**Some quotes have been shortened to include only what was relevant, but nothing has been added or manipulated to make it sound different from the way it was originally intended.**

I was browsing netgalley when I caught sight of this book and my curiosity was piqued, despite the fact that I don't read too much non-fiction. Upon reading the description, I realised that this book is claiming to help people raise their daughters in a way that won't get them raped and/or murdered throughout their lif

Most sexual assaults and murders occur where? In the home. How does Brown advise you to keep your daughter safe? Keep her at home all the time: homeschool her, never let her out to the mall.

I don't believe Brown has a very strong grasp of reality or logic or risk assessment.
According to this book, the only way to save your daughters is to home-school them, never let them experience real life and give them no preparation whatsoever in regards to the real world.

Oh, and all men are potential rapists.

Yeah, right.

Other than her rant against Harry Potter this book makes a lot of sense. No, it's never ok if a woman is raped or killed...but do women sometimes put themselves in situations that make rape or murder much more likely? Of course they do. And if they're smart, they'll try to avoid those situations, and (contrary to all the frenzy of hate in other reviews) that is ALL this book is trying to say. There's nothing wrong with 'old-fashioned' values.

The comments to this book reflects the need for he book. Our society,if you call it that, is very hostile towards the integrity of women and that is shown by the comments on this book.

I received an ARC for this, and the only thing I can say is that this book was absolutely horrible.

The main message that this author is trying to portray is that you can only keep your daughter safe by keeping her in your house, homeschooling her, and closely monitoring any interactions she may have with anybody of the opposite gender i.e uncles, step-fathers, friends, teachers.

Are you kidding me? This book was a piece of BS.

How are you supposed to let your own daughter grow up if you're hoveri

Parents who might buy my book should be aware that most of the "reviews" below are from people who did not read the book but are basing their assessment of it on one review that completely misrepresents what was said in the book. For example, I never said all men are rapists or that everyone should homeschool their daughter or lock her in the house and never let her out. I urge parents to understand the world their daughters live in and work to educate her and make her world safe. The vicious re ...more

Every female should read this book. Every Mom, Grandmother, Aunt, etc. Daughters long as they are old enough to understand. We can not stick our heads in the sand on the idea that we are protecting our daughters from the bad in the world. We need to get the information out there ( even if it is scary,gross,harsh) so out daughters are able to protect themselves from the nasty! READ IT!!!

The author draws upon her experience as a criminal profiler to give suggestions to parents on what to tell daughters. How to identify predators is one topic.
