There has to be better protection manuals out there is my tl;dr review for this.
Not only was the author condescending and patronizing to the reader, it was reaching Silver RavenWolf's levels. I was offended as a reader, I would be really offended if I was a fan of her works. Also her attitude towards anyone who curses, regardless of reasons, was just ugh. There are valid reasons for cursing people. *shakes fist* There was so much bitterness seeping through the pages, I feel like I have to cleanse my kindle app. :P
Also her chapter about physical fitness is just wrong and offensive. I could buy maybe taking martial arts or a self-defense course, but everything else was just not a good look. I say this as someone who works out, but is still plus sized (and I'm not bothered by that fact).
There was nothing really new here, and there were a few things that I did love, mostly a spell or a ritual here and there.
There were more personal stories then actual how-to, which is not always a bad thing, but it irritated the fuck out of me while reading.
Received this book for free, ethically, from tuebl.
