Bully Proof: 2013 

When the CNN Profiles guest booking producers recommended we interview Emily Bazelon about her new book on bullying I was reluctant.

Sure, Bazelon is a household name to those of us who read Slate – which is not a household name.

And she has great credentials, not limited to her law degree from Yale.

But I have bully fatigue. There has been so much news coverage of the issue these past few years.

Nevertheless, I read Bazelon's "Sticks and Stones" and it changed my perspective on bullying, whether it's encountered  in person or online.
