"Women in the Security Profession, 1st Edition - A Practical Guide for Career Development is a much-needed book filled with a tremendous amount of practical information, that is not just applicable for women, but for anyone (male or female) who is already working in the security industry and wants to advance their career or for anyone who is considering a career in the security industry." --International Foundation for Protection Officers
"This book is an excellent reference for women considering a career in security, but it’s also a useful text for anyone who is curious to understand how women fit into the male-dominated security profession." --Security Management
"A book largely written by women is not intended solely for them. The other sex can learn a lot about career development from the contributors. A Q&A feature permits many contributors to write candidly about their experiences...This book makes the pathway clear for vocational advancement." --Security Letter
