    One thought on “How to Be Invisible: The Essential Guide to Protecting Your Personal Privacy, Your Assets, and Your Life”

    1. An essential guide for paranoiacs, HOW TO BE INVISIBLE will inspire and instruct you to take simple actions that can, on the one hand, protect your property and privacy, but will, on the other hand, exasperate your wife to no fucking end.

    2. If you saw the movie Enemy of the State and were inspired to replicate the degree of security that Gene Hackman's character had, this is the book for you. If instead, you were looking for some practical tips on how to maintain a normal life with a little more privacy, then keep looking - this is not that book.Author JJ Luna defines privacy using rather stringent criteria (i.e. could a professional investigator find you). Given that premise, he recommends setting up 'ghost addresses' (an address [...]

    3. This was an interesting read. How do you keep yourself under radar in an information age where anyone, anywhere, can track you down? According to Mr. Luna, you really can become "invisible", but it sure takes a bunch of work to make it happen. This is especially difficult since the acts of Sept 11 2001 blew the whole undercover idea away.Still, if you really want to give it a go, this book is very comprehensive in its guidelines. The author is an expert because he has actually lived this lifesty [...]

    4. How To Be Invisible is a must read for anyone living today. In it, the author provides means and methods for the average citizen to protect himself/herself from all that is out there. I am not entirely committed to some of his ideas and/or principles, but, for the most part, they have been tried and are true methods to protect oneself. Can one really become invisible? I do not think the author actually is advocating that. However, one can take many and varied precautions so that no one will be a [...]

    5. “If, in fact, you have ever received a letter or a package at your present address and under your real name, the only way to protect your privacy is to move.” Chapter 6This quote is the starting point of every step in this book and if that scares you or makes you shake your head in amusement, you should take a look at this book. In the few days it took me to read it I felt like not only was Big Brother watching, but so were Giant Daddy, Nosy Momma, and Little Sister.3.5 starsFirst, this book [...]

    6. Dangerously obsolete advice in the age of smartphones and social networks and global adversaries like NSA/GCHQ

    7. Somebody recommended this book to me and it totally freaked me out. Like, a lot. The instructions felt a little dated, but I still got something out of it. Namely, use a private mail box and keep an air horn by your bed.

    8. "Legal means to Create and Maintain the privacy you desire"I am not yet paranoid enough to do this, and I hope I never am. But he can tell you how if you need to or want to make yourself impossible to find. SkimmedI did not read this book from page to page, I thought his suggestion on how to use a mnomenic to create secure passwords might have some merit. Thus, my first attempt was successful, my second and third were a disaster. Cause, one would not allow an *, and one required two numerals. He [...]

    9. Some may say well parts of this are common sense, "Common sense, isn't so common". B. Franklin, it's the combination the layers that one can create. Lets face it, no pun intended, FaceBook and Google maybe fighting for who has the biggest ______. But in the mean time the invasive practices have infiltrated almost every part of out lives, they know what we sound like, GoogleVoice, Siri and other Talk to text and similar applications. After 9/11 it became obvious that we would become a police stat [...]

    10. This is one of those books you can't judge by the covers or the blurbs. I thought it would give me tips to supplement what I already do to avoid having my identity stolen. But no, this is much more than that.J.J. Luna is an expert who offers advice on how to live off the grid to varying degrees. After I realized the real aim of the book, I read it for fascination value. I did glean a few practical tips for my life and as a friend who will be reading the book pointed out, that one tidbit makes it [...]

    11. An interesting read, but its clear that a multitude of his suggestions are no longer feasible given recent legislation (open a bank account with a passport and out of state mailing address or a utility bill in the name of an LLC? HA! Good luck!) This technique would rely heavily on nominees, and I think people are less inclined than ever to do such a thing. I found his chapters on LLCs and Corporations, as well as mail-rerouting informative.(You are forewarned: expect to spend time mentally repl [...]

    12. This was an interesting read. This showed me that what I thought my right to privacy is in this electronic age is no more then an illusion. Utter privacy is a privilege that few of us can economically afford. The author is an expert of this material and dividing the goal of why a person seeks a certain level of privacy is important. After finishing this book I have a clear understanding about how to develop the resources to be invisible. The challenges described by Luna make a convincing case as [...]

    13. Picked this book up on a recommendation from Frank Ahern's How to Disappear, and found it an overall superior choice - a very interesting read on how to keep or reclaim your privacy. It's imprudent to let so much true information about yourself remain readily accessible to prying hands and J.J. Luna will show you both why and how to undo the damage. Definitely recommended, especially to the "I've got nothing to hide" folks, to whom this may be a shocking eye-opener on all the ways they make them [...]

