Worth Reading?

Absolutely. Kevin Mitnick (author) provides novice and sophisticated computer users numerous tips to enhance personal on-line / cyber security.  I've been in the security business for almost 30 years, and this is one of the best books I've seen that provides at home users deep, but applicable, insights to home on-line security.

Worth Owning?

Yes. The book gives readers the mental insights and perspective one must have to best maintain personal privacy.

Is there such a thing as right of privacy?

In theory yes. However Mitnick proves how computer/phone users relinquish that privacy through vanity purchases. The government does not need to monitor your information; you give your data away to companies who SELL your private information to big data services supporting businesses using big data to target your wallet; determine whether an employee should hire you; your credit information; your security "secret answers" to "secret questions". 

Can you be invisible on the web?

No. You always leave a trace. You can only delay being found. You delay being found by creating a seperate identity. You must push equipment (computer, modems, printers, etc) and services only associated with that identity. You cannot use that equipment at home because of risk of contaminaton with your real identity. Your ability to hide will last only for so long, because you will eventually make a mistake.

Everything you do can be monitored at work, home or play. At work, whatever you print resides on the queue at work for the network monitors. Whatever you try to print can be used to assess your printing habits, and whether they are tied to work. Computer owned electronic equipment (phones, computers, cars) can be tracked an monitored to assess your level of work performance, as well as personal habits.

What benefit is the book? 

Mitnick provides readers a wealth of at-home easy-to-apply fundamentals and concepts you can employ to secure your daily personal and business dealings.

SNOW BULLY–Better than a Shovel, Easy to Use, Energy Efficient, Cost Effective and Made in the USA

Are you ready for the snow season? I don't know about you, I have a long driveway I hate just pushing snow out with the shovel. I don't have a truck where I can add a snow plow blade to push away the snow. However, I did find something that may be of interest to you… It's called the SNOW BULLY . I just purchased a SNOW BULLY a little over a month ago. It’s made of heavy steel, but very easy to maneuver. I cannot wait to use it. Shoveling can be backbreaking work, it can also be dangerous because of the amount of stress it can put on your heart. The SNOW BULLY is easy to maneuver and push your way through snow. The SNOW BULLY is cost effective; you do not have to hire someone to clear your driveway. Its energy efficient, you do not need gas or fuel, you just push…its totally green in terms of clean energy use. The SNOW Bully does not stress the muscles in your back like shoveling.
