At some point in their lives, nearly everyone experiences being bullied: by brothers, sisters, neighbours, adults and schoolmates. Many people dismiss it as 'a normal part of one's development'. But it isn't.Bullying can ruin people's lives. In some extreme cases, it can even lead to self-harming, suicide and even murder.This book brings together some of the most profoundly moving stories of people whose lives were on the brink of ruin but who fought back against all odds and beat their bullies.For some, the bullying went on for years; for others it was less frequent. And in each case, it took a different form - from gang bullying, workplace bullying, verbal bullying, or the newest form: cyber and text bullying. But one thing they all have in common is their determination and courage to stand up to their tormentors.Challenging, powerful and inspiring, "Beating the Bullies" celebrates the victims and their fighting spirit.
