Reviews - What do customers think about Be Safe!?

Great Business or Thank You Gift!  Nov 15, 2007
I enjoyed reading it and learned some interesting things but I've also gotten lots of mileage out of using it as a business or thank you gift.
Relevant and Charming   Dec 18, 2004
This book is brimming with tons of useful and eye-opening tips that channel the hypochondriac in everyone. The author has done an exhaustive amount of research on the hazards of our day to day choices--many of which I have never even thought twice about. The mini packaging makes it an adorable and handy gift.
This book should be read by all parents/adults. Educate your children on how to keep germ free and be consistant with that teaching. Many illnesses/deaths can be avoided by following the simple steps given in this book.

This book is chock full of great tips. It's breezy and informative style is definitely geared for those who love trivia and for the compulsive worrier! It's attractively packaged and fits into a stocking.
BE SAFE a great safe gift  Nov 29, 2004
BE SAFE is a safe gift that I am giving to all my loved ones. It is a humorous approach to many of the kinds of problems that you want to save them from without being preachy.
