I read this book after reading Emily Bazelon’s articles on Slate.com. Bazelon examines bullying from multiple angles. She writes about the perspectives and experiences of victims of bullying, accused bullies, parents, teachers, school administrators, and research scientists who study the topic. Towards the end of the book she describes some success stories from people who have tried different tactics to end bullying. Overall, the book covers a lot of ground on what is a very complicated issue.
