I had the opportunity to watch Katy in action as she taught a WAMM class in Ann Arbor - her enthusiasm and dedication to teaching women model mugging techniques is amazing! She does an excellent job via this book in providing the necessary information women need to defend themselves from a would-be attacker. I urge every woman to read this book - you'll be glad you did!
