Titles about online privacy walk a fine line between warning of very real risks and fostering hysteria about unlikely or impossible scenarios. Internet Privacy succeeds admirably. Its balanced tone and practical advice on the protecting yourself and your computer from Internet-borne threats, ranging from virus infection to identify theft, make it useful to beginning to intermediate computer folk. It also includes valuable tips on preserving offline electronic privacy, carrying these protective practices into daily activities. Naked comes from the opposite direction, teaching readers how and where to find personal information (from death records to credit records) online. This knowledge, however, can help them prevent others from finding and/or misusing their information, making this a valuable guide for both researchers and general readers. It highlights valuable legal uses of online pers onal information (including genealogical research and locating lost loved ones) while also addressing privacy concerns. Both are recommended for all public libraries. (Library Journal, February 2003)
