I have been given a copy of the book National Security Mom to giveaway to one lucky reader!

About the book:

How Do We Solve Our National Security Challenges?

In the wake of the war on terrorism, it seems today’s parents are constantly bombarded with news of the latest threats and messages of fear. But how do we achieve national security or even protect our children when we feel so insecure?

National Security Mom, by 20-year veteran of the intelligence community and mother of five, Gina Bennett, answers this burning question through an insider perspective on national security and a unique “soft” approach to achieving it.

National Security Mom examines how many of the age-old, practical lessons we teach our children, such as “clean up your mess,” “tell the truth” and “don’t give in to a bully,” apply to the covert intelligence approach to national security. Through these comparisons, Bennett empowers America’s parents to engage with confidence in the national security debate and reinforces the fact—true and lasting security is a nationwide effort that begins at home.

About the Author:

A Senior Counterterrorism Analyst, Gina Bennett has authored some of the earliest warnings of today’s terrorism trends, including the 1993 report that warned of the growing danger of Osama Bin Laden and the extremist movement he was fomenting.

Her analysis has been called “prescient,” “genius” and “prophetic” by major media and former government officials who recognize the insightfulness of her work nearly a decade later.

While serving as the Senior Deputy National Intelligence Officer for Transnational Threats, she was the principal author of the hotly debated 2006 National Intelligence Estimate “Trends in Global Terrorism: Implications for the U.S.”

Mom of five, Ms. Bennett is equally comfortable making copies of “Yam Jam” at the elementary school as briefing the President on terrorism trends, and can be seen doing both on the same day! Ms. Bennett says,

“For much of my career, I mistakenly led two separate lives—terrorism analyst by
day and mom by night. But over the years I realized that everything I ever
needed to know about securing our nation I learned as a child and practiced in
parenting my own children. By sharing this knowledge and my experience, I hope
all mothers will take up the mantle of national security mom in their own

Thanks so much for giving this away, looks like it would be a great book to read.

This would be an interesting book to read.

I am a nutty great gram who is up worrying over a 4 1/2 yr old great grandson. Saw this site by accident and this book likes very enlightening. In my young days we never worried about terror or were afraid to go to school. How sad for children now. Many will come but few will win.

I'd love to read this :)
