I have read many books on self-defense, being a victim of an unprovoked attack some years ago, and have found very few so refreshingly forthright and honest as these. My daughter's opinions on how they conduct themselves in possibly dangerous scenarios, have drastically changed thanks to this particular book. I HIGHLY recommend reading all of Jahn's books if you would like a non sugar coated viewpoint ,in other words, reality check,ladies!
The headline says it all. This is the best book on women's self defense ever written. The defense methods described are down and dirty and they work. There is none of the usual BS about holding your keys in a clenched fist or testicle kicks. If you have any women you care about please make them read this.
I enjoyed this book. I thought the author had a lot of insight into antisocial behavior. I would disagree on his methods of taking out an attacker though. Just my two cents, but this book is definitely worth the read! Coach David Alexander(.com) World Famous Self Defense Expert
This book does precisely what it says on the tin: it provides a practical, clear, common sense, no-holds-barred approach to self defense for women. We live in a world where it's becoming increasingly common for people to tiptoe around uncomfortable subjects. Unfortunately applying that approach to self-defense prevents women from accessing much-needed information that could help them make choices that could keep them safe. Yes, "it's not fair" that we live in a world with nasty people in it - but that's the only world we have to live in. Ignoring the unpleasantness because it's "not fair" doesn't do anything to keep people safe. The suggestions this book present, on the other hand, could save lives. I also enjoyed the tone of the book, as it is very matter-of-fact and not preachy or condescending.
I agreed with almost everything in this book. It is a great book that every woman need to read, but read with an open mind. As a law enforcement officer myself, I can tell you "Captain Hook" is right about the world. Although the majority of people are okay, everyone know it only takes one to ruin everything. Don't be a victim, read this book and learn how.
