With her own offbeat brand of wit and near-wisdom, inspirational humorist Debora Coty addresses heart needs of women struggling to tame that out-of-control inner beast that unexpectedly pounces, roaring and shredding, as it threatens to destroy the divinely beautiful princess hidden within. In More Beauty, Less Beast, women will find simple, practical techniques for embracing the true beauty rightfully theirs as cherished daughters of the King. Whether jaded by emotional wounds, unrealistic standards, or lack of confidence, this laugh-out-loud, girlfriend-to-girlfriend encouragement will help women transform their destructive inner beast into the exquisite beauty they were always meant to be.

My take on this book:The author's style of writing in this book is very conversational which made me feel like I was sitting down to chat with a friend. The humor she uses as she shares her wisdom really makes this book a must read for women of all ages. Another great thing that I loved about this book is the fact that the author peppers scripture verses through out the book. In addition each chapter ends with several questions that had me pausing to reflect not only on what I read but how it pertained to me.
This book is broken down into four sections, with several chapters in each section that have such interesting titles that I just couldn't wait to see what they held in store. The sections are:
1. Outer Beauty
2. Inner Beauty
3.Undergarments by Fruit of the Spirit (Not The Loom)
4.Beautifying my world
The table of contents makes it very easy to navigate this book, the short chapters and overall size of this book make it a very portable read, one that I am still carrying in my purse so that I can pull it out whenever I have a few minutes to read. .A book that I would easily recommend to all of my female friends because it touches base on so many issues that we all struggle with, also this book had me laughing out loud on several occasions and we all know that laughter is the best medicine!
