A Holiday Book in Review: The Action Heroine's Handbook

The Action Heroine's Handbook By: Jennifer Worick and Joe Borgenicht
Non-fiction 185 pages
Book Count: 84

This book explains how to do many of the things you see heroines do in TV and movies. It is divided into 5 chapters: tough chick skills, beauty skills, brain skills, brawn skills and escape skills. Each chapter has a mixture of skills that might be useful in your life and ones you would never need to know. Some of the skills taught are drinking someone under the table, giving birth outside a hospital/birthing center or other place one normally does it, eavesdrop, go undercover, be a mob wife, win a catfight, choke someone with your thighs, fight the undead, outrun a tornado and have a rooftop chase. It also has appendixes on what to have in your handbag and how to style your hair like famous action heroines.
