As a sequel to the New York Times bestseller Please Stop Laughing at Me..., the 2007 release of Jodee Blanco’s Please Stop Laughing at Us... received deserved attention for demanding an end to school bullying once and for all, and for supplying parents, educators, and targeted students with the tools and skills needed to do so.

In this 2011 revised edition, Please Stop Laughing at Us...One Woman’s Inspirational Story Continues includes the same powerful message that Blanco is respected and known for, with new material, including strategy guides for parents and educators, new material, including a Q&A for parents and educators, updated information on university bullying in light of recent news events, and a touching epilogue.

Please Stop Laughing at Us...is the story of America’s rejected and bullied students from the perspective of the one person with unprecedented access to the truth about what’s going on in our schools. Blanco exposes both the strengths and vulnerabilities of a nation too clouded by rhetoric and self-defense to understand what really needs to be done.
