    The Privacy BIBLE!

    This is an excellent book on privacy techniques. What I like about it is that JJ Luna discusses various levels of privacy, and I have found that the more privacy you want, the more time/effort you will have to go through to maintain it. He talks about how to go about receiving your mail, where to choose to live, how use the phone, how to pay people, and how to title assets more privately. I like this book because JJ Luna does not try to force a one size fits all agenda upon people, but lets the reader decide on what level of privacy is right for them. There are varying levels of privacy which can be obtained for each one, depending on your circumstances (e.g. family, job, etc). Of course, the more privacy you want, the more you will have to sacrifice, but most of these techniques are simple and won't take too much extra time out of your week. Another thing this book goes into is how to work in a more private fashion. There are varying degrees to this as well and to obtain the highest levels of privacy, JJ Luna ultimately suggests to become self-employed. He touches on some points on that as well, but if you want more on that, then also be sure to check out his other book called Work From Home At Any Age (ISBN 0976387239), which I also highly recommend.

    Up to date for 2005

    This is not only the best book on maintaining personal privacy, it is the ONLY book in the field where the author (at howtobeinvisible.com) answers questions and/or updates his book every day including Sundays and holidays! He gives impelling reasons why you should never again ever receive mail, packages, or deliveries of any kind at your home address. For special needs, he indicates sources for private mail-forwarding services in Canada and Alaska. He also recommends LLCs for anonymous ownership of cars and real estate--recommendations which I have followed and have been very happy with. This book is an ideal gift for special occasions or any occasion at all.

    How to Be Invisible

    I have over 30 books on privacy. Most list illegal ways--many of which don't work--as a way to privacy. Luna obviously writes from personal experience, stays legal most of the time, and has step-by-step instructions that anyone [even me] can follow. No other book even comes close.

    This is the absolute BEST privacy book, BUY IT, Read it

    J. J. Luna has written the best book on the subject bar none. Forget offshore, forget crazy hair brained theorical ideas, and forget illegal schemes. Mr. Luna writes in an easy to read style in a book jammed packed with good ideas that arre legal and practical and highly usable right here in the good old USA. Your privacy may be the last right and its fading last in the computer age. Mr. Luna tells how and why to set up a 'ghost address', which protects your home location. He tells of the benefits of LLCs or Limited Liability Companies. He talks about the different levels of privacy, you may not want or need the highest level of privacy, but most people need some additional measures taken. There are just enough, or perhaps too many crazy, sick people in the world to threaten your privacy or your life. Without hesitation I recommend this book in the highest terms.

    How to Be Invisible

    What I liked best was the the book is unusually complete. It covers such diverse topics as ghost addresses for delivery services; alternate Social Security numbers; hiding ownership via nominees, trusts and LLCs; anonymous money transfers; air travel; computers, e-mail and the Internet. Best of all is an extensive index which I use a great deal. This book has the ring of authenticity. I showed it to a PI who said he hopes none of his targets ('skips') ever read this book.
