    As a forensic psychologist who conducts threat assessments and fitness-for-duty evaluations of potentially violent employees, I found Dr. Braverman’s book to be the most informative, readable, and practical text available. I recommend it highly to HR professionals, Occupational Health physicians and nurses, employment lawyers (don’t be offended by some of Dr. Braverman’s constructive criticism of too-conservative corporate counsel!), Employee Assistance professionals, union officials, security officers, anyone who worries about a co-worker’s potential for violence, and anyone who has been accused of threatening violence on the job. If more employers took Dr. Braverman’s advice, workplace homicides and other forms of violence (e.g., assualts, harassment, hostile work environment, threats, intimidation) would decrease, employee stress would diminish, and worker productivity would improve.

    A very helpful guide, May 16, 2000

    This is the best book on this topic I have seen. As the owner of a mid-sized company, I run into violence, threat and harassment situations almost weekly. The book is intelligent, has useful case studies, and concise guidelines on how to develop and implement policy. The author knows his stuff and has a humane, reasonable approach to these tricky issues.

    Good fundamentals, but getting dated., March 25, 2009

    While well-written for the day, the content is becoming dated. This is most evident with the statistical evidence and case studies provided. The other criticism would be the lack of any substantive information on the violence assessment process itself.

    Still, a very good introduction into issues surrounding workplace violence. Breverman has much to offer and his pithy and no-nonsense approach does make me want to check out some of his more recently written books.
