"How would it feel to find out that your neighbor and friend has secretly observed you in your own home for years, the place that should be most private to you was not, and the intruder's devices themselves weren't something you'd ever have thought to look for? This kind of behavior is the opposited of giving normal people freedom and security, of valuing and respecting them as humans—and it's happening more and more. The answer to peeping eyes and cyber-theft is to move society toward greater cyberscurity, and it all starts with essential education about being private and invisible in our daily lives. Kevin's book is a must-read in this new world. "   Steve Wozniak, Cofounder, Apple Inc.

Be online without leaving a trace.

Your every step online is being tracked and stored, and your identity literally stolen. Big companies and big governments want to know and exploit what you do, and privacy is a luxury few can afford or understand.

In this explosive yet practical book, Kevin Mitnick uses true-life stories to show exactly what is happening without your knowledge, teaching you "the art of invisibility"--online and real-world tactics to protect you and your family, using easy step-by-step instructions. Reading this book, you will learn everything from password protection and smart Wi-Fi usage to advanced techniques designed to maximize your anonymity.

Kevin Mitnick knows exactly how vulnerabilities can be exploited and just what to do to prevent that from happening. The world's most famous--and formerly the US government's most wanted--computer hacker, he has hacked into some of the country's most powerful and seemingly impenetrable agencies and companies, and at one point was on a three-year run from the FBI. Now Mitnick is reformed and widely regarded as the expert on the subject of computer security.

Invisibility isn't just for superheroes--privacy is a power you deserve and need in the age of Big Brother and Big Data.
