Okay if you are interested in self-defense and personal protection then I am going to recommend some great books and TV shows. Knowledge is power and while anything you read and or see/hear should always be double checked for accuracy we can learn a lot from certain authors and tv series.
First up here are some good personal protection books:
Facing Violence by Rory Miller: http://www.amazon.com/Facing-Violence-Unexpected-Rory-Miller/dp/1594392137
Meditations on Violence by Rory Miller: http://www.amazon.com/Meditations-Violence-Comparison-Martial-Training-ebook/dp/B00LXN3V0E/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1427492177&sr=1-1&keywords=meditations+on+violence
Self Defense: What it costs when its worth it: http://www.amazon.com/Name-Self-Defense-What-costs-worth/dp/0692250212/ref=sr_1_sc_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1427492099&sr=1-1-spell&keywords=Self+defense++by+marc+mcyoung
The Gift of Fear by Gavin De Becker: http://www.amazon.com/Other-Survival-Signals-Protect-Violence/dp/0440508835/ref=pd_sim_b_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=089ER24A2DMG40FH0JFN
Now when it comes to great shows to watch on TV regarding personal protection the following ones are really good!

Now obviously laws do vary from state to state so make sure you consult with a local lawyer and know your local laws in your city and state!
