“I found your book insightful, informational and easy to read. I spent 31 years as a police command officer in the Detroit Police Department and your book would have saved hundreds of women from being victims of assaults, purse snatching, car and home break-ins, and other serious crimes had they read your information.”
Roosevelt Lawrence, Marygrove College Campus Security
“Carla Thompson is not only an author, she is also a crime prevention specialist, who has researched women as victims of crime. As I pointed out earlier, Carla has written this booklet based on her own experiences. She lived on her own while working and going to school at night, and travelled internationally.
I liked this booklet because it was a quick read, that was filled with simple, common sense advice. Since I borrowed the copy I read, I’ve decided to buy at least one copy, for my daughter, a college student who lives in an off-campus apartment. I worry about her every day! If she at least takes Carla’s “date diary” advice, I’d be happy!” Camille Goscicki, AKA Bea Boomer
