As someone who has lived through a neighbor from hell situation where the safety of my children was at risk, I can tell you that the conventional wisdom on conflict resolution is worse than useless in NFH cases. NFH do their very best to cause misery in others because they derive a sick pleasure from it. A true NFH has Anti-social personality disorder. These sick people do not respond to mediation or negotiation since they only lie their way through it. A true NFH will try to convince law enforcement and judges that they are in fact the victim of your harassment. This is a game to these sick people, and when you have been singled out as a target, life can become a living hell. Bob Borzotta is the only author to date who truly understands this.

Bob offers us a voice of reason and compassion in a time of crisis. He offers us real solutions and perhaps a different way to think about the problem. But most of all he lets us know that we aren't alone. We aren't the only people who have been targeted for warfare by a sick neighbor, we aren't the only ones who have been ignored by law enforcement, we aren't the only ones who have been told that mediation should have cured the problem. We aren't crazy.

Thank you Bob, keep up the fine work.

Format: Paperback
What a read! Half the book is now rendered in yellow highlight. Everyone who picks up Neighbors From Hell (probably based on the title and probably because they are suffering NsFH) will "get" every word, they will feel the weight of the world lift from their shoulders, and they will catch a glimpse of a far off promised land. This book will provide the spark to rekindle the soul extinguished by evil neighbors.

The author's use of earthy phrases kept me entertained throughout the read. The most hilarious ones were set up as, "... unless one of them moves away or is [insert a spectacular, public method of getting killed]. Feed the fantasy! Everyone needs the uplift of humor during the seemingly endless darkness. The book is liberally sprinkled with anecdotes of antisocial behaviors and some real life methods of overcoming - or retraining! - the perps.

The flow of thought was interrupted by an apparent omission on page 112, first paragraph under #8. The phrase, "get a good night's sleep," was missing after the words "physical activity." Further reflection led me to believe the missing phrase was deliberate. Who can sleep in such circumstances?

The hardest parts to swallow, however, were regarding diplomacy on my part. Remaking my internal self, even on the basic level outlined, is where the real battle is. I tried the personal, diplomatic approach four years ago (before this book), before engaging the city, then the courts. Yet changing my inner self did not change the facts; the NsFH still exist and merely moved on to another illegal business; city officials still ignore; police still protect the scofflaws; courts and lawyers still soak up money and time, and exhaust patience.

Mr. Borzotta has lived the nightmare.

After 4+ years with a NFH, it was through sheer desperation that I found Mr. Borzotta's website. It has been a life-saving and sanity-saving haven. The book is a must read for anyone who has a NFH, and should be a must read for all LEO's. It should also be on every town hall's bookshelf, right next to the town ordinances and statutes; every HOA's community center; every condo-boards bookshelf; and every apartment owners/managers bookshelf! I highly recommend the book and would like to thank Mr. Borzotta for writing it.

The book "Neighbors from hell" by Bob Borzotta is inspiringly technical in its description of how to handle conflict close to home. It informed me, entertained me, and educated me while relating to my own experience with a nfh over the past 6 years While dealing with harrasment, bullying, noise disturbances/pollution, unfriendliness, competition, stress without end, and emotional heartache that is a constant,etc. Having gone through this experience and then reading neighbors from hell I can look back and see what i did right and what I did wrong. If i however would have known about this book and known of the information in it I then could have been easily helped and guided through a shorter process that led me to a solution of peace.
In a nutshell bob takes you through options you have as a nfh victim, testimonies of other nfh victims, his own testimonies, and how to solve these conflicts. The book does go into much detail for those who need specific instructions. When it comes down to it though I feel he says in the end, you have to move, sue them, or go through the options that he writes about that may help solve a problem and bring peace or at least bring you back to a life of contentment (#1 step was to talk calmly to the neighbor FACE TO FACE first). I do however wish the conclusion was as detailed as the entire book and was left craving for more answers and/or even a sequel. i have a deep respect and admiration for Bob and what he does and has been through. I feel as though he is truly trying to handle things maturely as an adult and within the confines of the law. Please read this book if you are in any stage of battle between neighbors. It is full of options that may work for you in your struggle and prevent you from making mistakes that may cost you major to minor mistakes.
