Description du produit

Revue de presse

“Mary Ellen O’Toole is my hero! In Dangerous Instincts she offers sound advice and fascinating examples gleaned from her long career in the Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI. This book will save many lives—including, quite possibly, your own. Whether the knowledge you find herein saves you from a con man, a rapist, a thief, a killer, or just a miserable marriage, this is a classic, valuable book. I recommend it highly to all my family, friends, and readers.”—Ann Rule, author of THE STRANGER BESIDE ME

“A masterful and compelling primer on survival in a world in which people are not always what we think them to be. Dr. O’Toole’s deep understanding of the nature and implications of psychopathy. . . is particularly impressive, and shared by only a few other criminal investigators. This is an important and well-written book on topics of concern to everyone. A great read, highly recommended.”—Robert Hare, Ph.D., author of WITHOUT CONSCIENCE

“In this absorbing read, [O’Toole] discusses why people trusted Bernie Madoff and Ted Bundy and dissects online dating responses and typical blind spots. The author helps readers analyze their decision-making patterns and provides a guide for helping them to assess and mitigate risk. O’Toole’s book will provide insight to everyone, but it’s particularly helpful for women living alone, parents concerned about their children’s safety, or employers worried about perplexing employee behavior.”—Library Journal

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Dangerous Instincts 29 février 2016
Par Kris48 - Publié sur Amazon.com

The first half of the book isn't really that helpful. It tells you about a lot of situations, then refers you to chapter 6 or 8 or whatever. I finally started skimming because it would talk about something very interesting, then move on to something else without finishing that story or telling you how to recognize the danger signs.

I'm now in the middle and it's very useful. This is the meat of what you need to know. This is where you need to pay attention and it could save your life. But it was very frustrating to read all those previous chapters and stories would just end and all you would be told was how normal the killer was, how charming, how they hide in plain sight. You wouldn't be told how the hunt ended, how they figured it out. Once in awhile she would tell you how they figured it out, but it was rather bare bones. Very little was there that could help YOU.

The book is worth it, but jump to the second half. The first half is why I only gave it 3 stars. It dropped tantalizing tidbits that dangled just out of reach of understanding. Too frustrating. Don't give up though. The good stuff is later.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Useful and Easy Read to Up Your Personal Safety 21 décembre 2016
Par S. Carner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I purchased this book while on the hunt for an instructional manual on reading behavioral cues. The majority of books in this genre handle serial killers, and it's pretty unlikely I'll run into many of them in my life. I will, however, meet my fair share of narcissists, sociopaths, socially maladjusted individuals and those with personality disorders.
While this book is *not* a manual of behavioral cues, it is a very useful and thorough examination of risk assessment and avoidance. Dr. O'Toole examines a number of situations I had not thought to risk assess: car pooling, selecting a financial advisor, and monitoring my own behavior, among them. She also addresses the situations one would expect to risk assess: entering relationships, choosing a childcare provider, selecting individuals to work in one's home, etc. She provides case studies of real-life situations and then explains how she would approach them, red flags she would have identified, and how to move forward in a less-than-perfect world. Each chapter begins with an explanation of objectives and ends with a summary sheet to review important details, so it's easy to remember the lessons within.
The reason I chose 4 stars instead of 5 is because I purchased the Kindle edition. This is not a book whose text was optimized for Kindle use. Dr. O'Toole references page numbers which aren't really applicable, and sidebars sometimes are dropped into the body of text in a disjointed way. This is not a reflection of the work itself, but rather on its presentation in Kindle format.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not as helpful as I expected 3 février 2014

Heard O'Toole interviewed on a couple of radio shows when this came out. Purchased it on that basis but am disappointed in it overall.

The text is fairly repetitive and does not offer much in the way of substantive suggestions on how to avoid dangerous situations. What is offered could easily be covered in half the number of pages the author(s) used.

Also surprised at how many of the suggestions are basically common sense. The book may be more helpful for young people and/or those who are naturally very trusting (which does not describe me!) and wouldn't consider or plan for unpleasant possibilities.

Starts off great. I could hardly put it down but then she spends the last 2/3s of the book giving the bad advice you would expect from a career FBI officer that has spent a life in the company of rapists, kidnappers, pedophiles and serial killers: "Don't trust anybody. Even normal seeming people might torture and kill you. Never let anyone into your house without references and a background check. Even your friendly neighbor that you have known for years might be just waiting for the right moment to get you." If you actually followed all the advice in this book you lead a sad, lonely and bitter life--and if you ever did meet a criminal you are probably less safe because you have completely isolated yourself from anyone in the world that could help you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Read 19 juillet 2012
Par Carol - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I have now read Dangerous Instincts 3 times and sections of it more than that, as I want SMART behaviors to become "second nature" to me. I purchased the book through Amazon on the recommendation of a young woman whose opinion I respect. As I read I was chilled at situations that I had put myself in that could have potentially been very dangerous. Some of them actually were and had I not owned 2-3 Rotties ,who were always by my side when at home, I shiver to think of the outcomes. I say this because I am much more cautious in the "outside world"
Mary Ellen O'Toole designed her book to help us to make better decisions in our daily lives-she keeps the language simple enough for any reader to understand. Never before had I thought of how necessary it is for one to know what the right questions were to ask of people who enter our lives whether it be the man that we may think of marrying to, the contractor working on our house. I have usually relied on my "gut" and felt that I was a pretty good judge of people only to find out later that this was an incorrect assessment. She shows us how to become more aware of our vulnerabilities in order to make ourselves less vulnerable. How to deal with social networking, how to decide the risk factors in our relationships with others, how to make the decisions to keep our children safe.
I would and have recommended this book to every woman, every parent, and yes men-it could be beneficial to you also. I keep it on my night table. Thank you Mary Ellen O'Toole for opening my eyes to my own dangerous instincts.