    14. Spectacularly informative. Side effects include paranoia To anyone who thinks privacy is impossible in a digital age, I encourage you to read this! Or at least my review here: wordowl.tumblr/post/891638

    15. shady to say the least. if you're looking to put yourself in some bizarre witness protection plan this is the book for you and by God have mercy on your soul. ps its a little out of date with current federal laws

    16. High on self-promotion, low on information. There is a little bit of cool stuff about what P.I.'s do to catch people but it's a lot of patting himself on the back "look at what I've done" etc. And whats up with the inside back cover photo? A pic next to a helicoptor? Like dude you're not James Bond.And who moves AWAY from the US in one of the best economic times of the twentieth century? Like seriously dude. Endures 20 years of hardship and bitches about it.Also seems like a geriatric regarding [...]

    17. I enjoyed the information, but it seemed extreme and paranoid most of the time. Luna gives specific examples of crimes against those whose identity have been compromised. I realize that they are out there. However, the author would have strengthened his case if he had data showing the incidence of those crimes that involve an identity leak.

    18. Wow, paranoid. With some good reason but a tough chew for some.I had some issues with it, aside from some poor copy-editing and substantive editing. First, and most important, I found many things that actually were illegal in this book. This could be a nationality issue - the book is written for Americans and I am not - but because I had picked a chapter in the middle to read for fun before reading the whole thing and found the things I knew to be illegal, I was now questioning the legality of e [...]

    19. Please note: I read the UPDATED version and it's definitely out of date. Most of the info the author provides is very generic, I can't say it's worth buying. Each 'tip" provided surrounding privacy issues or becoming invisible is information easily found on the web. These days most people know about VPN's, encrypted email accounts, using PO boxes; not to mention TOR browser, Duck Duck Go, which allows for virtual anonymity on-line with the ability to search FREE information on how to protect pri [...]

    20. This was an interesting read. Luna gives a huge heap of advice on how to live your life in such a way that a private investigator can't find you unless the person that hired them has infinite money. The book proceeds from easiest steps to hardest, starting with how to avoid associating your home address with your name and ending with how to practically disappear when fleeing the country.The various ideas are sort of mind bending. Luna advocates owning personal property like cars with LLCs. He al [...]

    21. It really does give you step-by-step instructions about how to shelter your assets from casual inspection. I think it's particularly relevant for anyone who wants to maintain their financial privacy in this age where so much real estate and other data is available searchable by name on the internet. I haven't followed a lot of the suggestions, but I do subscribe to an out-of-state mail service which I use as my mailing address.

    22. This was a spectacularly interesting book, but its perspective seemed to come from a very closed-off (paranoid?) angle. In order to consider working with the advice therein, I felt like I'd have to become pretty paranoid as well -- and I opted for relaxed, rational optimism rather than thinking about the 2% chance that my life could go to hell by accident. We'll find out if that was a mistake eventually. Maybe. ;}

    23. I learned a few things, but really, this edition published in 2000 is way out of date. Too many changes in the internet and regulations over the past 10 years. I expect the most recent edition is worth reading, if only for more eye-opening info about how un-private our lives really are without conscious, painstaking steps to block random strangers' ability to access our personal information.

    24. Very informative. However, since it was written in the beginning of the 00s, it does not include any information about social networks or smartphones. For that, read Nicholas Carr or visit EFF's or Richard Stallman's website."Do not, as long as you live, ever again allow your real name to be coupled with your home address."

    25. I'm all about protecting my personal information to avoid identity theft and maintain privacy so this book was a real eye opener. Working in IT over the years has opened my eyes to some of the potential dangers, but this booked was way out there talked about stuff I never in my life considered and for that I totally loved it.

    26. Luna is a hands down expert in the field of privacy. His real life examples of ways our too-easily-offered personal information is used in harmful ways is an appropriate and sobering lesson in how to protect ourselves from identity thieves and worse. This is a must read for those working in high profile jobs.

    27. Initially I gave this book 2/5 but I've upped it by one primarily for having clear recommendations on protecting your assets. I've read several other books that alluded to doing this, but this one actually gave the steps. I didn't always agree with the author's approach to the material, but ok fine. His opinion.

    28. The only reason I can't give this book five stars is because it only deals with American law, but it still contains a lot of good information if you skip and scan the legal stuff. Everyone should read this book, it will definitely open your eyes to the fact that too many people have access to your personal data.
