The horror stories revealed during last year's testimony from hundreds of citizens targeted by vigilante Internal Revenue Service agents reveal a frightening reality of modern America -- everyone is vulnerable to zealous organizations and individuals. For many people, fear of harassment comes not from government agencies but from harder-to-trace entities such as religious cults, criminals, private detectives, and sociopathic stalkers. As a complement to Gavin de Becher's recent bestseller "The Gift of Fear," security specialist H. Michael Sweeney provides both psychological and technical advice on dealing with a variety of harassers, casting his net more widely than other competing titles by including the "good guys" -- cops, federal agencies, and corporate bullies -- as well as the bad guys usually associated with systematic harassment.
Great little book unless you are "unstable," then it could push you over the edge. Stalkers, Corporate Bullies, Gangs, Professional Criminals, the IRS and a Host of Government 'Intelligence' Agencies... are groups mentioned.
Interestingly the "how to fight back" are far from the "Get Even" and "Screw You" series by another author.
Best chapter (and point of the book) is "Awareness is the First Line of Defense" unless of course you are already freaked out, then skip this chapter AND the book.
There's also a useful Internet Resource listing in the book.
