This book was a gift from my brother. I read the intro and couldn't put it down! Quigley writes well, gives excellent examples and reasonable measures any of us can take to improve our awareness and our sense of security. This book, along with Gavin de Becker's books (Gift of Fear and Protecting the Gift) are great gift ideas for women and parents. Very empowering.

MEN (as well as women): READ THIS BOOK! -- DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO BECOME AN EASY TARGET! This book should be required reading for intelligent adults.

Easy-to-follow instructions for personal safety. On page 69, the best advice I've ever seen for avoiding carjackers.
Chapter 6, "Security While Traveling," is worth the price of the book.

I have to say, I was very impressed with this book. I work a job that would be considered unsafe for just about anybody. I am a Home visit nurse. I travel at night to unknown areas, sometimes in the worst part of town. I have been doing this for years, and I guess in my own way got "comfortable" with it. There were a lot of things I hadn't thought about in protecting myself and this book really was an eyeopener. Women can be attacked at anytime and anywhere, it can be during the day, nice well lit areas, or at night. I wasn't really sure what to do in a dangerous situation. Although it is ultimately up to us, this gives you great ideas for safety, protection and awareness of your environment. I sure am glad to have this book!

I love that it strives to motivate women to become more self-protective, but many of the stories are too old and the advice is too narrow in its advise... aka it refers to things that would have been relevant to people in the hollywood 15+ years ago.
