When I got this book, I really had high hopes and within the week I got it, I had read it entirely. I then re-read it because I couldn't believe that there was so little usefull information contained in the pages. Surely I had to be missing something. But alas, I was not, there simply was no substance in the book. The only thing I got out of this book is that I learned a little more about the social security number and how it is made up, but even that takes up very little space, and really isn't worth the price of the book alone. As for walking me through what I can do to change my identity, the author is maddenling vague and not at all detail oriented. Sorry to dis your book Sheldon, I really am, but the bottom line is, your money can be better spent somewhere else.
