Publisher's Summary

Gavin de Becker, author of the best seller The Gift of Fear, is America's foremost authority on managing violent behavior. In this time of great anxiety and uncertainty, his guidance is needed more than ever.

De Becker addresses the concerns many have asked since the terrifying events of September 11, 2001. Is air travel safe? Are we at risk of chemical or biological weapons attacks? Can further acts be prevented by our government and military? How should parents discuss these concerns with their children? These and other vital questions are answered with the expertise only de Becker can bring to the table. A reassuring, empowering guide, Fear Less offers specific recommendations for improving the security of our nation and ourselves.

Narrator Tom Stechschulte lends his comforting voice to this crucial book.

The way things really are

Should be required reading for every American. Common sense approach to interpret our place in the world yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Useful information even in 2015.

The author offers a reasoned approach to dealing with fear of both our own creation and that of the media. Even in 2015, 14 years after September 11th, the information is still as applicable today as the day it was written.
