Keenly illustrating both the pros and cons of various privacy-enhancing and potentially privacy-invading technologies, J.C.'s analysis is thorough and well-balanced. J.C. also explains many of the legal implications of electronic privacy policies and technologies, providing an invaluable domestic and international view."
—Steve Riley, Product Manager, Security Business and Technology Unit, Windows Division, Microsoft
"Privacy concerns are pervasive in today's high-tech existence. The issues covered by this book should be among the foremost concerns of developers and technology management alike."
