What It Takes to Disappear - 3rd Edition
"My Successes and Failures While Making People Disappear"
Michael Bazzell has helped hundreds of celebrities, billionaires, and everyday citizens disappear completely from public view. He is now known in Hollywood as the guy that “fixes” things. His previous books about privacy were mostly REACTIVE and he focused on ways to hide information, clean up an online presence, and sanitize public records to avoid unwanted exposure. This 635-page textbook is PROACTIVE. It is about starting over. It is the complete guide that he would give to any new client in an extreme situation. It leaves nothing out and provides explicit details of every step he takes to make someone completely disappear, including legal documents and a chronological order of events. The information shared in this book is based on real experiences with his actual clients, and is unlike any content ever released in his other books. The stories are all true, with the exception of changed names, locations, and minor details in order to protect the privacy of those described. For many, this is the only privacy manual needed to secure a new digital life.

Please Note: We do not sell books directly, and we carry no stock. Many readers report the ability to order copies from local book stores. We have no control over distribution. Unfortunately, most POD distributors refuse to print a book of this size.
An e-book version of this release is not currently available. This is due to many reasons, including rampant piracy, counterfeit e-book sales, Kindle tracking, exclusivity requirements, and unpredictable content removal from Amazon. These reasons have convinced us to stay out of the e-book market. We believe this book is better served as a printed reference manual.
