• A stranger in a deserted parking lot offers to help carry a woman's groceries. Is he a good Samaritan or is he after something else? • A fired employee says, ''You'll be sorry.'' Will he return with a gun? • After their first date, a man tells a woman it is their ''destiny'' to be together. What will he do when she rejects him? • A mother has an uneasy feeling about the nice baby-sitter she's just hired. Should she cancel her plans? • A man is threatened by his girlfriend's angry ex-husband. Should he go to the police? We all know there are plenty of reasons to fear people from time to time. The question is, what are those times? Gavin de Becker, the nation's leading expert on predicting violent behavior, proves that we are all qualified to answer life's highest-stakes questions. ''True fear is a gift,'' he says, ''because it is a survival signal that sounds only in the presence of danger.'' In this extraordinary, groundbreaking book, de Becker shows that you can already predict violent behavior. Through dozens of compelling stories from his own career, he lays out the pieces of the human violence puzzle and shows how you can solve it by paying attention to the subtle-and sometimes blatant-signals of intuition. Gavin de Becker pioneering work has changed the way our government evaluates threats to our nation's highest officials. His firm advises many of the world's most prominent media figures, corporations, and law enforcement agencies on predicting violence, and it also serves regular citizens who are victims of domestic abuse and stalking. 1.
