"Why are females of other specis as fiece in self-defense as males - except for humans? Ellen Snortland takes on the politics of learned helplessness, and clears a path back to natural female strength. Any woman who feels defenseless - physically or verbally - will be helped by Beauty Bites Beast."... Gloria Steinum

"Beauty Bites Beast is energizing, unnerving, exhilarating and infuriating. It is a riveting and compelling look at an urgent and timely topic. This is a brave book. Snortland's confidence is contagious."... Kathryn Gravdal, Graduate Director, Institute for Research on Women and Gender, Columbia University

"Beauty Bites Beast is an incendiary book. It will light a flame of self-respect in reader after reader. Ellen Snortland's passionate and affable voice takes the notion of self-defence to a whole new dimension. And I believe she's got it absolutely right. Because only as each becomes strong will all be safe--and waiting for male predators and perpetrators to mend their ways is a fool's game."... John Stoltenberg, Author of Refusing to be a Man and The End of Manhood: A Book for Men of Conscience

" I recommend that every man read Beauty Bites Beast . Entertaining and accessible, it clarifies what girls and women face when confronting the threat of violence, and offers practical methods for avoiding or defending against it. Professionally, I spent 28 years with the Los Angeles Police Department and was the commanding Officer of Detective Headquarters for many years. Personally, I've spent thirty-five years as a husband and the father of two grown daughers. This is a must-read for any man who wants to help end violence against women."... Captain Robert Martin (LAPD Ret.)

"In this highly readable book, Ellen Snortland provides a practical, sensible, and timely survival manual for females of all ages. May the day come soon when such a book no longer will be needed. But until then, this fine training guide can help countless women protect themselves."... Gail Berendzen, President Women of Washington

"Beaty Bites Beast is not a "how-to" book. It is a "how-come" book that every woman and girl needs "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 the 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 entertainm,ent keep women thinking they are defenseless. Beauty Bites Beast changes and saves lives. Ellen Snortland's passion to empower women comes through every page of this book. It is really an eye opener"... Patricia Irerland, President, National Organization for Women
