Chris Beck played high school football. He bought a motorcycle, much to his mothers dismay, at age 17. He grew up to become a U.S. Navy SEAL, serving our country for twenty years on thirteen deployments, including seven combat deployments, and ultimately earned a Purple Heart and the Bronze Star. To everyone who saw him, he was a hero. A warrior. A man. But underneath his burly beard, Chris had a secret, one that had been buried deep inside his heart since he was a little boy-one as hidden as the panty hose in the back of his drawer. He was transgender, and the woman inside needed to get out. This is the journey of a girl in a mans body and her road to self-actualization as a woman amidst the PTSD of war, family rejection and our societys strict gender rules and perceptions. It is about a fight to be free inside ones own body, a fight that requires the strength of a Warrior Princess. Kristins story of boy to woman explores the tangled emotions of the transgender experience and opens up a new dialogue about being male or female: Is gender merely between your legs or is it something much bigger?

This book has been denounced by the author. She has stated: 'The book 'Warrior Princess' is not the real story. It was a manipulation of my emotions, PTSD, and my duress from SEAL teams and transition into my new life.'

I too, agree the book is poorly written and inaccurate.
