This book is that of prevention, realistic living for this day and age, brings out awareness and brings about a safe journey!!! I have traveled the world and wished that I had this knowledge that this book brings forth.
I bought this book after reading rave reviews by Brandon Webb author of the Red Circle. Turns out it was immediately applicable to me as I prepared to visit China for the first time. I enjoyed the insightful approach to Situational/Personal awareness and thought that the "real world" travel tips were first rate. I've only just begun to re-read sections of the book again and am enjoying it even more than my first pass.
This book presents critical information for the traveling public. It serves as the best guide I found to protect my staff when traveling overseas. There is nothing negative about this book.
This book gives the reader the tools to protect yourself in less than friendly environments both abroad and at home. I gave it to my daughter to read before she takes her trip to Europe this summer so as to give her an additional chance for survival.
From what I understand this was written for contract and operating personal in other countries. Basically it tells one what to look for to stay operational and alive. 2/3 of the book give one information on what to be aware of. The last 150 pages gives one information on numerous countries one may travel in. This information covers cultural,political, and business aspects of that country. Each country has about 7-8 pages devoted to it....excellent book for knowledge in travel...
Great read. Although you may have to read it a few times for total absorption you will come away with a higher awareness and understanding of the dangers around you. I highly recommend this book for not only travelers but anyone. Our new world is a dangerous place.
Escape the Wolf is an excellent, comprehensive resource for global travelers and those in companies who are responsible for employees traveling abroad. Risks, or wolves as the book calls them, are everywhere, and you need to be prepared. Just look at how quickly the situation evolved in Japan recently. The author takes a proactive approach to personal travel security and puts it all together - from what to research before your trip to strategies to keep yourself safe during your trip.
I heard about Escape the Wolf from a friend of my husband, who is in the FBI. My husbands friend highly recommended the book for anyone that travels. My son is a contractor in Iraq and he admittedly said it has opened his eyes and mind up to all the potential threats. He passed it around to all his friends and they all thought it was a great read - its a real world guide to becoming more "sheepdog vice sheep" like - and being a mom - thats exactly what I want for my son and his friends.
The back of the book has a country guide for the various places you may be visiting outside the USA. There are things about each country like how to dress for business occasions and how to dress just to blend in. I recommend it even if you are not traveling out of the country. For example, there was a very interesting tidbit about how to secure your laptop computer in case it is stolen or someone tries to hack it to steal business information. I found it interesting and recommend it highly.
I am a frequent business traveler. I spend about 2-3 weeks a month on the road (think George Clooney in Up in the Air). This book has opened my eyes to a whole other side of traveling safely. The THREAT concept is super simple to remember and covers the whole spectrum of traveling. If you travel, you are missing a piece of travel gear if you don't own this book.
If you're consistently traveling abroad, this book is a valuable tool. The system the author describes is founded on sound personal security principals. I'm a savvy traveler but I'd never utilized, or even heard of the "THREAT" acronym prior to this book. The author has thoroughly researched and compiled an extensive guide, in which he lists resources for areas that the inquisitive reader may further research.
I have always considered myself a fairly "aware" individual. Growing up in New York City, I was taught at an early age to be attentive to my surroundings, on alert to potential threats, and avoid dangerous situations. However, this book has opened my eyes that real awareness is an acquired skill that requires instruction, training, and practice.
