Gift of Fear (Abridged Audiobook)

The Gift of Fear: And Other Survival Signals That Protect Us from Violence - Gavin de Becker

I didn't realize that I was downloading an abridged version of this book.  Because of this, I don't really want to assign a star rating--I don't really feel that I've experienced the book (only part of it).  In any event, Gavin DeBecker offers helpful strategies for cultivating the intuition that allows us to accurately assess potential dangers instead of dismissing a "gut feeling" on the premise that it's not "logical."  I've ordered the print version of this book from my library and intend to write a fuller review once I've had a chance to read the whole thing.
