New Book on Bullying from Emily Bazelon — Pre-Order for Special Extras

posted by Nell Minow

Emily Bazelon’s first book, Sticks and Stones, comes out this month.  Her Slate series about bullying included illuminating research that altered the conventional narrative of some highly publicized real-life cases.  The book builds on this with new stories about kids and schools, and new discussion of the relevant research about bullying — its causes and the most effective ways to respond and prevent it.  To express her gratitude for pre-orders, Emily has put together a package of giveaways for Slate readers who buy the book before the publication date.

Anybody who orders the book — hardcover or e-book, from any bookseller — before February 19, 2013, will receive the following:

1.    A free one-hour webinar with Emily – with an exclusive look at the latest developments in research about bullying and kids’ behavior online, along with a chance to ask her questions.

2.    Three free PDF resource guides Emily has written, highlighting books, movies, and programs that fight bullying, tailored to educators, parents, and students.

3.    A free PDF of a Q&A with Emily, delving into some of the topics in the book in greater and more personal detail.

4.    A free STICKS AND STONES book plate, signed by Emily and mailed to you, to paste inside your book.

Once you pre-order the book, or if you’ve done so already, just forward your receipt in any form to emilypreorder@gmail.com to get information about how to receive the extras.

List: The Best Movie Con Games and Grifters
In honor of this week's release of "Focus," here are some of my favorite movies about con games and grifters. Remember that "con" comes from "confidence."
