    This is a must read book for EVERY woman, whether she carries concealed or not. She teaches you how to be aware of your surroundings, to avoid dangerous situations and how to defend yourself if necessary. It's not a "dry read" manual, but written with candor and is hard to put down once started. Lots of photographs to illustrate her points and stories of real life situations make it an enjoyable read.
