Surviving a Shark Attack (On Land): Overcoming Betrayal and Dealing with Revenge
Don’ get mad. Get even. With her trademark no-nonsense voice and building on the principles developed during her long career as a licensed therapist, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Laura Schlessinger shows listeners how to survive enemies–traitors, backstabbers, and saboteurs–at work and at home. She 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.
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. The book 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.

Personal Reflections and Mediations
Dr. Bernie Siegel’s message is clear: “If you talk to your body, it will listen.” And millions of people have gained strength and support from his healing imagery workshops and bestselling books and tapes. At the beginning of the recording, Dr. Siegel offers advice on how to achieve the peace of mind that is itself a powerful healing tool. He stresses the importance of an inner peace that comes from surrounding ourselves with the things that make us feel good—comforting and soothing images, sounds, smells, and tactile sensations.
