Product Description:
Identity Theft follows Stanford professor Debra Meyerson's journey to recover from a severe stroke that initially left her physically incapacitated and unable to speak. In addition to providing realistic expectations for the hard work needed to regain everyday capabilities, Meyerson focuses on the less frequently documented emotional journey in recovery. Virtually every survivor is haunted by questions like: "Who am I now?" and "How do I rebuild a meaningful and rewarding life?" after losing so much of what they had before--capabilities, careers and jobs, relationships, and more. This is a book full of hope for survivors--from stroke or other injuries--as well as their families and support networks.

All author proceeds from this book will go to Stroke-Forward.org, a nonprofit initiative that will support stroke and other survivors, and advocate for a more human-centered approach to health care.

Identity Theft centers on Debra's experience: her stroke, her extraordinary efforts to recover, and her journey to redefine herself. But she also draws on her skills as a social scientist, sharing stories from several dozen fellow survivors, family members, friends, colleagues, therapists, and doctors she has met and interviewed. By sharing this diversity of experiences, Debra highlights how every person is different, every stroke is different, and every recovery is different. She provides a valuable look at the broad possibilities for successfully navigating the challenging physical recovery--and the equally difficult emotional journey toward rebuilding one's identity and a rewarding life after a trauma like stroke.

Product Description:
Who am I? It's a question we all ask ourselves at some point. Depending on the season we focus our identity on our job performance, marital status, personality type, or social network, among other options. However, there's a larger question to consider. Who does the Bible tell me I am in Christ? From the wisdom and perspective of insightful authors-including Jen Wilkin, Hannah Anderson, and Jen Pollock Michel-we'll seek to answer this question by: Exposing our false notions of identity; Understanding the biblical truth of our identity in Christ; and Reflecting on what it looks like to live in our new (and true) identity. In 10 chapters we'll cover everything from our identity as children of God to citizens of heaven. At the end of each chapter, study questions will facilitate group discussion as you consider this glorious truth with your friends. Join us as we explore how knowing who we are in Christ changes every aspect of our lives.

Product Description:

Protect yourself from identity theft!  Nearly 17 million Americans were victimized by identity theft in 2012 alone: for 13 straight years, it has been America's #1 consumer crime. No one is immune: children, the elderly and even the dead have been victimized. Identity theft can be high-tech, low-tech, or even no tech, via "dumpster diving." You're vulnerable, and you need to act.

 

Fortunately, you can take practical steps to safeguard your identity right now. In Identity Theft Alert , award-winning author and attorney Steve Weisman shows you exactly what  to do, and how to do it. Equally important, he also tells you what to stop doing: the common, inadvertent behaviors that could be setting you up as a victim.

 

Weisman starts with a clear-eyed assessment of the problem, helping you understand just how much risk you face. Next, he helps you understand, anticipate, and prevent all these frightening forms of identity theft:

  • Identity theft via Facebook and other social media
  • Identity theft via your iPhone or Android smartphone
  • Theft of your credit or debit cards, and other access to your finances
  • Crime sprees performed in your name
  • Medical identity theft that could lead to you getting the wrong treatment – and could even kill you
  • The fast-growing scourge of income tax identity theft, including stolen refunds

Don't be the next victim: read this book, follow its step-by-step advice, and protect yourself!

Product Description:
Identity theft. We all know the damage it inflicts---or do we? There's a kind of identity theft that goes far deeper than our financial records. It impoverishes our souls and keeps us from experiencing the richness in life God intends for us. Have you been ... * Robbed by Relationships? * Mugged by the Mirror? * Stolen by Success? * Pickpocketed by the Past? Mike Breaux exposes the four 'identity thieves' that steal our sense of who we truly are and render our lives diminished versions of what they were intended to be. We were never meant to be chameleons, changing into whatever we need to be in order to gain love and acceptance. We were created for more---much more---than the way we look, what we accomplish or fail to accomplish, and the sum of our past rejections, failures, and wounds. The good news is that no matter how they were stolen, our identities are retrievable. With trademark humor, compelling stories, and down-to-earth wisdom, Mike Breaux shows how we can reclaim our deep, God-given identities and live freely, purposefully, and joyously out of a renewed knowledge of who we truly are.

