Overview

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

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This frank, informative book concerns all aspects of personal safety for women. Baty, known as the "Safety Chick," appears on TV, writes articles, and gives presentations on personal safety based on her own experience of being stalked. The information, though brief, proves illuminating, e.g., five pages on self-defense aerosols like pepper sprays (how they work, foams vs. sprays, etc.) feature in the chapter on self-defense products. Other chapters are similarly broken into sections that contain tips for different realms, such as the home (draw the curtains) and work (have security escort you to your car). The advice is thoughtful and comprehensive, and while much is common sense, this book gathers it all in one place, much like Kenneth Shore's Keeping Kids Safe: A Guide for Parents of Toddlers and Teens-and All the Years in Between. Baty's friendly, open style succeeds in making learning about personal safety a positive experience. Recommended. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    It's Okay

    The information that is given is basically stuff I already knew. I guess you still have to read it to make sure, because there are still people who don't know some of these things. I think it would be a great book for girls age 13-25 to read. Good gift for girls starting High School & College.
