Long ago, the author gave away this book for free on one of her websites. It is a short story that demonstrates the principles behind Verbal Self-Defense. It was later printed by a publishing company called Lethe Press. I am unsure if this company still even exists and used copies of this book are hard to find at any sort of reasonable price. Both humorous and insightful, it is well worth a read! Here is a PDF of the above webpages compiled into a single document in order to make it easier to do just that. This PDF is shared here for research purposes only!
