Editorial Reviews

Review

"Juval Aviv has generated an invaluable book for our times." -- National Review Online, April 23, 2003

"Juval Aviv, who worked in Israeli intelligence, has collected his advice in a thick, detailed and thorough new book." -- Detroit Free Press, April 13, 2003

"This superbly researched and readable book describes what individuals and businesses must do to survive in this age of terrorism." -- Business Insurance, March 31, 2003

Aviv has spent his career dealing with terrorism. The reader would be well advised to heed his warnings and advice. -- Victor Marchetti, Former Executive Assistant to the Deputy Director and 14 year veteran of the CIA and best-selling author of The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence a landmark work being the first critical treatment of the CIA to be published by a top officer of the agency.

This is thoroughly researched, and great primer for anyone who needs to know about terrorist threats and response. -- Jim Christensen, Chief, U.S. National Central Bureau of Interpol (Retired) and Supervisory Special Agent, U.S. Secret Service (Retired).

About the Author

Juval Aviv is the President and CEO of Interfor Inc., an international investigative and intelligence firm. For over thirty years Mr. Aviv has worked with corporations and other entities, both domestically and internationally, on security measures for the protection of assets and personnel. Mr. Aviv also serves as a special consultant to the U.S. Congress on issues of terrorism and security.

Before coming to the United States, Mr. Aviv served as an officer in the Israeli Defense Force (Major, retired) leading an elite Commando/Intelligence Unit. He was selected by the Israeli Secret Service (Mossad) to participate in a number of intelligence and special operations in many countries in the late 1960s and 1970s. In 1984, a true account of one mission was published, entitled Vengeance, which was available in 27 countries. The book became a best seller and was later made into an award-winning film, Sword of Gideon, which was broadcast in North America on HBO and in other countries.

Format: Hardcover
As a counterintelligence director with more than 25 years experience with a major international news organization, I have read scores of books and government documents pertaining to the terrorist threat and how to combat it. I have reviewed, with great dissatisfaction, the material provided by the Homeland Security Department, a multi-billion dollar federal bureaucracy with tens of thousands of employees. It is in this context that I read Mr. Aviv's masterful book. The Complete Terrorism Survival Guide is perhaps the best layman's guide to personal, family and business security in this age of great uncertainty and terror threat. Mr. Aviv neither overstates nor minimizes the threat, provides the average citizen with a set of practical tools for minimizing the risk, and provides a compendium of invaluable information, that would take a professional many months to compile and organize in one location. This book is a true public service, and one that deserves the widest possible circulation. For the average businessman who travels abroad, this is a must-pack item. For the housewife, worrying about security at the ultimate homefront--the home, the neighborhood, the school, the shopping mall--this is of equal value. Even though Mr. Aviv has written a book that is thoroughly readable, and comprehensible to the average citizen, he has also provided the insights that can only come from decades of on-the-job experience in the tough world of government and private security. As someone who frequently writes and lectures on international terrorism and related subjects, I can say that I truly found The Complete Terrorism Survival Guide to be a worthwhile read. I learned a great deal!

Format: Hardcover
I thought I was pretty savvy about safety. After reading Aviv's book, I realized I was actually pretty naive. While this hefty guide has plenty of tips for folks whose jobs place them at risk, it is also a treasure-trove of advice for the average person -- and, sadly, Sept. 11 taught us that you don't have to be a head of state to be vulnerable. Who knew the dangers of divulging your mother's maiden name on a web site? Or sewing a US flag to your backpack? Or buying prescription drugs online? Not to mention the hazards of looking an abductor in the eye. Don't do it!
Aviv's book is clear, comprehensive, and full of easy-to-digest (and vital) tips -- whether you want to know about protecting your pets, or surviving a nuclear attack. It's a valuable addition to the library of anybody who wants to as safe as possible in an increasingly hostile world.

I travel a lot for work and this book really helped me focus on safety issues that I do have control of. It's easy to read and very informative. I am definitely going to make some changes based upon reading this book and the advice it gives.

Format: Hardcover
I live in New York city so have been worried about protecting myself from any further terrorist attacks but wasn't sure what to do. This book gives you great tips that you can use now. Obviously, there are some scenarios where it doesn't matter how prepared you are (and the book is upfront about this) but there are things you can do that will help you in many other scenarios. Also, it's an easy read and great reference manual - if you've got to travel to Spain or Gabon, this book will have some websites and numbers you need.
