Predators: Pedophiles, Rapists, and Other Sex Offenders Who They Are, How They Operate, and How We Can Protect Ourselves and Our by Anna Salter
Predators: Pedophiles, Rapists, and Other Sex Offenders Who They Are, How They Operate, and How We Can Protect Ourselves and Our

onetree, January 25, 2008

Anna Salter does an exceptional job in dispelling the myths of who and what a sexual predator is. Whether a professional or layperson, one can recognize with dismay that the predator she speaks of may well be that very "nice" person next door, at work or in the park with your children. Predators have certain commonalities, the least of which is the ability to deceive those whom they target. We forget that "niceness" is a learned social skill and not a character trait, indicative of the inner person. It is a skill predators use outwardly to hide who they really are. Anna is brutually honest in sharing what we know and what we don't about the causes and cures for these predators and addresses many of the myths and misinformation commonly accepted as truth. This is not a book for the sqeamish. It is an important book for anyone in the field of treatment or seeking to understand more about these predators.
