Being the victim of a stalker is one of the worst things that can happen to you. A stalker not only takes away your freedom and sense of security but is a serious threat to your life and the lives of your loved ones. Usually, books about stalking offer advice that is difficult to follow for one reason or another. Shaun Edward Sundahl’s Stalker Poison: A Safety Guide for Women Experiencing Domestic Violence and Stalking is different from other books because it aims at empowering victims. It offers them affordable resources and clear explanations of the laws and examines news and different methods of stalking.

Statistics and events described in the book are disturbing, but awareness will direct the efforts of the victims towards solutions that could save lives. In this case, knowledge is really power. The continual encouragement to victims to act is one of the major benefits of Stalker Poison. It is impossible to discuss every single case, but Sundahl offers valuable tips to keep victims safe. He warns about what you should do at home and work, suggests escape plans, and even explains legal issues and cyberstalking. Suggestions and strategies are well-considered, and the examples that support them are enlightening. In short, Stalker Poison guides the victims of stalking step by step in their fight. Its pragmatic advice will certainly help them during a difficult time.
