If it were possible to give a negative rating, I certainly would have. This abridged version does not offer a fair representation of the actual book. I was hoping that the audible version would be useful in reinforcing the information contained in the actual book but it truly does not do so. DO NOT WASTE A CREDIT OR YOUR MONEY on this version of the book.
Realizing that your fear can be a good thing and to not be afraid of everything.
Being able to ralize whrn yor fear is helping you.
Listen to you fear signals.Don't let worrying distract you from fear.
This book should be required listening in shelters and help centers.
Women in our society have been taught the importance of being polite. In this book Gavin describes why being polite and not trusting our intuition can cost us our lives. He offer suggestions for how women can keep form being victims. I only wish this book was available in an unabridged format. I have now purchased the book to read.
Some parts seem to put me in a lull, but also some very interesting information about stalkers and how accurate we are at detecting when something is wrong. I think this is a must for those that have difficulty trusting their intuition. I enjoyed that the author about "satellites"-details that do not match, it gives great information about how to interview somebody who is in possible danger. This can be a great tool for those in the criminal justice system and counseling.
It has been a goal of mine for years to trust my intuition more and after reading this, I intend to practice doing so, even more intently.
Your 1st response is usually the right one. Have you heard that about test-taking?
Gavin de Becker presents important information in a way that is absolutely captivating. I highly encourage everyone to read it - women especially, but everyone can use this. It really helped me to consider how much I do or do not listen to my gut instincts and helps to understand exactly what gut instincts are. I have listened to this audiobook repetitively and encouraged many people in my life to do the same. Worth every dime and more.
This book was great packed full with great information and story examples which made it a easy listen
I enjoyed the idea that this was the voice of the actual individual who wrote the book and had the personal experiences
All of the intuition based thinking and not suppressing fear!
Great book short listen and packed full of information
the authors insite to human behavior
To be aware and not a victim
I have bought this book in print for friends over 15 times but now in audible form for my sister who does not like to read.
This is a decent book... not quite what I was expecting, but I still find the information quite fascinating. I think its worth a listen or read, especially if you are a female.
The audio quality of this book is very bad. Its kind of muffled.
