Editorial Reviews

David H. Goldenberg
This is truly a text that all parents and educators need to read to understand not only the origins and background of bullying, but what we all must do in both the identification, prevention and dealing with the consequences of such behavior. I also strongly believe that the structure of the text, including major areas of discussion of academic importance and implication for future teachers, makes it a valuable classroom text in preparation programs for teachers and administrators throughout the country. This text is rich in academic research yet reader-friendly for educators and parents alike. It is simply one of those books that all of us concerned with the issue of bullying should have on our shelves. I know that I will be using it.
Bill Voors
This book is a welcome resource for education professionals as well as those in the mental health field. It has a wealth of useful and practical ideas that will help to make our schools the safe and nurturing places they need to be for our children. I would recommend this book to be in the professional resource library of every K–12 school.
