Good solid overview of the role intuition plays in self-protection. I especially liked the focus on teaching skills at an earlier age for girls. Minor nitpick: the book goes out of scope at times by too broad a reach (how to build a safe room?) but in general, discusses difficult topics in a level, practical tone. Of note is that both the male and the female authors successfully grew past their own sexual attacks.
