    Gavin de Becker is a three-time presidential appointee whose pioneering work has changed the way our government evaluates threats to our nation's highest officials. His firm advises many of the world's most prominent media figures, corporations, and law enforcement agencies on predicting violence, and it also serves regular citizens who are victims of domestic abuse and stalking. De Becker has advised the prosecution on major cases, including the O.J. Simpson murder trial. He has testified before many legislative bodies and has successfully proposed new laws to help manage violence.
    True fear is a gift.
    Unwarranted fear is a curse.
    Learn how to tell the difference.

    A date won't take "no" for an answer. The new nanny gives a mother an uneasy feeling. A stranger in a deserted parking lot offers unsolicited help. The threat of violence surrounds us every day. But wecan protect ourselves, by learning to trust—and act on—our gut instincts.

Learn to spot the danger signals others miss. It might just save your life.

    • The Gift of Fear

      This is a very good book and everyone needs to read it. It will help anyone be more aware of their surroundings, listen to your gut feeings more, etc. If things just don't feel right, something is bothering you about a situtation, like going to your car, home, apartment and you can't figure it out. Your basic instinct has kicked in, listen to it, it's trying to tell you something is wrong. That is why this book is so good to have and read.

    • This book is an invaluable tool for anyone concerned for their own safety, or responsible for the safety of others. I think it should be a must read for all WOMEN, all parents, and the information extrapolated for high school students of both genders.
