As featured on Dateline NBC in the U.S., "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 is not the female's size, it is her culturally induced ignorance that makes her think she is helpless. "Beauty Bites Beast" is a clarion call to "sleeping beauties" to wake up and take charge of their own self-defense -- both verbal and physical -- and celebrates women (and kids) who fought back. Funny and provocative, this is an irreverent, but deadly serious look at how family, religion, history, news and entertainment keep women thinking they are defenseless. "Beauty Bites Beast" changes and saves lives.
