The Bully at Work: What You Can Do to Stop the Hurt and Reclaim Your Dignity on the Job is a self-help book that gives distinct and clear examples of the modus operandi of bullies and how it affects the Target. What was especially insightful were the common reactions and the psychological results for the Target.

The authors give the reader some useful tools to combat the affects through case studies and familiar examples. It is an eye-opening and cathartic read for all who go off each day to the

Bully at Work offers some amazing insight into the world of workplace bullying. Even though it isn't totally clear how many people face bullies on the job, some surveys show 37% of Americans have been bullied at work and almost 50% of employees are aware of it. Inexplicably despite this prevalence of workplace bullying, the bully themselves rarely face justice for their actions. Rather, 77% of their targets either are fired, transferred, or quit their jobs. That means less than one in four bulli ...more

This is an essential for individuals who are in the throughs of workplace bullying, interested individuals and workplace professionals. The Bully at Work offers a straightforward approach to understanding workplace bullying and its implications. This book should be a staple in all workplace libraries.

Very comprehensive treatment of the problem of workplace bullying in the U.S. Very helpful to those who have been or may be currently being bullied on the job.

After years of being bullied (I almost want to say tormented on a daily basis) I wanted to read this book and see if it would or could help me. While most of book is on their website it had some good exercises and questions to ask yourself as you go along. It was dry in places and statistics throughout which didn't help much, but I will say this book made me feel less alone in my ordeal. My only complaint was I thought they should have more real life stories and their outcomes including in the b ...more

This book helped me understand how and why I had been plowed under at my last job. The chapter on boundaries was especially helpful. I now realize how I had set myself up for eventual disaster by volunteering to do my boss's projects. I was proud that I could handle them and got a paper award and a bonus that amounted to $18.75 after taxes. My boss met one of his employment goals for the year and got a raise on his already bloated salary. Because I was willing, it just kept happening. When I fin ...more

The Namies are leaders in the work to address and stop workplace bullying in the US. This is previously read (at least twice) another in a series on this topic that I'm skimming to gain specific documentation. However the copy I have is the first edition, not the second one pictured here.

Non-fiction. Interesting if you have ever had to deal with these people. They throw everyone and everything off. Bring a large element of stress into the environment but usually just covert enough to be hard to make issue of.
Mary
As I am dealing with bullies at a work place. I found it really helpful to push the bullies out in front of everyone of their horrible actions.

I found this very informative.
Amy
Very informative and realistic. But unfortunately, the reality is that people who are being bullied in the workplace don't have a lot of hope for true justice.
Sharon
This book really puts a lot of things in perspective.
