Reviewed in Canada on February 8, 2016
This book won't tell you how to change your identity and escape the authorities, your debts, unplanned parenthood or a s***ty marriage. The author makes it clear several times : they do not advocate breaking the law, and changing identities in this computerized era is both more difficult and riskier than just assuming your mistakes.

That being said, for people who need to not be found because you're followed by a stalker or actual criminals, this is the book about getting away, in a pretty legal way, from anyone who would do you harm ; also for those who just don't like the idea of big companies having so much intel about their lives, this may seem like a lot of work, but some will see the value.

The authors take their experience as modern "bounty hunters" and tell you the usual pitfalls that made them so good at their job in their heydays. Assume obviously that methods change and they change quickly ; do not assume this book will tell you everything. A solid start, though, and makes you realize just how easy it is to screw up a carefully planned escape.
