Here are some book reviews and awards
that show why the books are a must for your family.

  “Cartoon-style illustrations add a touch of light humor to this very serious and practical guide to minimizing the odds of dangerous or fatal accidents… a well-rounded, erudite, and first-rate primer warning of obvious and subtle daily hazards. Highly recommended; careful perusal of the pages could potentially save lives.”

Rated 5 of 5 stars on Amazon by The Midwest Book Review

  “This is a worthwhile, readable volume ... and it is organized  for easy reference. Of course, not all accidents can be  prevented. Still, if more of us took Myre’s suggestions to heart, our world would be a lot safer.”

— St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The purpose of
The Safety Book For Your Family,
Live Safely in a Dangerous World, and
The Safety Book For Kids

is to help you and your loved ones lead long
 and productive lives by avoiding accidents.

This information will help every family
member develop Personal Safety Plans,
which are a necessity to deal with
the hazards we face every day of our lives.

If you think accidents are just a remote possibility
for your family, here are the unpleasant facts:

  • This year over 120,000 people of all ages will die in accidents in the U.S.

  • Over 37,000,000 (about 1-in-8) of us will suffer injuries this year that require professional medical attention. Some of these injuries are life-altering.

  • Lifetime odds of dying accidentally are about 1-in-30 for males, and 1-in-50 for females.

  • Accidents are the leading cause of death for kids, teens, and young adults, ages 1 to 42.



Live Safely in a Dangerous World (289 pages) is an award-winning book that was originally published as a paperback. Almost all topics are printed in a two-page format.

The Safety Book For Your Family (142 pages) is an updated e-book version of Live Safely in a Dangerous World. All topics are printed in a one-page format.

Both books have over 125 easy-to-read topics on Driving, Home, Leisure and General, and Kids' safety.

The information in The Safety Book For Kids comes from the The Safety Book For Your Family.


A unique feature of the books is the use
of light-humored illustrations and true
stories to help get the points across.

  For years, Gail kept her favorite captain’s chair with its comfortable seat cushion beside her kitchen pantry. Not only was it an attractive piece of furniture, it was also perfect to stand on for reaching objects stored high in the pantry. On a stylistic whim, she replaced the flat cushion with a thicker version. The next time she climbed onto the chair, the surprising thickness of the new cushion caused her to lose her balance and crash to the floor, injuring her shoulder and striking her head.



 ● To keep you and your loved ones safe, you will have at your fingertips over 3,000 safety tips. These tips came from hundreds of safety experts.

 ● You can use these tips to tailor Personal Safety Plans for the safety of every family member.

 ● Safety plans are not static; they must change with the seasons, and as your family and activities change.
