Overview

Fear can't help you in a dangerous situation. A former FBI profiler shows you what can.

As one of the world's top experts on psychopathy and criminal behavior, Mary Ellen O'Toole has seen repeatedly how relying on the sense of fear alone often fails to protect us from danger. Whether you are opening the door to a stranger or meeting a date you connected with online, you need to know how to protect yourself from harm-physical, financial, legal, and professional.

Using the SMART method, which O'Toole developed and used at the FBI, we can confidently know how to:

  • Respond to a threat in any situation
  • Hire someone who will work inside your home like a contractor or housekeeper
  • Figure out whether a prospective employee is a safe bet
  • Know whom you can trust with your children

    An especially useful book for women living alone, parents who are concerned about their children's safety, and employers worried about employees who might go postal, Dangerous Instincts gives us the tools used by professionals to navigate potentially hazardous waters. Like The Gift of Fear and The Sociopath Next Door, it will appeal to anyone looking to make the right call in an ever threatening world.

Editorial Reviews

As a FBI profiler, Mary Ellen O'Toole dealt daily with dangers that most of our parents and grandparents never imagined. Protecting ourselves and our loved ones from crime has, however, become a matter of concern for all of us; and this veteran expert on wrongdoers has designed a book to protect us from harm at home, at work, and online. Dangerous Instincts reminds us that there is no dearth of threats out there; from child predators to net scammers to employees who are ticking time-bombs; but O'Toole doesn't just sound alarms; she offers preventive solutions. A valuable book whether you're protecting your child, yourself, your reputation, or your bank book.
