"A child who plays `the bully' dresses, speaks, and acts the part, as do `the bullied' and `the bystander.' It is the posturing, the words, the actions, and the consequences of these elements combined that is the concern of this book."

The above extract comes from the beginning of this extremely informative book by Barbara Coloroso. Coloroso, a former teacher, is an internationally recognized speaker, and author in the areas of parenting, teaching, school discipline, non-violent conflict resolution, reconciliatory justice, and grieving.

Besides telling the reader everything about the bully, the bullied, and the bystanders who observe the bullying, there are insights from selected others (psychologists, etc.) also included.

What makes this book especially powerful are the true stories of those children who "made a tragic and final exit" due to bullying. As Coloroso tells us:

"The common thread in all of these accounts is that these children are bullied relentlessly and, in most cases, the bullying went on without substantial objections, indignation, adequate intervention, or outrage."

Finally, to get the message of this book across effectively and to make it easy to access information, the author includes many lists. I found these most helpful.

In conclusion, this book, in my opinion, is the definitive guide to this problem. I leave you with some of the author's final words:

"The bully, the bullied, and the bystander--I hope you now have a clearer understanding of these roles and how the interactions involved in such role-playing, though common-place in our culture, are not healthy, not normal, certainly not necessary, and in fact are devastating to the children playing them.

I especially like the attention Coloroso gave to the role of the bystander. These people could turn the situation around if they could be brave enough to use their power.

Format: Paperback
I had the pleasure of not only meeting Barbara but watching her speak a few weeks ago. I was blown away by her presentation, ideas and solutions to the bullying epidemic. I work with teens-girls mostly-and the info in this book is invaluable to anybody working with kids or teens today. Bullying is a bigger issue than most of us would like to believe, but this book will open your eyes and show you what you can do make a difference whether at home or at school.

This book provides a different outlook on bullying from who can be held responsible to an effective way to serve justice. This book is good for anyone who works with children or adolescents.
