AN EXCERPT: How Not to Disappear

There are several books and Web sites that explain how to obtain a new identity. If you are a not a criminal or international spy, you do not need a new identity to safely and discretely disappear. . . . What people fail to take into consideration is how they can test out their new identity. Do you book a trip internationally and just wing it past customs? Do you speed in your car and wait 'til you get pulled over and have the cop run your new license? Perhaps you walk into a Social Security office with your birth certificate and apply for a Social Security number at the age of thirty-five and explain you have been living in a cave for the past twenty years? . . . New identities are a bad idea. Imagine that you are now Mr. Vincent Vega from Palm Springs, and you’re hanging out with your lady friend and her family sipping Pina Coladas and over walks your best friend from high school. This dumb nut starts calling you by your real name, Dexter Plaidpants. Just try explaining that to all at the table—cover blown. New identities are like roulette: It is only a matter of time until your number comes up!

I bought this book hoping to see something interesting that I hadn't thought of before. Unfortunately, this book did not provide that. All of the ideas were basically common sense, with a few of the author's personal stories thrown in. It's interesting in a sense--mainly the chapter on faking your own death, but I don't intend to read it again nor recommend it to anyone.

I bought the book hoping to find or read about his techniques or methods so I could apply them for my own personal privacy. The book pitches the exact same methods in each chapter. This could have easily been shorter and thus prevented wasting my time. Mentioned resources scarce and are outdated by years. I would not recommend it. Only two or tnree chapters needed....the rest is fluff
