This book clearly illuminates how toxic people (especially people in authority) in the workplace can create entrenched systems and beliefs that may last for years, even after the toxic employee's removal. Such results include stifled creativity, afraid of voicing true opinions in the company's best interest, mistrust of co-workers, social/emotional scars for co-workers and their families, costs of lost productivity due to co-worker's focus on protection and damage control, cost of re-training workers who finally leave, and lack of growth in the company.
