about

Continuing on the path of The Gift of Fear (Gavin deBecker) Spotting Danger Before It Spots You is geared towards the average citizen who at any moment could find themselves faced with a violent encounter but may lack the training needed to detect the situation early or react to it appropriately.

  • Written in a manner that can be easily understood by the average citizen who may lack any formal training in the areas of situational awareness and personal safety.
  • Not everyone carries a gun or studies martial arts, that’s why this book focuses on the skillsets necessary to detect and avoid violent encounters.
  • Breaks the information into three easy to follow phases. Phase one increases the readers understanding of predatory mindset and violence. Phase two walks the reader through the development of proper situational awareness. Phase three provides the reader with the methods for implementing what they’ve learned, and instructions for how to increase their level of personal security.
  • Criminals pick their victims (soft targets) in under a minute and base it largely on the victim’s body language. Learn to change body language and be seen as a hard target.
  • The author is someone who has traveled the world as a government agent (a federal air marshal) and made a career of situational awareness.
  • Foreword written by best-selling author and violence expert Lt. Col. Dave Grossman.
