5.0 out of 5 stars A chilling, brilliant and helpful account of violence, 1 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Gift of Fear (Paperback)
As cliched as this might sound, this is a must read book, even you don't particularly enjoy the self-type genre much. Gavin De Becker has written an excellent account of violence and what propels men into such hideous acts of madness. How to deal with angry (fired)employees, battering husbands, why 'no' is a word that muct be final.. De Becker deals with all these issues and more.
De Becker is a security expert, who has dealt with Presidents and media figures. His prescriptions for a violent world as pragmatic and applicable. Partly because he is an excellent communicator of concepts and partly because he does not lecture- he has, after all been on the receiving end of such behaviour. It is mainly directed to women - they are the biggest beneficiary of such acts - but it provides valuable insights for men too.
