Good tips bad audio!

It dosent even sound like he is really reading, sounds like it's all cut and pasted together every word. It's seriously hard to listen to, better off reading the physical book.

terrible narration

even listening at 2x the normal speed the narration was terrible with odd pauses consistent throughout. the advise is solid but I felt like he was taking a lot from Gavin Dr Beckers book "The gift of fear".

Important information, painfully bad narrator

Great and informative book, but the narrator was BAD. Couldn't pronounce several words, awkward pauses galore... And I mean.. A ton of them. Just hard to listen to.

good material

As a self protection instructor myself I find much of this book to be useful and full of good ideas.

As an audible book its not my favorite. The reader speaks in a staccato like fashion and it's clear that it was not recorded continuously.

The definitive guide to safety and self-defense for females !

Can't recommend this book enough. It is compelling from page one, well written and very engaging. The perfect gift for the women in your life that you love and care about. As the mother of a daughter who is about to leave for college we are grateful for this comprehensive knowledge.

PDF problem solved

When I first got the book the PDF was missing, rendering the self defence explanations a bit useless. But the Audible customer service fixed the problem. I find this book is REALLY useful and a must read for any woman. A few people complained about the audio. It’s a tiny bit choppy but in no way does it make it hard to listen to. The audio is clear and the content is great.
