Answered all the questions I had, and some I hadn’t thought to ask

When you’re in a situation for a long time with someone above you causing issues for you, you start to lose perspective on what should be ok and what shouldn’t. Book is very down to earth, offers a lot of good advice and legal information, and lays out the realities of taking action too, but it was unbelievably helpful to listen to this book. It gives me a starting off point to figure out what to do about it, and how to do it. Thank you, seriously.

First type of read

This was my first type of read towards this topic I would have to say that it was pretty logical and its description of a short-term maybe even midterm approach to counter a bullying boss, but very very logical in my opinion. Would recommend it

15% adverts

The first 10 minutes of this just 90 minute audio book was just advertising the authors own services and other books, luckily I didnt spend any real money on this as I had a coupon.

This book also only really applies to the USA, it probably would get you into a lot of trouble if you tried some of this stuff in the UK

Very useful advice

On point advice. I would like to hear more stories of workplace bullying amongst nurses and situations in healthcare settings specifically.
