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
