Publisher Description

Fear can't help you in a dangerous situation. A former FBI profiler shows you what can.
As one of the world's top experts on psychopathy and criminal behavior, Mary Ellen O'Toole has seen repeatedly how relying on the sense of fear alone often fails to protect us from danger. Whether you are opening the door to a stranger or meeting a date you connected with online, you need to know how to protect yourself from harm-physical, financial, legal, and professional.

Using the SMART method, which O'Toole developed and used at the FBI, we can confidently know how to:
Respond to a threat in any situation Hire someone who will work inside your home like a contractor or housekeeper Figure out whether a prospective employee is a safe bet Know whom you can trust with your children
An especially useful book for women living alone, parents who are concerned about their children's safety, and employers worried about employees who might go postal, Dangerous Instincts gives us the tools used by professionals to navigate potentially hazardous waters. Like The Gift of Fear and The Sociopath Next Door, it will appeal to anyone looking to make the right call in an ever threatening world.

Dangerous instincts

I really don't enjoy reading but this was a book that I could not put down. Very informative, well written and easy to understand .

BoscoMischief ,

Deadly Instincts, how gut feelings betray us

This book contained little useful information, recycled continually throughout the chapters. I was disappointed to have paid for over a thousand pages of info when the relevant points could have fit in half that if even.
