About the Author
Dr Ian Oliver is a privacy officer and software engineer specialising in the construction of information systems with privacy as an inherent property. He has taken ideas from safety-critical systems development, aviation and medicine to better comprehend, understand and formalise an engineering approach that unifies the legal and engineering aspects of privacy together to make privacy relevant and implementable to the practising software engineer. He currently works for Nokia Networks and holds a Research Fellow position at the University of Brighton working with the Visual Modelling Group on diagrammatic forms of reasoning, description logics with the occasional foray into category theory. Prior to that as the privacy officer for Here and Nokia Services, and for eleven years at Nokia Research Centre working with Semantic Web, UML, formal methods and hardware-software co-design. He has also worked at Helsinki University of Technology and Aalto University teaching formal methods and modelling with UML. He holds 30 patents in areas such as The Internet of Things, semantic technologies and privacy. Ian lives in Sipoo, Finland with his wife, two children, dog and cat.

First, I ordered the Kindle version (to be read in my computer's Kindle app), and, frankly, it's very difficult to read. The tables are un-readable, the caption for the images (and tables) don't align, footnotes can be placed in different pages (the size of the computer Kindle app has a great impact on location of footnotes and captions). It is very frustrating to read the Kindle version.
Second, I ended up purchasing the print version too, and was planning to returning my Kindle version. Although, the presentation is by far much better than that of the Kindle, the figures within the print version are very hard to read. The figures and the font within them are very small. Now, when I need to look in detail at a figure, I open my Kindle version.
Lastly, it seems like there was no editing done on the book. If it wasn't because the book's content is presented in an easy to follow manner, I would get lost with many of the sentences. From my perspective, the first two issues are tolerable, but the poor editing (or lack of) is far more disappointing. Maybe a good editing may have prevented the first two issues.
Dr. Oliver has both academic AND practical experience building and governing information infrastructures at scale. In Privacy Engineerig, he breaks down some of the complexity to create repeatable and understandable processes.
While this is only a beach read for the truly dedicated information governance professional, Privacy Engineering is a page turner for anyone with the courage to call themselves a privacy professional.
Bravo & well done! Wish I'd written it myself.
