The Gift of Fear - Gavin De Becker

Gavin de Becker's A Gift of Fear means to scare you for your own good. In de Becker's opinion, fear is a gift for sensing danger; it is an important survival instinct that should be respected and, more importantly, acted upon. To illustrate his point, de Becker opens with the story of Kelly: One evening she returned to her apartment building to find the door inexplicably unlocked. Slowly clues amassed and she realized that someone had broken into her unit. No single clue told her of the danger lurking within but she heeded her fear and narrowly escaped with her life. By treating her fear rationally, Kelly managed to walk away from a near fatal encounter with a serial rapist and murderer. Through numerous such vignettes, de Becker persuades us to trust the counsel of fear.
