–Chief Alan Lanning, La Mesa Police Department
“David Givens has once more written a remarkable book which will be of immediate utility to those interested in the latest research on nonverbal communications. Where Gavin de Becker’s The Gift of Fear introduced us to the brain’s ability to warn us of danger, David Givens’s CRIME SIGNALS completes our circle of knowledge, teaching us how to assess and decipher the warning signs of danger and criminal activity. In one exquisite, easy to read volume, David Givens has dissected the behaviors of murderers, child abusers, even terrorists, as no one else has before. By exposing the pre offense, offense, and post offense behaviors of criminals, David Givens has put together an exceptional text for reading criminal behavior. Incorporating the latest research in nonverbal behavior, psychology, neurology, physiology, and the social sciences, David Givens simplifies the complex and marries it up with actual cases from today’s headlines. This book is not just for law enforcement officers, it is for anyone who is concerned about their own safety and the safety of their loved ones. This is a must read.”
–Joe Navarro, FBI Special Agent (ret.), author of What Every Body is Saying.
“This savvy, street-smart field guide to the many ways the hands, eyes, jaws, shoulders, and sweat glands of criminals betray what they’re about to do and what they have done is a must-read. Find out why you should worry, for example, if you see men entering an airport in single file, or if you see people standing like statues within a convenience store.”
–Connie Fletcher, author of Crime Scene: Inside the World of the Real CSIs
“Sorting the truth from lies and trying to understanding the criminal mind is a frustrating and elusive goal, but in CRIME SIGNALS David Givens takes us one step closer with a useful and fascinating overview of the movement, voice, and body language of those who do us harm.”
–Gary M. Lavergne, author of Sniper in the Tower: The Charles Whitman Murders

In the criminal world, nonverbal signs, signals and cues speak louder than words, and many of the survival tips in this book should help many of us feel more secure and safe in our daily lives.” —Tuscon Citizen
