About the Author
Pete Canavan has been studying the martial arts for over 20 years, and in that time has trained thousands of men, women and children of all ages in self-defense. He has worked as a university public safety officer and is familiar with many of the safety challenges facing college students as a result of first-hand experience. Pete is also a computer consultant who has run his own information technology business since 1995. His expertise keeps his clients' systems, networks, email and web sites secure from outside threats. Pete's experience with online threats, coupled with his ability to protect against physical, off-line threats, make for a uniquely comprehensive perspective to staying safe no matter where a threat comes from. As the father of three teenage sons, he also brings the perspective of a parent to his writing and teaching. Pete lives with his wife and sons in Pennsylvania.

I took one look at the table of contents and realized that it was the perfect gift that could be used and referenced easily on dozens of different safety concerns. The checklists at the end of each chapter will make it easy for him (and anyone) to quickly review the most important information covered.
Keeping today's students safe is so important, and with identity theft and cybersecurity problems like the recent Equifax data breach, it is essential to have a guide that walks the reader through how to secure themselves, their property and their identity.
The physical book has large text that is easy to read and an excellent resource that should be required reading for every college student!
“The Ultimate Guide to College Safety” is an extensive compilation of safety information that is aimed at keeping college students safe. Safety skills, both online and offline, are detailed and tips and best practices are included.
The author is a public safety professional who has experience in both online safety (he is an IT consultant) and offline safety (he has expertise as a self-defense instructor). In his book, he leaves no stone unturned.
I was impressed with how thorough of the topics were covered. The section on party drugs was extensive and gave me an education about something that I had no idea existed to the degree that it does.
This book is an absolute must-have for every college student -- male or female, freshman or senior.
