4.0 out of 5 stars Readable and user-friendly 2 Feb 2012
I hate computers and all technical things. My boyfriend forced me to read this book as he thinks my internet use is reckless. I currently work in a country that heavily blocks access to websites that I need for my work and I also worry about the sensitive data I have on my laptop - so I gave in and decided to check if there's anything that I can do to improve my situation.

I found the book very readable and user-friendly. Some of the book was admittedly over my head, but I learned a number of new things. The book contains a lot of helpful screenshots and its instructions are clearly written. I have already implemented the tips and techniques most relevant to me regarding passwords, web service sign-ups, hard drive encryption, wireless & hotspot internet connections and, most importantly for me, VPN services. I don't use Usenet and probably never will so I only skipped through that chapter, it seemed the most complicated anyway.

As a bonus, I noticed that the book's website does a pretty good job of keeping the materials fresh and up-to-date. For example, the website contained additional recommendations, including for a VPN service that I tried and still happily use. So I will keep an eye on that in the future as well.

All in all, I think it was useful for me to read the book and I would definitely recommend it to others in my situation.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good overview for beginners 20 Feb 2013
By auryx
Format:Kindle Edition
This book provides a good general overview to internet privacy and anonymity for novice to intermediate users. It has a very wide scope, including web browsing, IRC, usenet, mail and so on. However, it doesn't go very deeply into any area for the advanced user and critically, only covers Windows, which is bizarre - surely using a more secure operating system is worth a mention? It's a significant downside to the book, which is otherwise well written and comprehensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Internet privacy, anonymity & security review 21 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If you don't know anything about net anonymity this is the book for you. It could have had a few more tips such as firewall rules/protocols and scripts to use to stay hidden but overall it was well worth the money and full of handy info. The service was very fast and efficient.
