Becker is a professional at predicting violent behavior based upon a person's actions, vocabulary, and means of coming on (especially) to a woman. The gift of fear is that feeling or intuition that makes someone feel uncomfortable or unsafe in a situation. This is excellent reading with great advice for girls and women (but valuable to all) as many illustrations and stories are given to illustrate his points. I bought it for all the women in my life as a means of making them aware of dangerous situations that they may have overlooked in the past.
Gavin DeBecker's "Gift of Fear" is definitely a must read for everyone...This book has scads of examples, facts, etc., that one needs in order to gain knowledge of how dangerous situations happen, and how one can perhaps avoid these situations.
I keep re-reading this book. It contains such a wealth of information and advice, and is very well written. Anyone who experiences fear at any level must read this book! It offers tips and tools, as well as sound advice on being smart about how you deal with fear.
I heard about this book on Glen Beck. I'm glad I found it. I've never seen another book like it, that addresses the issue of personal safety and what you can do to increase your protection.
The author owns a Security Co. with celebrity clients, politicians, etc. and really knows his stuff.
This book was full of useful information. If you enjoyed reading " The Gift of Fear you will enjoy reading Gavin De Beckers new book " Just 2 Seconds". I was intrigued by the title ?Just 2 Seconds? and having read DeBecker's "Gift of Fear" couldn't wait to read his insights on this fascinating subject. "Just 2 Seconds" did not disappoint. Within a few sentences, I found myself hooked. This book provides numerous insights on protecting public figures. I've recommended this book to many friends and each has agreed with my assessment. If you're in the protection, security, or law enforcement business, this book is a MUST HAVE! Gavin de Becker, Tom Taylor and Jeff Marquart understand the topic and present the material in a way that the reader can easily understand and digest!
