Anyone who's been the victim of unwanted attention can relate to the stories in this book - some are truly horrendous, but knowledge IS power, and I definitely felt more empowered after reading this book! The bad news is that there frequently are no easy answers - the GOOD news is that you are not alone and the answers, though not easy, DO EXIST! Although I prefer Gavin deBecker's book THE GIFT OF FEAR, this book is a welcome addition to increasing one's information resources and sense of protection.

Format: Paperback
This book has a lot of useful information, and is good to have even when you're not being stalked. It helps you see how the stalker thinks, and how to protect yourself, your family, co-workers and friends. There is another book that would work well with this, that keeps things a little more updated - Stalking the Stalker. In general, most women don't realize that not being clear and concise with their wishes because of discomfort levels can lead to even more problems later on. This book should also be read with The Gift of Fear by Gavin deBecker. I highly recommend it in the process of keeping yourself and your loved ones safe!

I think that one should make their decisions according to their situation, but being aware of possible repercussions from things like restraining orders, etc. is an important part of a decision.

Format: Paperback
This book is very well researched, but it largely consists of horrific true stories of stalkings. I don't know how helpful this will be if you are being stalked.
A lot of the stories chosen are told in a sensational way and doesn't give much hope to victims.
This book was published in 1994 so it's somewhat outdated.
It is an interesting source book for anyone who wants to write about stalkers but I imagine a victim could find a better book about how to protect themselves.
The subtitle "Everything you need to know to kepp yourself safe "is surely nonsense. Mostly the book tells you repeatedly not to get a restraining order because you'll anger your stalker. Perhaps this is true.
If you are a stalker yourself suffering with obsession I strongly suggest you take an antidepressant such as Celexa to relive your suffering and cure you of obsessionality. It really works.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a crime that has taken on new life and is more and more prevalent throughout society in general. Anyone, from little kids, to older adults, can fall prey to these sick individuals and may not even know it for a while. We have the celebrity stalkings, John Lennon, who was assassinated by his stalker, Chapman, Ronald Reagan, a victim of the obsession Hinckley had for Jodi Foster, Rebecca Schafer, the victim of Robert Bardo, Teresa Saldana, victim of a Scottish maniac who has vowed to finish the job when he gets out of prison, then we have the regular folk, who would have remained unknown had their paths not been intercepted by stalkers. Forward by Gavin de Becker, who write the excellent and potentially life saving book, the Gift of Fear. HIGHLY recommended, fascinating read.

This is an invaluable book. Every female of every age should read this book.
I was a victim of post relationship stalking after a mentally, emotionally and psychologically abusive relationship ended. The stalking continued for over a year with little real help from the local police force and did not stop until i employed the techniques in this book. Please arm yourself with information and read this book.
Ive read about ten different publications but the most informative were this book "Surviving a Stalker" and Stop Signs by Lynn Fairweather. Please read and share information about this important book. It could be you, your sister, your daughter or your neighbor. be prepared, informed and capable of defending yourself.
