What people are saying…..
“This book little book is so valuable because the content it holds. Lives can truly be saved, and protected. Many crimes can be prevented because of lack of opportunity. The advice in this little book is awesome! In this book I am told:
The things I need to do for safety.
• I am reminded of the importance doing the things I already know to do.
• It gives me some new things to do for safety that I never would have thought of.
I learned so much in such a short time such as:
• New Ideas to protect myself -“waiting until the garage door close before getting out of the car.”
• Things you should find out before appointments such as repair – “Make and model of vehicle, Name and description of representative”
• When you have to let someone in to do work what to put away, and what to Keep out and ready.
• Having the “ICE” numbers in place for easy and ready access.
The List just goes on and on. You just will be amazed at how much powerful information is packed in this little dynamo of a book!

It tells you the practical thing you can and should do to be safe form. The place you live to traveling safely. It is an awesome piece of work.

“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
“I found The Busy Woman’s Pocket Guide to Safety to be excellent! It plainly and succinctly provides women – or anyone – with sensible and essential tips on how to increase the likelihood of remaining safe in situations where one may be vulnerable.
Thompson covers a gamut from choosing a place to live, to how to live alone. She shows you that sometimes it’s the little things that count the most. The tips given in the book will open your eyes that what you may do – or don’t do – can make all the difference.
It is a fast read but delivers much wisdom in an upbeat way. No one is too busy to read and learn from this book!
I recommend that everyone get a copy of The Busy Woman’s Pocket Guide to Safety and gift it to other busy – and not so busy -women!
You’ll want to refer to the book from time to time to keep alert. Caution: Don’t loan it out. It is that good.” Karen Dabney, Owner of Dabs & Company
