Giveaway! National Security Mom! Ends TODAY HURRY!
So I have been reading this book, called National Security Mom: Why Going Soft Will Make America Strong by Gina M. Bennett
The book is available from AMAZON for $19.20 (and free shipping for orders $25 or more)
It's really interesting - and very unique as it presents security issues from a female perspective. Not only that but from a MOM's perspective.
The author draws similarities between how we parent, and how to 'parent' our nation.
Gina M. Bennett has spent over 20 years in the US Intelligence Community and working in counterterrorism.
She is also the proud mother of 5.
The book aims to empower all, but mothers in particular to apply the common sense rules we use raising our children to deal with our country's issues.
"By comparing the expertise parents gain while running their households to the skills required to govern, "National Security Mom" empowers America's parents to engage with confidence in the public national security debate. The simple premise, that everything we need to know about securing our nation we have learned from our family life, offers hope that no matter what security challenges America faces, our nation will be proud and secure." (Amazon Review)
While parenting is a major part of the book’s theme, it is more likely to be of interest to readers looking for current events, national security, and foreign policy debates. It’s not a politically dense book, but a highly approachable read, with anecdotes from Bennett’s personal work and parenting experiences highlighting her recommendations.
To help promote the book, I was lucky enough to be asked to give away a really cool long sleeve tee with the National Security Mom emblem on it valued at $23.99! Shirt comes in sizes small to 2x.
