Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Indianapolis police captain Snow Family Abuse, LJ 6/1/97 has written a comprehensive, practical guide to resisting stalking. The book discusses the ten types of stalking, from intimate-partner stalking to serial stalking, relaying many celebrity-stalking and other anecdotes culled from the media and the author's own experiences. The best part of the book details how to protect personal information from prying eyes and how to respond to unwanted contact before it becomes violent. He also suggests checking out prospective dates, keeping a cellular phone on hand, and being wary of others' obsessive behavior. Finally, he chastises police and the judiciary for not taking stalking more seriously and stresses self-protection over reliance on court-issued protective orders. Highly recommended for general collections.Harry Charles, Attorney-at-Law, St. Louis

    Brillliant Advice for Anyone Being Stalked

    Having been (and continuing to be stalked,) I found the information on this book to be the best out there. Snow's professional background, as well as his insight explains how a person can be directly and directly stalked, and have no knowledge of it. Ffor instance, strange things happen to my neighbors and friends. This man was diagnosed at a State Hospital and is a violent felon. this is the source for material to protect yourself and your family. geriangel@excite.com
