I wrote Privacy-Enhanced Business to give corporate officers, students, and the interested public important insights into how privacy impacts international commerce. Every situation is different and requires a lawyer's advice as to how particular laws affect a firm's operations, but Privacy-Enhanced Business gives executives and analysts the information they need to ask the right questions and understand the answers.

On May 29, 2001, a reviewer from the Harvard Business School's Working Knowledge newsletter said "[Privacy-Enhanced Business] is a fair and thoughtful look at the way privacy will, at last, invade our lives."

On August 29, 2001, called Privacy-Enhanced Business "required reading" for customer relationship managers.
