Overview

Don't get nervous, be prepared! -- read Protecting Yourself Against Criminals. Recent events have made us all more security conscious, but, as this book shows, criminal activity is nothing new. The stakes have been raised, but being alert and prepared remains the best defense. The same applies to the menace of sexual predators and stalkers. Many young women were murdered by the dreadful Ted Bundy -- but several escaped when they took heed of warning bells sounding in their heads. Burglars go for easy targets, and the author explains how you can make your property, if not impregnable, at least very hard to get into. Dangerous new threats, such as home invasion and carjacking, call for new rules for all the family. Confidence tricks have always come in an amazing variety of guises -- and still do. They range from "free holidays" to unnecessary medical tests as well as sure-thing investment scams.
