Snedden also has many colorful pictures and diagrams to help students visualize the various concepts being discussed. One of my favorite sections is on how security can listen to people in a room using lasers! The laser listening device can detect tiny vibrations in glass windows and can be translated into conversations. Another interesting crime is how thieves use skimming to steal a person’s credit card information; fortunately the police have created an anti-skimming device that is now used in ATM machines. This book would be an awesome addition for any forensics, science, history, technology or even a debate class. –Jane Colling, Central High School Omaha Public Schools 2/7/2013" - Omaha Public Schools
