Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

a girl's gotta do ...

Sassy single gal, high-powered exec in high heels, carefree college co-ed, harried soccer mom-- no matter who you are, you deserve to feel secure doing your own thing anytime, anywhere. With a little help from the Safety Chick, it's a cinch. Sharing lessons she's learned-- the hard way-- along with proven tips from a battery of experts in street smarts, Kathleen Baty gets specific about what to pack for a business trip, where it's safe to shop online, when to report a creepy co-worker, and how to tell that guy who's bothering you at the bar to get lost-- for good. Complete with step-by-step instructions on how to stop an assailant dead in his tracks with your words, your hands, or, if necessary, a few easy-to-use self-defense weapons, this book is a master class in personal safety for women of all ages.

"Many women believe that violence is a mystery that can be understood only by men, but Kathleen Baty knows better. Throughout this book she shows that intuition is deep, brilliant, and powerful."--Gavin de Becker, from the Foreword

"At last, a practical guide to personal safety for women living in today's world!"--Gregory S. Boles, President, Association of Threat Assessment Professionals, and Director, Global Threat Management, Kroll Inc.

"Kathleen Baty's book is a must-read for every woman who wants commonsense advice about how not to become a crime victim. I highly recommend it."--Jill Schall, President, Women Prosecutors of California
