Comments about oreilly The Basics of Digital Privacy:
Well written, but VERY, VERY basic. If you know anything about even computer basics you probably know the basics in this book. There is very little about real "digital" privacy in here, more about common sense privacy in the digital and real world. A nice work as a reminder to anyone about general privacy concerns, but not a true technical work or deep work in any way. The description is way over stated!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
