Chuck Sampuchino has written a comprehensive manual for how to protect yourself from a gnome attack, and it is knowledge to live by. Here are a few of my favorites tips that you can find in the book, How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack:

- See the warning signs: Look for garage tools out of place or stones being moved making a signal to other gnomes.
- Preventative measures: Learn how to add motion lighting, build a moat, or the proper way to reach into your mailbox as to not be attacked from the inside.
- Crisis strategies: Practice exiting your house from a first floor window or attacking from a sleeping position.
