The Gift of Fear

 


The Gift of Fear: Survival Signals That Protect Us from Violence
by Gavin De Becker
Hardcover, 304 pages
Published by Little Brown & Company
Publication date: June 1997

Amazon.com: Gavin de Becker, security consultant to the stars, says: "True fear is a survival signal." That little voice inside you saying, "I shouldn't get in the elevator with that guy," is more often right than wrong and might save your life. Nothing about human behavior is random, says the author, and thus behavior can be predicted--including the most "senseless" acts of violence. De Becker argues that we are all experts at reading human behavior. Unlike the rest of us, however, de Becker is the product of a violent home and can explain how to improve these skills even further. The Gift of Fear, a real cavalcade of mayhem, discusses domestic violence, stalking, workplace violence, parricide, and assassins. But as terrifying and disheartening as the book can be, its ultimate goal is positive: to give us more faith in our ability to predict danger, along with specific tools to defuse or (even better) avoid dangerous situations. Confident in our ability to protect ourselves, we can use fear, and not--as so many of us are--be ruled by it.


I Know You Really Love Me I Know You Really Love Me:
A Psychiatrist's Journal of Erotomania, Stalking, and Obsessive Love

by Doreen R. Orion
Hardcover, 312 pages
Published by MacMillan General Reference
Publication date: June 1997

The author, Doreen Orion, 08/02/97 (from Amazon.com): Thanks to readers for your wonderful responses. When I wrote this book, I envisioned stalking victims walking into bookstores (or surfing the web) desperately looking for the help I couldn't find when I needed it. The many responses I have received from victims who say they have found that help in "I Know You Really Love Me," is terribly gratifying.

I was surprised, however, at the tremendous interest by people who have never been stalked. Maybe they are captivated by the many celebrity cases I include from Madonna to Cher to David Letterman. Maybe they are attracted to the bizarre stories that can happen to anyone - from the department store manager who smiled at a customer and had to eventually leave the country because of her persistent pursuit, to the man who followed his victim from one state to another, moved to an apartment down the hall, and tunneled into her bathroom.

Whatever the reasons, people seem to be fascinated, and I'm glad. In the U.S., 1,000,000 women and 400,000 men are stalked every year. The only way we are going to help these victims is by educating police, prosecutors, judges and ourselves. Although it has been rather unsettling to be featured in People Magazine, in AP and Gannett News articles and on Larry King (with Gavin de Becker who wrote a lovely review of my book for Amazon -thank you, Mr. de Becker) when all I have wanted is privacy for the last eight years, I am buoyed by the knowledge that my book has made a difference. As Tina Sinatra wrote on the back cover, "I urge everyone to join the fight!"

About the Author: Doreen Orion, MD is a board-certified psychiatrist in private practice in Colorado. She is also on the faculty of the psychiatry department at the University of Colorado's medical school. She lectures extensively on various psychiatric topics, including erotomania and stalking.

Surviving a Stalker: Everything You Need to Know to Keep Yourself Safe
by Linden Gross, Gavin De Becker
Paperback: 304 pages
Published by Marlowe & Co
Publication date: August 29, 2000
ISBN: 1569246041

Most people believe that stalkers only target the rich and famous, not the average citizen. The truth is, stalking is one of the most prevalent yet overlooked forms of domestic violence in America today, with an estimated 1.4 million people nationwide stalked each year. And that figure does not even include the rising number of people being harassed on the Internet.
Surviving a Stalker, the ultimate practical guidebook to surviving stalking, provides all the necessary tools you need to handle obsessive attention and to regain control of your life. Journalist and stalking expert Linden Gross offers a wealth of invaluable guidance, including:

* How to recognize and control those natural reactions that might put you at risk; * How to handle inappropriate attention on- and off-line and break the stalking cycle; * How to protect your privacy and safety as well as that of your loved ones.

Gross explains how these dangerous obsessions begin, the patterns they take, and what potential victims can do before the nightmare becomes a reality. Through a multitude of case studies, medical and other professionals who deal with stalking will gain a clearer understanding of the crime, the toll it takes, and how to handle it. Surviving a Stalker will help all victims, as well as potential victims, keep themselves safe and be a vital resource for all professionals who counsel them.
