The Gift of Fear: Survival Signals That Protect Us from Violence - Gavin de Becker This book is a must read.
Bottom line? Listen to yourself. When someone, a situation, anything doesn't feel right it's because it isn't.

It's very tough to read too, there are some stories that are absolutly heartbreaking and some situations could have been avoided had security and those "in charge" been more careful. It's not sensationalistic tough. It's real and it hurts.

This book is not about "how women should protect themselves when attacked" it's about how the whole of society should work together to first, avoid creating the kind of people who would hurt others and second, to keep away those people once created and make a safe environment for the rest.

If you can read this book, do so. You will not regret it.
