How to be Safe in an Unsafe World

How to Be Safe in an Unsafe World is a comprehensive study of methods for preventing the intrusions of a would-be criminal by simple preparation—preparation which creates what the author calls a “constructive paranoia” within the aggressor, stopping potential problems before they become so serious that you must resort to violence. It can help you provide greater personal security as well as safety in the home, in your neighborhood, and at your church or business. One section of the book deals with personal protection techniques, from self-confidence to, as a very last resort, the use of a gun. For home security, this book offers sensible suggestions for securing doors and windows, constructing sturdy roofs and fences, and the effective placement of trees and shrubs. You can even learn to construct a hiding place for valuables. The author compares alarm systems, citing the advantages and disadvantages of each. He even includes instructions for training your four-footed alarm. Whether you live in an apartment in the city or in a rural or farm area, you can feel secure by implementing the ideas of this book.
