Why write this book?

"I wanted this information out there for anybody who has ever been assaulted, or victimized by a bigger, or stronger person. If you’ve ever “cowered in the corner,” be it physically or emotionally, I want you to have the confidence, and the ability, to stand up to bigger and stronger persons, whether it’s on the street or in the office."
