Review: The Art of Invisibility: The World's Most Famous Hacker Teaches You How to Be Safe in the Age of Big Brother and Big Data

The Art of Invisibility: The World's Most Famous Hacker Teaches You How to Be Safe in the Age of Big Brother and Big Data The Art of Invisibility: The World's Most Famous Hacker Teaches You How to Be Safe in the Age of Big Brother and Big Data by Kevin D. Mitnick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Want to find out just how easily your life can go down the drain as a result of digital espionage? Well, just open this book and get punched in the face a few hundred times. Ok, that might be a bit much, but Mitnick is relentless in showing all the ways in which your personal information can be compromised. He delves into the technical matters that may be well above the common reader. But he does take efforts to explain the technical issues with useful analogies and simple explanations. So the book is useful and informative for giving readers a sense of how easily compromised they can be, every time they use digitial devices of all sorts. However, in his attempt to show ways of addressing the problems he identifies, it becomes quickly overwhelming as he talks about owning numerous devices and computers with different rule-sets. But at least he can say he told us all when all our information has been inevitably compromised and we've been locked out of our own resources.
