Are these for real? Safe In The City ...

Through a weird route on Amazon (looking up lock picking, something I always wanted to learn), I ended up in Street Survivalist land. From this one: Safe In The City : A Streetwise Guide To Avoid Being Robbed, Raped, Ripped Off, Or Run Over, I learned that other customers had looked at these titles too:

I'm especially impressed that the original Fugitive! sold well enough to justify a sequel; did all those guys on the lam write to the publisher asking for advice on how to thrive--instead of just survive--outside the law? Are they sitting in their sleazy pay-per-night hotels with a stack of self-help books by the bed?
