Review:

"This book has numerous practical and relevant suggestions. I liked the chapter summaries. The length of the book would appeal to me as a building level principal. This book could be purchased for an entire staff and used for a faculty book study." (Judy Brunner, Principal 2005-12-01)

"This is not just another book delineating the problem. It gives answers! The material is presented so it is applicable to elementary as well as secondary. It is easy to read, and the perfect length. I would recommend this book to any administrator or classroom teacher wanting information on bullying." (Ruth Gharst, Assistant Administrator 2005-12-01)

"Dr. Barton has bullying covered from beginning to end. The reader is left with a good sense of what bullying behaviors are, and how to start up, implement, and evaluate a bullying prevention program in school." (Elizabeth F. Day, Sixth Grade Teacher 2005-12-01)

"Provides techniques for implementation in both elementary and secondary classroom settings, exploring the psychology of bullies, providing case studies for understanding, and offering guidelines and solutions for intervention. A recommended pick for any school leader or teacher." (The Bookwatch, September 2006 2006-09-20)
