It's not often that a book truly grabs me and begs to be read. I find plenty of books that are fascinating but when I came across, "How to Hide: A Practical Guide to Vanishing and Taking Your Assets with You", my curiosity got the best of me and I just had to read it. While I'd never considered disappearing, I found the premise absolutely intriguing. Even if you are perfectly happy with your life the way it is, I guarantee you'll take a second glance at this book.

"How to Hide" is essentially a how-to guide for completely leaving your current life behind and going somewhere else to start all over. Author David Wilkening gives plenty of potential reasons some may feel this is their only course of action - divorce, abuse, witnessing a crime and feeling unsafe or vulnerable, etc. From the very beginning, Wilkening takes the responsible route with a number of disclaimers. He notes several times that the steps in the book are not for those looking to commit illegal acts or trying to get out of paying their bills. He further discusses the negative effects a disappearance might have on those left behind. In fact, the first 34 pages are dedicated to these disclaimers, possible repercussions with jilted loved ones, and the overall seriousness of disappearing. He makes it crystal clear that hiding is not a subject to be taken lightly.

After reading "How to Hide" I realized it wasn't exactly what I thought it would be, specifically with regard to `assets'. I define `assets' as anything of value - cars, boats, homes, investment accounts, etc. So `taking your assets with you' by this definition would mean a way to maintain ownership of these items when disappearing.

How to Hide, by David Wilkening, is, as described on the book's cover, "a practical guide to vanishing and taking your assets with you." The book teaches to disappear, going through excruciating and near heartbreaking detail on how to do it. Everything is planned out, from the first thought, to the final step. The book asks why one would want to disappear, then jumps right into planning the escape, stressing the importance of keeping all of one's legal documents in order and close by, finding a new identity and deciding where to go. The book maintains the importance of keeping one's finances intact throughout. The book explores even the most extreme cases of hiding as well, touching on altering one's appearance and state of mind, finding a new job, keeping one's new identity safe, and how to handle police and private investigators. The book is perfect for anyone looking to escape in a practical and clever way.

Format: Paperback
"How to Hide: A Practical Guide to Vanishing and Taking Your Assets With You" by David Wilkening is a complete reference guide for anyone wishing to disappear from their current life and take with them the means to live their new life without missing a beat. Wilkening lays out in great detail how a person might arrange to disappear legally from their current life without attracting attention. He is very clear that doing so illegally is never advisable. Wilkening goes into great detail regarding how to set up a new identity, a new bank account, employment, where the best places are for relocating and even the best ways to get there. Wilkening also provides insight into how to avoid investigators, both private and governmental, which may be looking for you after you have disappeared. I learned a few things I did not know.

Format: Paperback
How to Hide, A Practical Guide to Vanishing and Taking Your Assets with You is a straight-forward, well-thought-out read. Why would people want to hide? Is it the right decision to make? Both good questions - which the author breaks down in fascinating detail. The book is a "how to hide" primer, detailing everything from why people vanish (abuse, money issues, illness) to check-lists on how to start, where to go, what to bring, and what to leave (and not leave) behind - all with their vital assets in tow. If you have many assets that can be converted to cash, for example, you are way ahead of the game. If not, it will be more difficult to begin anew but not impossible. All in all an interesting and intriguing book on an elusive subject.
