I bought this book seeking insight in asset protection; however, I leaned nothing useful from this book.
The book is full of "interesting" episodes sourrounding author's clients, with most cases involving cheating on their spouse without leaving behind a paper trail.
The entire book is a "soap opera" written by the co-author who would be a good candidate for writing "Cosmopolitan" artilces but not a serious book about personal finance.
If you want to know how to support your lover without your wife discovering, or if you are a high profile career woman who is about to be engaged with a macho truck driver, then you may find some information in this book interesting, just so you can feel consolation in knowing that you are not the only one who is facing this problem.
If you really want to "know about keeping your money and valuables safe from predators and greedy creditors", as stated in the book's subtitle, this book will disappoint you, and let me warn you that you don't even want to come close to this book.
"How to be invisible" by J.J. Luna was far more interesting and informative.

In Dec. 2002, a San Francisco federal grand jury indicted Schneider (along with Eric Witmeyer) for conspiracy to defraud the US government. According to the indictment (which is on the web), undercover operatives of the IRS criminal investigations unit posed as US taxpayers interested in acquiring an offshore bank or corporation from Schneider and having it decontrolled by California attorney Witmeyer. Here "decontrol" means concealing the foreign business entity from the IRS. In short, the author has been indicted for conspiracy to commit tax fraud. Of course, the accused are innocent until proven guilty, but this indictment provides notice that the content of this book is suspect. Don't do the things they recommend, you could get into a pack of trouble. Evidently, the Schneider is in a pack of trouble. Transfers of funds to foreign accounts are especially dangerous with the recent passage of the patriot act. Some of the other advice in this book is downright silly. Assuming you're not a terrorist, why would anyone carry large sums of money while traveling when you can use an ATM card? This book is not only worthless, it's dangerous.

Format: Hardcover
Excellent book if you need to know how to protect your identity, assets and any other valuable items that are in your possession. The book mentions that "almost everyone has something to conceal", and I am a firm believer in that. Whether you've got assets or just a hard working middle class person, we all have our identities.
The author also mentions how to legally move your assets and protect yourself from creditors or others who would want to know if you have anything of value to take. Timing is of utmost importance when performing such tasks. Moving your assets when there is a pending lawsuit, is fraud. But moving and planning well before any type of litigation is started, is perfectly legal and wise.
What I like about the book the best is that, the author doesn't hold any punches back. Although he mentions certain aspects of hiding is illegal, he still mentions tactics that you must do to keep it a secret. These tactics become invaluable, if you are on the other "side of the fence" looking for hidden assets! What I didn't really care for, is the amount of attention that the author gave to hiding money "around the house" if you may.
Although I believe this is just as important as using more sophisticated techniques, I felt they devoted a little too much time talking about hiding your money in shower post or under a rock.
Other than that, the book was really a good foundation on "hiding your money".

Don't waste your money.

The author is a sham artist. He was convicted, and in a plea bargain handed over his entire client list to the US Governtment. None of the advice in this book is legal or legitimate.

Format: Hardcover
This book extols the virtues of offshore bank accounts and gives tips on how to physically hide money while traveling. It also discusses ways to hide your financial assets from creditors and spouses. Much of their information is worthless. For example with ATM and credit cards you don't need to carry much cash while traveling. In fact you get a much better rate using your ATM card than converting your cash into a foreign currency as you travel. There is little need to carry large sums of cash while traveling, and therefore no need to hide it your hotel room in the shower curtain pole. Duh!
The book also discusses ways to hide your assets of dubious validity. For example the authors recommend a non-interest bearing check accounts as a way of concealing assets. They advise opening accounts without giving the bank a social security number. No! Banks will not open an account without an SS number. Moreover, it is easy to locate any bank account in the US if you know the SS number of the person holding the account. The authors discuss hiding assets in a divorce. No! This is a fraud on the court and could have serious legal consequences. They talk about pre-nuptial contracts seemingly unaware that the parties must make a full disclosure of all their assets in the contract. To do otherwise is to risk having the contract declared invalid. They also don't seem to understand the concept of a fraudulent conveyance as in transferring your assets to someone and then declaring bankruptcy. No! This is a crime. Don't do it.
I don't understand their lust for foreign bank accounts. You must disclose any accounts over $10,000. You must pay taxes on all income derived through a foreign bank account. To do otherwise is illegal tax evasion. What is the big advantage of a foreign bank account anyway? Not much.
