While this book is probably of better quality than most, I did not find it all that great. If you are looking for information about getting a private mailbox, don't look here. While the advice is decent, it was not what I was looking for.
Even worse, the author in several places hints that he has even better methods but won't reveal them to us(in order to protect his own privacy).
A good book? Yes. But for me(trying to find information on using the postal mail system privatly), it did not have what I wanted.
I still enjoyed reading it(just because I like this sorta thing) but it really didn't have much one couldn't figure out for oneself with a bit of thinking.

Great primer about all the little droppings one leaves around going about one's daily business. Pagers, computer, internet, your home, your groceries, your automobile, etc., all the aspects are covered, albeit some more in depth than others. You also get some real life stories about how some notorious fugitives got caught when they screwed up. If you were ever thinking of disappearing, get this book and go from there. If I was to say that the book had one over riding precept, it would be "That leaving a light trail is leaving the same thing as an obvious trail. Any trail at all will get you caught. Its an all or nothing game". Let the fugitive beware!

I've read over 20 books on privacy throughout the years, most of which were merely rehashes of each other with little original or useful info. Boston T. Party's book, Bulletproof Privacy, is the real thing! I guess he's developed his experience from being "Boston" (author of Good-Bye April 15th!, You & The Police!, Hologram of Liberty, Boston on Guns & Courage, and Boston on Surviving Y2K), and it shows. An excellent synthesis of street savvy measures, knowledge of the law, human psychology, and realism--this book is just superb. The tip about how to establish a working, yet untraceable, address is alone worth the price.

The fact that a book like this needs to be published is proof that there is something wrong with our republic. Our privacy guaranteed by among other things, the fourth and fifth amendments, is in tatters and government can do things "legally" now that they could not do as little as 10 to 15 years ago. An example of this is search your house or computer, take or copy things, and not let you know about it. This is now legal. Get Boston's book to counter this insidious problem. Fight back against apathy and those who would take advantage of your ignorance.

The book was a fun read. I really enjoy the author's humor...most of the time. The methods he describes are interesting and really a good way to introduce the public to the realities of our lack of privacy. However, he also writes in a way that makes one think that total privacy is doable and easy...which it is not. Most people do not have the bankroll nor means of attaining the "essentials" to privacy described in the book. However, it's the little things he mentions we do on a daily basis to ensure more privacy that seemed much more doable.

Mr. "Party" has compiled a very good starter book for ensuring one's privacy but this is not a treatise that will provide everything you need to know.
Still, you probably won't need another book because you probably won't feel it necessary even to follow all the suggestions in this volume. And there are plenty here - more than enough for most purposes.
In short, this is a great place to start if you feel the need to take back some privacy, but it won't teach you how to disappear.

Boston T. Party is a master of privacy, and he shares his secrets with the reader in Bulletproof Privacy. I've read a few books about privacy, but this is by far the best guide. He doesn't feed you that soft stuff about removing your name from mailing lists and stopping telemarketers, like the other privacy guides. He tells you about setting up an untraceable address, how to use the telephone privately, keeping your home private, and more! Every freedom-loving American should get this book!
