Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A Primer for Understanding Your Privacy & How to Protect It!

Mr. Luna has written an excellent book that provides the reader with an overview of what privacy is, understanding privacy in our day and age, efforts to undermine our privacy, and countermeasures to safeguard our privacy. This book is a treatise on steps to LEGALLY protect your privacy that will make it very difficult, very time consuming, and very expensive for another person, organization, or entity to track and/or find you. His advice is grounded in common sense, stands the test of logic, and compares with "the advice of Solomon".

Mr. Luna provides a value-added service with his website, providing answers to readers' questions and dispensing relevant and timely tidbits. His obvious expertise in the subject matter, stemming from his vast experience in this arena, will assist you in protecting yourself, and your loved ones, from the paranoia and evil of this age. His advice can literally make the difference between life-and-death in several situations.

I highly recommend this book to students of all ages.

Good if you are familiar with OO concepts

This is a very good Java book. It differs from a number of other books that wasting your time with loads of pages explaning basic stuff and avoid the real one. The code examples are helpful. I do recommend it for people with no experience with Java.
