Imagine a pack of wolves circling a... fox. The moment the pack strikes (topic reaches the answer) lord redfur has beamed to (choose) astral plane, ufo, vixen's burrow. The book reads as if someone copied loose files from Animal and Pfouts, it holds no truth which is not known from "crime prevention" tv or local police. Sadly, I hoped I would be wrong with Animal, but his works declined after Violence, Blunder & Cheap Shots. The one crime I found is that trees are killed to give useless dabbling a bookform.

As a professional security specialist, I can say without hesitation that this book is one of the best written on the subject of street crime. MacYoung and Pfouts know their subject intimately well, and their research into criminal psychology is more thorough than a semester of Criminal Justice in college! I tested the veracity of this book while working as a private investigator; my bosses were retired police detectives, and they were firmly impressed with the knowledge these "civilians" possessed. If you want to safeguard yourself on the mean (and not-so-mean) streets, I highly recommend buying this book and putting its recommendations to use. By the way, I live an hour outside of New York City, and I have seen and identify with much of co-author Pfouts' experiences in the Big Apple. This book is not to be missed.
