has anyone out there read a book called [link=http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.co.uk%2FGift-Fear-Survival-Signals-Violence%2Fdp%2F0440226198%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1207603176%26sr%3D8-1&tag=ultim8jj-21&linkCode=ur2&camp=1634&creative=6738]The Gift of Fear[/link] by Gavin De Becker (the spelling might not be correct, but it's close).
It is a superb book - covers everything from trusting your intuition to recognising real danger, to dealing with threats, to dealing with stalkers, to hiring babysitters, to recognising signs of imminent attack.
Brilliantly and simply written by a man who has helped change Domestic Violence laws in the U.S. and has been there, seen it and done it.
I was advised to read it by my good friend Dik Chance (who is a major player in the F.A.S.T. Defence programme)and he was right. I have strongly urged every student of mine (and every family member too) to buy it and read it as soon as possible.
Hope you like it.
Love and respect,
