Publisher Comments:

From cyberspace to crawl spaces, new innovations in information gathering have left the private life of the average person open to scrutiny, and worse, exploitation. In this thoroughly revised update of his immensely popular guide How to Be Invisible, J.J. Luna shows you how to protect yourself from these information predators by securing your vehicle and real estate ownership, your bank accounts, your business dealings, your computer files, your home address, and more.

J.J. Luna, a highly trained and experienced security consultant, shows you how to achieve the privacy you crave and deserve, whether you just want to shield yourself from casual scrutiny or take your life savings with you and disappearing without a trace. Whatever your needs, Luna reveals the shocking secrets that private detectives and other seekers of personal information use to uncover information and then shows how to make a serious commitment to safeguarding yourself.

There is a prevailing sense in our society that true privacy is a thing of the past. Filled with vivid real life stories drawn from the headlines and from Luna's own consulting experience, How to Be Invisible, Revised Edition is a critical antidote to the privacy concerns that continue only to grow in magnitude as new and more efficient ways of undermining our personal security are made available. Privacy is a commonly-lamented casualty of the Information Age and of the world's changing climate-but that doesn't mean you have to stand for it.

Synopsis:

When Jason Hanson joined the CIA in 2003, he never imagined that the same tactics he used as a CIA officer for counter intelligence, surveillance, and protecting agency personnel would prove to be essential in every day civilian life.

In addition to escaping handcuffs, picking locks, and spotting when someone is telling a lie, he can improvise a self-defense weapon, pack a perfect emergency kit, and disappear off the grid if necessary. He has also honed his and#147;positive awarenessand#8221;and#151;a heightened sense of his surroundings that allows him to spot suspicious and potentially dangerous behaviorand#151;on the street, in a taxi, at the airport, when dining out, or in any other situation.

In his engaging and empowering bookand#160;Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life, Hanson shares this know-how with readers, revealing how to:

  • prevent home invasions, carjackings, muggings, and other violent crimes
  • run counter-surveillance and avoid becoming a soft target
  • recognize common scams at home and abroad
  • become a human lie detector in any setting, including business negotiations
  • gain peace of mind by being prepared for anything instead of uninformed or afraid

With the skill of a trained operative and the relatability of a suburban dad, Hanson brings his top-level training to everyday Americans in this must-have guide to staying safe in an increasingly dangerous world.

Synopsis:

In this second edition, there are new sections on: Cellphone security and satellite telephones; How to make sure personal information remains secure when everyone from telemarketers to con artists is doing their best to steal it; Protecting home computers against attacks from within, and much more.

About the Author

J. J. (Jack) Luna sold his outdoor advertising business in the Upper Midwest in 1959 and moved with his wife and small children to Spain's Canary Islands (off the coast of West Africa). Outwardly, he worked as a professional writer and photographer. Secretly, however, he dodged the Spanish Secret Police while working underground in an activity that was at that time illegal under the dictatorship of Generalissimo Francisco Franco. In 1970 Franco, yielding to intense pressure from the western world, moderated Spain's laws. Luna was now free to come in from the cold. By that time, however, privacy had become an ingrained habit. In the years that followed he started up various low-profile home-based businesses, built them up and then sold them. He is currently an international consultant specializing in personal privacy and security.

Gold Gato, August 8, 2014 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
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 lifestyle for decades and he offers extra tips for the wary.
