Award-winning author Debora Coty's newest book More Beauty, Less Beast brings humor and lightheartedness to the issues all women relate to in heavier moments. With wit and empathy, Coty addresses common body issues, our obsession with aging, and what God might have to say about it, all by helping readers laugh at her own story and share in the lessons she learned. With refreshing insight, she shows us a different perspective of how biblical, godly characters face their circumstances.
Each chapter is an entertaining and enlightening read and concludes with more serious questions for us to ask ourselves - to cement the lessons Coty brings home. More Beauty, Less Beast is about experiencing greater healing, joy, peace and beauty in life - both within and without.
"True beauty has nothing to do with dress size," says Coty. "I want readers to learn how to increase their confidence by conquering guilt, achieving personal goals, overcoming worry, and reinventing themselves through hope."
With the wit of Erma Bombeck and the wisdom of Dear Abby, Coty weaves a practical handbook into a fun, easy read. Patsy Clairmont calls Debora "delightful...invigorating". Readers living in a culture steeped in worldly values will find More Beauty, Less Beast a valuable guide as they face struggles common to us all.
I recommend Debora Coty's MORE BEAUTY LESS BEAST: TRANSFORMING YOUR INNER OGRE. She'll hook you with the real deal about the middle years, and her style of teaching will not let you go. Using her special brand of humor, she provides an amazing view of life and shows you how much better it can be.

Mrs. Coty kept me laughing throughout this book!
This book is hilarious! Prior to being contacted by Barbour Publishing to review this book, I was not familiar with Ms. Coty. Now I will be keeping an eye out for her titles! If you’re looking for a fun read or a gift for a favorite girlfriend, look no further! I am quite sure both of you will love it!
This book is for any woman who needs a little humor in her life and desires to feel beautiful. Ms. Coty used amazing quotes and scripture to breathe life into the book. She used God as the back bone, and her humorous writing to tickle your funny bone :-) The chapters were short; so if I needed to have a quick uplift of my spirit I could. Well written and beautifully poignant with a touch of humor made me enjoy this book thoroughly.
