Publisher's Summary

With her trademark no-nonsense voice and building on the principles developed during her long career as a licensed therapist, New York Times best-selling author Dr. Laura shows listeners how to survive enemies - traitors, backstabbers, and saboteurs - at work and at home.

In this long-awaited book, Dr. Laura turns to an emotionally explosive subject that has touched all of our lives: betrayal and the desire for revenge. And for the first time, she shares her own personal experiences with betrayal, humiliation, and pain, which has led her to a powerful desire for revenge. Intimate and honest, Dr. Laura connects with her listeners as never before.

Empathetic yet never saccharine, direct yet never harsh, Dr. Laura encourages listeners to explore their feelings and learn to get beyond them, finding the tools they can use to achieve fulfilling, contented lives free of rancor and the need to settle scores. Powerful and thought-provoking, Surviving a Shark Attack (on Land) gives listeners the emotional defenses they need for overcoming the worst life can throw at them, whether it's a cheating spouse, a lying sibling, or a ruthless colleague.

    "Dr. Laura Unleashed."

    Dr. Laura is an amazing woman. Her astounding insight and no-nonsense approach to her callers has made for some excellent radio over the years. As with most of her books this one has some very interesting and helpful advice. It bogs down with too many anecdotal examples from her radio show. Her abilities as a first rate broadcaster would make her the obvious choice to do the narration. Unfortunately she succumbs to the very common tendency among authors who narrate their own books. Her pace is way too fast and at times uninspired - probably the result of being so familiar with the material.

    "Learned Something"

    I really enjoyed this book. Dr. Schlessinger is great at explaining how not to get sucked into the drama of negative revenge. I love how she shares her own stories. I'm glad she is a survivor, that to me is the ultimate revenge. I respect her work even though sometimes I disagree with some of her opinions. The more I listen to her though the more agreeable I become! She is so smart. I believe we could all learn a few things from this book. If you have anger or hate because someone betrayed you take a listen and you might just start to heal.

    "Excellent Book!"
    If you could sum up Surviving a Shark Attack (On Land) in three words, what would they be?

    This book gives you the help and grace to take the high road! Another great book by Dr. Laura!

    "Another great one by Dr. Laura"

    Dr. Laura fans tend to love her direct, no-nonsense yet caring approach, and this book did not disappoint. I enjoyed her examples, and having her narrate the book was a great touch. I can't imagine listening to anyone else narrate her book.

    "Provided Real Life Experiences/Practical Solutions"
    What made the experience of listening to Surviving a Shark Attack (On Land) the most enjoyable?

    Loved that it was narrated by Dr. Laura and that she provided some of her real life examples of being betrayed. I also really liked that she was realistic that sometimes it is just best to walk away. She did not provide a lot of the psycho babble that a lot of these self help books provide - very useful information and very entertaining. I now need to find her show on Sirius/XM as I am hooked.

    "Useful and Entertaining"

    I've read or listened to most of Dr. Laura's books. "Surviving a Shark Attack" is another addition to her impressive list of helpful, insightful titles. Dr. Laura's voice, humor and personal style make this an especially easy and enjoyable book to listen to. I recommend it highly and will listen to it again and again.

    "the wirst book ive ever read/listened too!"

    firstly the title is misleading. i learnt nothing from this audiobook! there are a 101 examples of how 'revenge" is a good thing... i mean, come on! The author has obviously had a rough time from a certain sort during her life and career, but you cant help think if thats because she really is not likeable. She is masquerading this book on the pretense of helping others when it is infact to promote the fact she isnt bothered about being stabbed in the back... to the people who wronged her in the first place. what annoyed me the most is im male and this is so clearly aimed at women it is disgusting, example after example of a man wronging a female and the female going about her revenge! the point of this book is supposed to be about one overcoming betrayal, not women overcoming betrayal. so women are 100% innocent im assuming is the message here? or is the message that all men are bastards? or is it infact that we should disregard our morals completely? READ SOMETHING BY DALAI LAMA IF YOU REALLY WANT INSIGHT, because this is not it.
