Me thinks

As a woman since the time I can remember I have always witnessed eve teasing and molestation throughout my growing up years both in school and college. All this took a very different form in the corporate world not to forget the increase in the rape cases around the country.

Every day as I read about them in the newspaper I feel scared though I am black belt in self defense but somehow it all feels inadequate suddenly.

The moment I saw this book it reminded me of the times when I had learnt such tricks that would help me safe guard myself whenever need be. The beauty of this book is its simplicity and the photographs which help you understand the positions and actions that need to be taken.

An out and out informative book completely and a must read for every woman in today’s times to keep herself updated about all that she needs to know and not know too!