Product Description:
In 2016, my identity was stolen. And, if you were to ask me to describe the worst time of my life, this book would sum it up. In fact, this guide was born from it.We’re all afraid of being hacked, and one of our worst fears is to be violated, swindled, and impersonated. I have first-hand experience of this nightmare and proof of the validity of that fear. It swallowed me whole, ground me to pieces, and opened my eyes to just how vulnerable we truly are. However, it also filled me with a burning passion for helping others prevent—or recover—from that same horrifying ordeal. We’re fighting a cyber war for our information; and although we’ve always had armor around our cities, homes, and ourselves, it’s time to be proactive about securing our data as well. So, in Hacked: How I Recovered From Identity Theft, you’ll learn to recognize the signs of being hacked, how to counter an attack, and how to prevent them in the first place, while discovering practical tactics and strategies to support you in becoming a victor… and not a victim.

Released: 2016-10-25
Kindle Edition (242 pages)

Hack-Proof Your Life Now!: The New Cybersecurity Rules: Protect your email, computers, and bank accounts from hacks, malware, and identity theft
 
Product Description:
Everyone is vulnerable to a cyber attack. Regardless of your age and station in life, one simple click of the mouse can open a Pandora's Box few of us could have imagined even five years ago.

How we handle our online security is critical to protecting our personal and professional lives. But guidance for staying safe in the growing, interconnected world has been fragmented and confusing...until now.

Hack-Proof Your Life Now! demystifies the topic and introduces you to the New Cybersecurity Rules clear, sensible, and do-able actions that will quickly improve your security.

Authors Sean M. Bailey and Devin Kropp will show you how to measure your Cybersecurity Score and then teach you to improve your safety by acting in three areas: adding more Secrecy to your online life (such as a banking-only email address that hackers won't likely discover), becoming Omniscient over your financial affairs (so you can block identity theft and instantly spot fraud), and adopting principles of Mindfulness to stay safe every day (such as using their 10-Second EMAIL rule to spot dangerous blackmail spam).

Each chapter features a Hack Report story that demonstrates a key security problem many of us face, a New Cybersecurity Rule that reduces or closes that exposure, and a specific Action Step to apply as you build up your defenses and improve your cybersecurity score. An Action Guide in the back provides extra details and helpful resources.

In just a few hours, you can learn to hack-proof your life and fight back against hackers, thieves, and spammers.

Product Description:
Identity Theft Victim: Help & Support After the Crime provides REAL answers for victims of America's fastest growing crime who are crying out for sensible, unambiguous and reality-based assistance. This refreshingly pragmatic book speaks to victims weighed down by ineffective advice, vague responses and no solution attitudes. It acknowledges creditors' 'guilty until proven innocent' mind-sets and a society that gives thieves, impostors and con artists a mere slap-on- the-wrist. Identity Theft Victim: Help & Support After the Crime provides insight, knowledge and answers to real issues and circumstances facing today's identity theft victims. Quickly distinguishing itself from the pack of identity theft books, it unabashedly acknowledges the sad but true fact that identity fraud victims typically find themselves victimized twice, once by their impostor and then again by the present system! Under this known but seldom discussed reality, Identity Theft Victim offers support and the tools for victims to work within a system that is presently antiquated, overwhelmed and impractical.Written by a former identity theft victim in response to numerous requests to share her story, her experience and her success, Ms. White meticulously details the practical plan that turned her agony into answers and her trauma into triumph. Most importantly, Identity Theft Victim: Help & Support After the Crime fulfills the promise of providing victims with the knowledge, assistance, support and strategies to help them prove their innocence and victim status along with important organizations, contacts, sample letters and the tools that change panic and procrastination--into unrelenting persistence and perseverance!
