Shattering the myth that most violent acts are unpredictable, de Becker, whose clients include top Hollywood stars and government agencies, offers specific ways to protect yourself and those you love, including...how to act when approached by a stranger...when you should fear someone close to you...what to do if you are being stalked...how to uncover the source of anonymous threats or phone calls...the biggest mistake you can make with a threatening person...and more. Learn to spot the danger signals others miss. It might just save your life.
Through dozens of compelling examples from his own career, security expert Gavin de Becker teaches readers how to read the signs of impending danger by using their most basic - but often discouraged - survival skill: intuition. This book provides a unique combination of practical guidance on leading a safer life and profound insight into human behaviour.
