Becker has a lot to say based on his vast investigative experience --- "true fear is often a signal that can save your life." This is the premise and many true story examples are given. I loved the book, and I learned some practical survival signals that may help protect me in the future. A great read, could not put it down, recommended it to everyone.

This is an incredible book. I've recommended it to many people, and I'm happy to ship mine to somebody in order to share it. It's key premise is not to be afraid of your own fear, but to utilize it, a lesson De Becker teaches well. Every woman would benefit from this book, as well as law enforcement officials looking to understand high tension situations better.
