Description

Kevin Mitnick, the world's most famous hacker, teaches you easy cloaking and countermeasures for citizens and consumers in the age of Big Brother and Big Data.

Like it or not, your every move is being watched and analyzed. Consumers' identities are being stolen, and a person's every step is being tracked and stored. What once might have been dismissed as paranoia is now a hard truth, and privacy is a luxury few can afford or understand.

In this explosive yet practical book, Kevin Mitnick illustrates what is happening without your knowledge - and he teaches you "the art of invisibility". Mitnick is the world's most famous - and formerly the most wanted - computer hacker. He has hacked in to some of the country's most powerful and seemingly impenetrable agencies and companies, and at one point he was on a three-year run from the FBI. Now, though, Mitnick is reformed and is widely regarded as the expert on the subject of computer security. He knows exactly how vulnerabilities can be exploited and just what to do to prevent that from happening.

In The Art of Invisibility Mitnick provides both online and real-life tactics and inexpensive methods to protect you and your family, in easy step-by-step instructions. He even talks about more advanced "elite" techniques, which, if used properly, can maximize your privacy. Invisibility isn't just for superheroes - privacy is a power you deserve and need in this modern age.

Authors, PLEASE Hire Ray Porter to Read Your Books

This is the first nonfiction book I've listened to Ray Porter read. WOW! What an experience! Mitnick is a fantastic writer to begin with, not boring at all, but Porter takes his words to the next level. I never found myself drifting off, thinking about other things. I was 100% present in the book throughout. This is a rarity, as some readers are an absolute chore to stay tuned in to. Not Ray!

I encourage ALL nonfiction writers to start hiring Ray Porter to read their books. He adds an excitement to academic tomes that is welcome and refreshing.

As for the book itself, it's OUTSTANDING. The other reviews praising it are spot on. Mitnick is WAYYYYYYYYYY ahead of the techno-curve, and wants you to be as well. Buy this book for its practical advice. Enjoy the book because of RAY!

Enough bits to be worth the read; overly focused on wrong threat models

If you're like me, you came to this book just wanting to protect your privacy. You'll get some good ideas from Mitnick. However, too much of the book was aimed at the unlikely reader: someone truly wanting to cover their tracks from government surveillance... and then only in the final chapter did he truly pull together a formula for establishing enough identity encryption to do so.

There are some entertaining stories you'd hope from an ex-Black Hat. He kept what could be a dry topic fun to read.

Ray Porter (narrator) did a great job of adding emphasis to enliven the book. However, it was disappointing when he fully mispronounced essential terms; it immediately drained creditability from the author's voice. Also, Porter's emphasis was a bit thick, so much so that he made Mitnick sound down right bratty and annoying.. I've seen Mitnick in interviews and he doesn't come across that way to me.

Technically, you will walk away with a couple of good tips and product recommendations as well as understanding why they are good choices.

Great information, good stories and examples as proof, and an enjoyable audiobook overall. there is a lot of great information in here both for the casual web surfer and rmailer, as well as for even the most experienced sys admin or sys eng.

Mitnick delivers yet again

I'm a 20 year IT admin, and know a lot about many of the technologies Kevin discusses in this book, but the real gold is how he explains the how's, whys, gotchas and more when it comes to online privacy. Unless your name is Edward Snowden, you should get this book. You will love it.

Good in parts, solid information.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of Invisibility to be better than the print version?

I don't know.

Would you be willing to try another book from Kevin Mitnick? Why or why not?

Yes. I have been following Kevin Mitnick's career since he first came to notoriety.

What three words best describe Ray Porter’s performance?

I don't really like his intonation and performance.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

It was interesting to hear how far you would have to go to be able to set up a totally anonymous Internet connection. Kudos to anyone who has actually carried this out.

Any additional comments?

I'm really interested in Kevin Mitnick's story but there was little new here for people who are interested in his back story. The information is solid but very much a book which has a limited lifetime due to the advances in IT security tools. After a few years parts will become redundant.If you keep up with computer security then you should already know all of the information presented.There were only a few instances when I came across something new. A beginner would gain a lot but the information overload might overwhelm them. A good book to give a security unaware decision maker to persuade them to take security seriously and hire someone who understands all this stuff.

Excellent Book!

Mitnick does an excellent job balancing technical jargon and audience engagement. He masterfully simplifies complex subject matter and explains cyber security concepts in a way that the general populous can understand and learn from.
I highly recommend listening through once for an overview of the ideas, and then at least once more if you plan on putting his words into practice.

An uninteresting how-to of extreme measures

Any additional comments?

The interesting parts and the actionable advice that most people would find reasonable (like using a password manager) could be summed up in maybe 10 minutes. The rest was advice that most people would find absolutely unreasonable to incorporate into their lives (e.g., pay a stranger to purchase prepaid gift cards that you can use to buy a mobile hotspot, whose mac address you'll change every time you use it, or set up multiple email accounts to launder bitcoins,...). If you're a big time criminal, some of these things are worth you time, but for most of us they aren't.

It's not about just internet.

Lots of valuable information. This book is not about just internet. It's about your privacy and security.

Amazingly terrifying!

It was very informative and well explained. I found I needed to take notes right away to keep up with all the data breaches I had and he showed me how to fix in the first few chapters. It only got more informative from there and ended perfectly with a chapter on how to protect yourself online. I loved this book!

Audio is Not the Right Format

After about an hour I've decide to return the book and buy a paper or Kindle copy instead.
A line in an audio book that says, "For more instructions... see page 117" is about as clear of an indicator as you can get that audio is the wrong format. It's a pity because I really like both the content and the performance, but to make practical use of the book, I need something I can read.
