A stranger in a deserted parking lot offers unsolicited help. The threat of violence surrounds us every day. But we can protect ourselves, by learning to trust--and act on--our gut instincts.

This was a very informative and interesting read, if not very enjoyable. I do feel a bit safer knowing the warning signs to look for, and I would recommend it to everyone. ( )

This book provides a good model of how to think about personal security, especially as a more vulnerable person (woman, etc). The author has primarily done celebrity/executive protection, and his company is basically the gold standard in this protection. He presents a coherent model of violence and risk indicators, and overall does a great job of both not seeming like an excessive self promoter and presenting information in ways which are actually helpful to most readers.

One thing I disagree with him on is his fairly leftist anti-gun message (dressed up as "bullet control" rather than gun control), but I wasn't reading this book for his interpretation of 2A. ( )

This book is terrible.
99.98% fluff

Mr. Becker wrote 400 pages of fluff that could be condensed into less than 100 pages.

The lasting premise of this book is that fear is a valuable asset to have.

The only new thing I learned is that most crime happens in the victims' inner circle.
The author rants that women get abused because they don't act on their primitive instinct that is fear.

Mr. Becker paints the primitive instinct in a holy light, like good v. evil, primitive fear is life/death so it should be utilized at any moment that elicits or triggers a sense of fear.

Mr. Becker does not consider the bad aspects of fear. Primitive fear can sometimes lead to bad consequences. People need not act on every fear instinct.

I would not recommend this book to any person because reading this book has too much fluff. ( )

I would recommend this book to most people, especially young men and women. It was a thought-provoking read and led to some interesting analysis of my past relationships and experiences. ( )

If you read de Becker's book, you will understand why you must never ignore the tiny flickers of doubt...he lays out his strategies, some of them controversial, for demystifying, defusing and predicting violence.

A modern-day survival manual for everyone in our society, uniquely and firmly founded on Gavin de Becker's extensive experiences, and on his own life. This book contains wisdom that transcends traditional approaches to violence.

Gavin de Becker's brilliant insights and encyclopedic familiarity with the minds of criminals have made powerful contributions to the successful prosecution of many cases, including mine, and now he shares that knowledge with his readers.
