Beauty Bites Beast is not a "how-to" book. It is a "how-come" book every woman and girl needs to know "how-to" defend themselves. They, like all the females of other species in the world, are capable of defending themselves and their loved ones-- if they learn how. It i not the female's size, it is her culturally induced ignorance that makes her think she is helpless.
