"Martial arts experts Loren W. Christensen and Lisa Place teach you to use your hands, forearms, elbows, teeth, knees, and feet to survive the attacks unsuspecting women become the victims of every day.

"The stories in this book—told by cops and prostitutes themselves—reveal the dark humor, poignancy, sadness, sordidness, and violence that is part of the world's oldest profession. Some will make you laugh out loud, others will make you wince, a few may offend, but all will educate you about the reality of street prostitution."
"Surviving Workplace Violence provides you with solid information about what to do when gunfire or any other type of violence erupts where you work. This easy-to-read guide covers what to do before an incident to increase your safety and how to react when violence explodes."
"Within the pages of this book... are ideas and techniques to [learn]:
when to run, how to run
when to hide, how to hide
when to fight and how to fight.
You will not find denial within these pages but rather truth and honesty about a horrific event that most assuredly—that most assuredly—will happen again."
"Written from a cop's view, this book explains who the skinheads are, who their targets are, why they are so violent, how and where they operate, what weapons they favor and what danger they pose to society and police."
"Ten years ago gangbangers fought with fists, clubs and pistols. Now they have lots of incredible firepower, and they don't think twice about using it. Here, Christensen lets gang members, former gang members and street cops tell you in their own words how gangbangers think, why they are so violent, who they target and what (if anything) can be done to curb the growth of gangs in America."
" ... Self-Defense Against a Dog Attack, addresses an aspect we seldom think about, probably because most dogs, unlike human predators, are not our natural enemies... Having grown up around dogs and having owned a few, I can honestly say I've been fortunate, because I've never needed to defend myself against a dog. Having said that, I can now say I am much better prepared to deal with a dog attack than I was before I read this book!"
Loren W. Christensen
"[Focuses] on the most infrequent but most challenging part of the police profession: the use of deadly force. This book is not about specific laws, tactics, or equipment, but how the science of human performance influences the people behind the badge. This knowledge is crucial for physical, legal, and emotional survival."
