Its an unfortunate reality that women are susceptible to random acts of aggression, from sexual harassment and stalking to physical assaults, domestic violence, date rape and worse.  But women can learn how to protect and defend themselves—with this groundbreaking guidebook.  Let martial arts black belt and accomplished journalist Lori Hartman Gervasi walk you through easy-to-follow, everyday steps for taking charge of your personal safety, training your reflexes, and—if and when the time comes—using force.  Her program consists of 26 potentially life-saving decisions that every woman must make, including:

 

DECIDE TO BELIEVE IN YOUR FIGHT - Battles are waged from the inside out.  Your conscience, intelligence, and guts must be committed to the cause.  You and those you love are the things worth fighting for. 

DECIDE TO DEVISE A STRATEGY - Create a one-way ticket out of every imaginable circumstance, from back-door escape routes to getaways in public places.  Think “what-if…?”, plan for the unexpected, and be ready for anything! 

DECIDE TO RECOGNIZE THE THREAT OF THE INITIAL ATTACK - When practicing awareness, you can detect danger before it happens.  The bad guy will take steps to get close to you.  Watch carefully and identify these for what they are—the preludes to an attack. 

DECIDE TO MOVE - If an attacker strikes, dont freeze—get moving!  Break through your fear with instant mobility.  You have limitless options and any movement works as long as it leads to your safety. 

DECIDE TO ACT ON YOUR INSTINCTS - Your intuition is your guide, but you must respond physically in order to be successful.  When something isnt right, take action, change plans, redirect yourself, and control your destiny! 

 

…along with Defense Dos And Donts, inspiring “Power Points,” and other survival tactics that can help you to be prepared, stay strong, and

Gervasi really has a way with words. She gives good advice on how to deal with the "bad guy." In her next book I would love to see her address the victimization of single moms who are left by men to fend for themselves in this society. A good book needs to be written on this topic. Way to go, Gervasi!
