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.

Frankly my dear, I dont give a damn!!

This is got to be the best book I have ever read. coming to the conclusion that I shouldn't and I'm Justified in not giving a damn has been the most freeing experience in my world. I am a people pleaser by Nature and want everyone to like me and it ended up and several ridiculous an unhealthy quagmires. I feel as though I have been equipped to live my life and be happy and and and to release those who seek discord. Realizing that sometimes some people just want to see others unhappy because they are hurting was absolutely Paramount. I took her suggestions a step further and began praying for those aggressive /irrational/ demanding people. Did I mention that this is the best book ever? not only have I gained Insight but I have gained peace and knowing that Revenge isn't always necessary. The simple Act of forgiveness Dr Laura conveyed was challenging but as she Illustrated I would benefit more than the other party. Absolutely the best book I've ever read. I am stupid blessed to have been given this book by my bestie.

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.

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.
