Survive the Unthinkable - a short review

I purchased 'Survive the Unthinkable' from the folks at Target Focus Training - and am writing a short review here.
The information in the book, while written primarily for women, is applicable to all people, regardless of their sex.
Covering the basics of mindset, awareness, and the Target Focus Training (TFT) methodologies, it presented a great introduction to the system, which hopefully will lead to further training.
I have had training in similar systems before (SCARS, a TFT 2-day training session) as well as traditional martial arts, and found the material very beneficial. 
The book is fairly short, with minimal illustrations/photos. This is not a 'he does this, you do technique X' type of book - stressing the principles of TFT rather than the techniques.
There is some repetition of material, but this may be because the points are important and need to be stressed more than once.

I recommend this book, and hope it will lead its readers to get more training in self protection.
