From the Back Cover

With her trademark no-nonsense approach, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Laura shows readers how to survive enemies—traitors, backstabbers, and saboteurs—at work and at home.

She's helped them cope with grief; shown them how to handle adversity; and set them on the path to understanding and living happy, well-adjusted lives.

And for the first time, she shares her own personal experiences with betrayal, humiliation, and pain, connecting with her readers as never before and putting this important subject into context.

Powerful and thought-provoking, in Surviving a Shark Attack (on Land), Dr. Laura gives her readers the emotional defenses they need to overcome the worst life will throw at them, whether it's a cheating spouse, a lying sibling, or a ruthless colleague.

I love this book! I listen to Dr. Laura as much as I can on Sirius/XM but this is the first book of hers I have read. She writes as if she is sitting down and talking to you one-on-one.

I have just gone through an intense divorce. The betrayal of him bedding someone else wasn't what hurt the most, it was his sabotage of my two businesses that were farm-based. Only two and a half months after I had retired from the military (and I had invested a decade of livestock breeding and the last five years of my military income into these businesses so I'd have employment in an uncertain economy) he left for work, and later that day sent me an email (yes, an email!) stating he was divorcing me. He stopped paying the mortgage, knowing there was no way I could save the place and my investments with the 25% retirement amount of what I had been paid as active duty. This led to a year of his lies, deception, and manipulation of the courts, my friends and former co-workers trying to get them on "his side". With him being passive-aggressive, you can imagine the roller-coaster of the 6-1/2 year marriage that took place as I was preparing for my retirement. There was a saboteur from within the marriage and business. The worst kind of betrayal. And I had a plethora of emotions wondering what, if anything, would be a salve. I bought this book as soon as I saw it available. I'm glad I did!

Dr. Laura explains, through several examples of her own experiences, and a few of her callers to her show, that everyone has these emotions. It was comforting to know I'm really not alone in this, and unfortunately, there are evil (not just "mean") people who will do evil things to satisfy whatever they are lacking in, and good people are going to be targeted and hurt.

This book is a life saver (for me)! Very easy to read, very easy to understand and explains in a concrete manner how to overcome betrayal in everyday life. I highly recommend this book to everyone who needs some clear and healthy directions to live through betrayal on most levels. Some as I agree with Dr. Laura are unforgivable. It has brought clarity in my life and a new found peace and a level of understanding that I did not realize could exist. Can a book do all that? Yes!

I wish I had read this sooner. I have listened to her on and off for years, sometimes her lack of patience and obnoxiousness with her callers causes me to just change channels, but overall I agree with her stance on virtually all of her positions, and I appreciate that her voice is to support people doing the right thing, and resisting the huge push towards selfishness--especially where kids are concerned. I am proudly a stay-at-home mom and am glad for the supportive position Dr. Laura takes on that. .

I went through something years ago that this book would have helped and I kick myself for not having done my research and figured out how to solve what was going on, better. I would just say simply, if you are going through anything that involves you being betrayed by someone, whether it's a divorce or a job situation or a family mess or whatever-- this book is helpful, gives great pointers and advice on how to proceed when your world is being yanked out from under you. I found the advice extremely comforting and reassuring, and I think it will stop you from doing something stupid to retaliate. And remind you where your real, true priorities are (under the reactionary feelings). It's a fantastic read and very well written.

I am personally going through an ultimate betrayal and Dr. Laura's profound wisdom on this subject is astounding and has helped me to see things from a whole new perspective. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever been betrayed and I'm sure that includes the masses. This is an easy, to the point read and I loved it.

Dr Laura managed to share her pain and insights without making me want to run for the hills or negatively relive the attacks directed at me. We all are fellow shark attack survivors. Her thoughts further strengthened my resolve to remain positive and to continue to be a good person. Good read that helps influence the reader's life in a positive way.

Love this book!! Dr. Laura is exceptional with common sense advice, intertwined with good information & perspectives. There are many great individuals, and unfortunately, a few bad people too, in the world - this book "Surviving A Shark Attack (On Land)" - gives excellent points throughout the entire book; advice, perspectives, signs to watch out for in certain individuals & situations, what it truly means to forgive & let go (how to actually do that), and so on. Overall, detailed examples of how to really master the art of your emotions, so that you will allow yourself to live your incredible life. Internal peace of mind and happiness is priceless. Knowledge is Power. A must read! Another amazing book from Dr. Laura!!! =)
