Pankau despises domestic tax laws. He urges people to hire a good attorney to help plan a move offshore to a sunny clime with low taxes, bank-privacy rules, and simpler, cheaper living. He recommends New Zealand, Belize, Costa Rica, and Honduras, where the island of Roatan is his own personal hideaway. And for those who truly need to disappear, Pankau explains how amazingly easy it is to obtain a second or third passport, become a new person or stage a phony death.
Pankau is also a powerful advocate for asset-protection planning. The book features some nifty moves to block creditors with bankruptcy laws. There are also methods to maximize state and federal tax exemptions and maneuvers to shield a personal residence, real estate, stocks, or pension accounts from taxes and potential creditors or lawsuits.
The book is for hard-core freedom seekers. It's also recommended for people interested in more conventional techniques for protecting money, property, and other valuables. --Dan Ring --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

To be fair, there were some things about the book I enjoyed. It pointed out how much of our personal information is available across so many databases, and how we leave distinctive trails of ourselves in so many ways.
The book could have been a lot of fun for the average person to read, and it could have been concretely instructive for the serious escapist. But its treatment of the main subject was too light and non-specific to serve as a real "how-to" checklist. As for the "fun" factor, the author comes across as a macho boor, with a cliche' attitude towards the government, women, and others that he considers "stupid jerks." Any modern woman would label him as an M.C.P. I felt like I was reading the work of a 1950s throwback, a Mickey Spillane wannabe.
The worst thing to me was the lack of proofreading. I'd guess there was an average of one grammatical or typographical error per page, and I really don't think I'm exaggerating. The guy really needs to hire an editor before he publishes another word.
In summary, the book is poorly written, it isn't very interesting, and it has no redeeming literary or social value. Into the trash it goes.

This book was a pleasant read, despite one initial example of a sexual encounter to make the case for trying to run and hide what you have from a corrupt judge and your ex-wife. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Mark LaPointe
I tried to runaway to Switzerland. Unfortunately the Feds saw I bought this with my Amazon account and quickly tracked me down.
