A very useful book for anyone who wonders about bullying among children, as a parent or an educator.
This is informed, level-headed writing, which tells you more than the usual clichés by helping readers understand how the bullies may have become what they are, and how the bystanders just watch-- it's not just due to fear of retaliation from the bullies.
The writer passionately believes that all three types are not cast in those roles forever.
She is very positive (as educators usually are), and it's not her fault if I still have many doubts about adults' ability to change things after reading her book.
At least understanding things better is a first step.
