The Gift of Fear: Survival Signals That Protect Us From Violence/Gavin De Becker
This should be required reading for every woman.
Gavin De Becker learned how to be on the lookout for trouble through a difficult childhood. He uses what he learned then and expanded his knowledge to help people now. When I read it the first time, my face burned because he described to a “T” different ways I’d been conned by people who were close to me, dates, and even how I got bilked out of money in a supermarket parking lot.
In De Becker’s chapters, he tells you how to interpret threats, how predators take advantage of your good nature to harm you, dealing with people who won’t let go, sate stalking and violence in the workplace.
