For every woman who wants to be as tough as Lara Croft, as nimble as the Bionic Woman, and as babe-a-licious as Charlie's Angels, The Action Heroine's Handbook shows how to conquer the bad guys in virtually any situation. This sequel to The Action Hero's Handbook (more than 150,000 copies in print!) features step-by-step illustrations and instructions on profiling a serial killer, going undercover as a beauty queen, navigating white water rapids, outwitting a band of home intruders, and more. All the information is reality based and comes from a host of experts (including stuntwomen, jujitsu instructors, and primatologists). Special sections and appendices highlight the top action heroine hairdos, handbag essentials, and the best footwear for every action situation.
