As an 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. A useful book for women living alone, parents who are concerned about their children's safety, and employers worried about employees who might go postal.

I was expecting a more academic approach, but this was still interesting. It was like a 150 page pamphlet about personal safety and risk assessment. Although it wasn't what I expected, I'd still recommend it.
