--Geoffrey A. Moore, author, Dealing with Darwin: How GreatCompanies Innovate at Every Phase of Their Evolution

"Holtzman has drafted a blueprint all citizens of this great landought to read if they desire to understand what privacy trulymeans, why it is important to both their everyday life as well asto their understanding of what it really means to be free, and whatthey can do to salvage what little privacy is left them. PrivacyLost needs to be readily available on the desks of all concernedcitizens--heavily dog-eared and underlined."
--Bob Barr, practicing attorney and former Member of theUnitedStates House of Representatives

From the Inside Flap:

The Patriot Act, government eavesdropping, the distribution of ourmost personal information—recent security breaches andmarketing?related invasions have affected the privacy of millionsof Americans. So who has access to this information about us andwhat exactly are they doing with it? This question touches almostevery aspect of our lives—from control over our finances andidentities to the (assumed) basic right to keep our thoughts,actions, medical histories, whereabouts, and other personalinformation to ourselves.

We can not afford to ignore this issue. This book will help usall understand what is at risk in the Digital Age, who theperpetrators are, what we can do about it, and how and why, to someextent, our privacy is already lost.

"As society struggles to understand how technology is impactingprivacy, David Holtzman's ideas and vision continue to be centralto the discussion. This book helps us understand what's atstake."
—Andreas S. Weigend, former chief scientist, Amazon.com, andprincipal, Weigend Associates

"At a time when the Berlin Wall and Communism stood strongagainst the world and the Soviet Union tried to outpace the UnitedStates in an unprecedented arms race, a small group of selectprofessionals performed the analysis required to combat the latestweapons technology and helped to bring an end to that cold war. Iam proud to tell you that Dave Holtzman was a key member of thatunique group who could never be openly recognized for what they didor how they did it."
—Mark E. Clesh, National Security Agency, Defsmac IntelDirector
