Fear can save your life. It directs you to avoid that stranger, to leave the room, to call for help. The intuitive message of fear, together with rational principles, can help you to predict and thereby avoid personal violence. In this program Gavin de Becker, America's leading expert on predicting violent behavior, demystifies the apparently random and unpredictable nature of violence and shows you how interpersonal violence can be detected and derailed. De Becker's clients include celebrities, corporations, and political organizations, and he serves as an adviser to the CIA and the U.S. Supreme Court. Download and start listening now!

    " It is full of useful information and staggering statistics. It is also full of horror stories, so if you're at all anxious about such things it is probably not a good bedtime read. On the other hand, he makes the point very well that worry and fear are very different things and worrying is the kind of activity you engage in when you're not experiencing fear. The writing/editing was a little disappointing, but it certainly is compelling. "

    " It was such an interesting book and I think it's a book that everyone should read. We need to relearn how to listen to our basic intuition instead of always being afraid. "

    " I read this book years ago and am re-reading it. Has some great information on how to keep safe and more importantly, aware! Great book for women. "

    " Good, but repetitive. Maybe that was necessary, though. "
