WHEN THIS DOCTOR TALKS, YOU SHOULD LISTEN.<br /><br />Thousands of people make an early exit each year and arrive on medical examiner Jan Garavaglia’s table. What is particularly sad about this is that many of these deaths could easily have been prevented. Although Dr. Garavaglia, or Dr. G, as she’s known to many, could not tell these individuals how to avoid their fates, we can benefit from her experience and profound insight into the choices we make each day.<br /><br />In <i>How Not to Die</i>, Dr. G acts as a medical detective to identify the often-unintentional ways we harm our bodies, then shows us how to use that information to live better and smarter. She provides startling tips on how to make wise choices so that we don’t have to see her, or someone like her, for a good, long time. <br /><br />• In “Highway to the Morgue,” we learn the one commonsense safety tip that can prevent deadly accidents—and the reason you should never drive with the windows half open<br />• “Code Blue” teaches us how to increase our chances of leaving the hospital alive—and how to insist that everyone caring for you practice the easiest hygiene method around<br />• “Everyday Dangers” informs us why neat freaks live longer—and the best ways to stay safe in a car during a lightning storm<br /><br />Using anecdotes from her cases and a liberal dose of humor, Dr. G gives us her prescription for living a healthier, better, longer life—and unlike many doctors’ orders, this one is surprisingly easy to follow.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

But how could we have known that the charismatic leader had the characteristics of a tyrant?

He shows us how to identify the four most common "dangerous personalities" and how to analyze the potential threat level: the Narcissist, the Predator, the Paranoid, and the Unstable Personality.

<b><i>In a civilized society, violence is rarely the answer. But when it is-it's the <u>only</u> answer. </i></b><br /><br />The sound of breaking glass downstairs in the middle of the night. <br /><br />The words, "Move and you die." <br /><br />The hands on your child, or the knife to your throat. <br /><br />In this essential book, self-protection expert and former military intelligence officer Tim Larkin changes the way we think about violence in order to save our lives. By deconstructing our assumptions about violence-its morality, its function in modern society, how it <i>actually </i>works-Larkin unlocks the shackles of our own taboos and arms us with what we need to know to prevent, prepare for, and survive the unthinkable event of life-or-death violence. Through a series of harrowing true-life stories, Larkin demonstrates that violence is a tool equally effective in the hands of the "bad guy" or the "good guy"; that the person who acts first, fastest and with the full force of their body is the one who survives; and that each and every one of us is capable of being that person when our lives are at stake. <br /><br />An indispensable resource, <i>When Violence is the Answer</i> will remain with you long after you've finished reading, as the bedrock of your self-protection skills and knowledge. <br /><br />
