My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book was written by Ky Furneaux who broke her back at age 19 but thru her training and perseverance later became a stunt woman in Hollywood.
Her book is divided up into 4 sections: think positive, be prepared, be adaptable, and educate yourself.
I really liked the think positive section the best! That section talks about attitude, comfort zones, having a mantra, etc.
"Look after yourself in the short-term so that you can defend yourself in the long-term. The healthier you are and the better shape your body is in, the more likely you will be able to deal with unexpected situations."
Her book offers advice like when you're in the city to carry your purse in front of you so that it's not stolen and advice like when you're in the woods and need to find more water. She shares alot of survival skill tips to use in the outdoors, as well as tips in public places.
She also shares personal stories and pictures thru out the book which is fun.
This book is a great resource for women-like a mini boy scout book!
I received this book complimentary for blog review-all opinions are my own.

The Superwoman's Survival Guide: Conquering the Unexpected in the Office, on the Town, or in the Great Outdoors
Just when you think you have everything under control, a situation presents itself that you couldn’t have foreseen or prepared for. That’s life. It’s how you choose to react to the situation that defines you. We have all heard the phrase “expect the unexpected.” The “unexpected” can range from a broken high heel on your way to an important meeting to having to fashion a waterproof shelter in the middle of a downpour.
From her years as an A-list Hollywood stuntwoman and expert survivalist, Ky Furneaux is no stranger to the unexpected, and her ’tude has been key to her survival—and thriving success. In The Superwoman's Survival Guide, Ky draws upon her career of risking life and limb in extreme situations to inspire and empower women in whatever situation they may find themselves, whether it’s on a city street or out in the wilderness.
Throughout the book, Ky explains the power of brain versus brawn and how a cool-headed woman is often more effective in a complicated situation than a big guy with a gun. Ky’s guide is a collection of essential life advice, combined with tricks, lessons, facts, and anecdotes that can help women get over their fear and panic.
The Superwoman's Survival Guide shows women how to adopt a fearless attitude that can help them through all life experiences. It will empower women to feel confident and prepared so that they know what to do when all hell breaks loose.
