The ideas presented in this book on how to handle bullies and being bullied are very sound. The ideas presented are ones that will in fact work. But I did have several problems with the book.

First was the over use of the word 'Dork', mostly in the beginning but also throughout. Every other word was dork, or dorky, to the point that I wanted to yell that we get it already, stop!
Next was the author comparing her adult experience of being stalked to being bullied and saying that her finally deciding to ignore and not be afraid of her stalker set her free. Great for her. But I have been stalked and if not for a twist of fate I would be dead at the hands of my stalker. She should have left that out. My stalker was harmless to, until he was not and had a gun.

Also, while her advice is sound, try telling any child or teen that they need to do something for a few years before seeing results and see how they react. They simply can't see that far ahead and it seems impossible to them. Although from my adult point of view her advice is great, children and teens simply do not think that way and may be put off by it.
I bought this book because my neice (or step neice, my sisters step daughter) was bullied for years and I have read up and tried to help. She is now 19 and in college. I passed this book along to her and she has the same problems with it as I do. And she is now an anti-bullying speaker and activast.
Lastly, the author, when speaking of 'Gay Bashing' says that studies show that those who gay bash are doing so because they are afraid they are gay themselves. This is really untrue. Sometimes it is true, I'm sure, but studies have really not shown that.

Although I agree with the author on many points and think this book is full of great ideas that will work I think that it is geared more to an adult mindset and not to that of the kids living this day in and day out.

The Bully Vaccine is an easily digestible book that contains true nuggets of wisdom. Aimed at pre-teens and teens and their parents, it covers topics such as what makes bullies tick, why kids should embrace their "inner dork" how to manage their fear when bullies target them, and the important role of bystanders. Perhaps one of the most important sections of this book deals with what to do if someone is already being bullied - in simple-to-understand terms, the author describes operant conditioning and how it serves as the foundation for getting bullies to focus their attention elsewhere. Add this book to your anti-bullying bookshelf.

This book is a quick read and offers many helpful suggestions for dealing with bullies. The simple suggestions are ones I wish I'd taught my own children when they were in elementary school. Of significance is the section that deals with distinguishing between "ignoring it and it will go away" and purposefully extinguishing the bullying behavior by an indifferent response. This is a tactic that will most likely be most effective for simple, verbal bullying and taunts with younger children (elementary school/middle school). However, I felt the author contradicted herself when she related her experiences with a stalker as an adult. If I read this correctly, she learned to cope with the stalker's presence by ignoring it. If ignoring a bully isn't effective, what was the purpose of using this example?

The author does a good job discussing today's hot topics of sexual and religious bullying, but doesn't address one of the most pervasive forms of bullying among teens today- that of social media. In today's cyber-world, bullying is so much more far-reaching and can be much more destructive than the simple school-yard taunts of days gone by. In an ideal world, every parent would share this book with their children and every teacher would immediately act and prohibit bullying in his/her classroom before the problem escalates into much more destructive destructive forms of cyber-bullying or physical violence. I do recommend that every parent of school-aged children read this book and discuss the issues with their children. This could serve to open communication and parents could have their eyes opened to what is going on in their child's school. In my opinion, as an educator, the value of this book is that it can be a valuable tool that encourages communication between parents, children and teachers/school personnel.

Useful information, especially as someone who was bullied as a child and has a child entering the school system in the next few years.

I wish it didn't do the standard how-to book thing, starting with twenty pages of "Here's one weird trick, you won't believe it when you hear it, but it works, I swear it works, are you ready to hear it, because I'm going to tell it to you, and I swear it works, though you won't believe it..." Once it gets to the actual meat of the argument, the information feels solid.

I say "feels" because the book lacks for sources. There are a few links out, but the book would benefit from a bibliography or at least a more comprehensive "for more information, read..." section. It doesn't feel like it's written with any authority. Indeed, Hancock's credentials on the subject seem to consist entirely of "I was bullied, my child was bullied, and I have a stalker."

Yeah, you read that right. Stalker. Hancock refers back to her stalker frequently, and it feels weird. She tries to tie it in to bullying, but finds that sweet spot where she does more than mention it and cite relevance but doesn't give enough context to make it fit. It's a detail that shows up frequently with just enough information to feel really weird. So, there's that.

So I like, and I get it, but I don't feel like I can really trust it.
