5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for all parents!, 28 Jan. 2008
By 
This review is from: Predators: Pedophiles, Rapists, and Other Sex Offenders (Paperback)
The title of this book is not one that jumps out at you and says read me, as it is a book that casts light on a dark area of society, one that most prefer to ignore or shut out. Unfortunately, that plays straight in to the hands of the predators, whom we wish never to have to deal with. But the phenomenon is real enough and Gavin de Becker gives some startling statistics in the foreword to the book: The Justice department estimates that there is one child molester per square mile in the US.

And the problem is that they don't look any different from the rest of the population.

As Anna Salter says: "In short, there may be little harm in holding generalized expectations that the world will treat us well - so long as we prepare for a world that may not."

She does a great job at describing what these predators in our midst look for and how they operate, which is essential knowledge in order to take steps to minimise risks of ever encountering one.

I would recommend this book to any parent as the practical advice given therein can be what stops your child from being a victim of one of these predators. Knowledge does protect!
