If you are in a profession where bullying takes place....professions with strong managerial oversight....social workers, teachers, nurses...or in helping professions...ministers...and have been a victim of bullying; get this book. Your health is more important than an unqualified and projecting bully who's inadequecies cause her (or him) to lash out at your confidence and your self worth; and who use their position of authority to make themselves feel better, lording over you your ability to provide a living....

this is for you.

Honest, thought provoking, compassionate reading. why are you a victim of bullying? Two basic reasons: you are good at your job, and you are well liked. Two things the inadequate supervisor/manager cannot bear, because it exposes them to others, for who they really are. How do they bully? Incessant and unnecessary (and useless) criticism. On and on until you are torn down. The result: longer term productivity decline, absenteeism, poor morale, and lots and lots of turnover. No, it is not that you can't handle the job: it is the bully who destroys the morale. When a victim leaves, the bully is sure to attempt to inspire others and say, "that person couldn't handle the job", but let wisdom be justified of her children....wait and watch. As each person leaves, they will be torn down, as will you when you decide that you have had enough. Don't wait until your stress levels impact your health...get this volume now.

This book has been a true lifesaver for many people targeted by workplace bullying/harassment. Mr Field's insight provides understanding and validation for the targets, analysis and exposure of bullies' underhand tactics and ploys, and valuable advice for those having to defend their safety, sanity and dignity from workplace bullies, as well as for those in a position to assist them.

Tim Field's book is a standard reference volume that we use and highly recommend in our ministry with individuals who find themselves trapped and psychologically abused in toxic, dysfunctional systems (workplaces, volunteer organizations, families, etc.).
Dr. Field has done a remarkable service to society in producing this book. We are fully grateful.

I read this completely eye-opening book with amazment. First of all, it really defined a silent epidemic most workplaces are having to deal with. Secondly, it really outlined definitions, places to turn, and what to expect from abusive workplaces. I would highly recommend this not only to those in an abusive workplace, but for anyone trying to help someone who's been through this ugly phenomenon.

I have been following Tim Field's work closely since 1998 - visiting his ever-evolving Web site weekly. I read "Bully in Sight" from cover to cover twice. It provided me with invaluable and indispensable help in coping with stalkers and bullies. I have dedicated the last 5 years to the study of the Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Most narcissists are bullies. Few have captured the essence of bullying and stalking as Tim has. His work has given hope to many - the trapped and desperate victims of bullying, harassment and stalking. His book and Web site should be the first stop on the road to recovery and healing.

So, you just found out you have been made the Target. Now what? Where do you turn? Education about bullying is ONE MAIN element to jump start the pathway to recovery and beyond, Bully in Sight is THE place to start. While written by a British citizen, Tim Field, published in Great Britain, bullying holds no border boundaries and is present around the world. You are not alone. Empower yourself to understand what is being done to you. Have you even thought this: I always thought the purpose of going to work was to do work, not to spend one's entire time fighting off the unwelcome attentions of more senior managers. All my attempts to give excellent service to customers and contribute to the profitability to the company were thwarted by the immature behavior and non-existent interpersonal skills of my abusive managers." (page 1 and 2, Bully in Sight, Tim Field, printed in 1996.)

Senior manager not your bully, insert neighbor, family member, co-worker. Throughout the book, Field mentions terms familiar to the British, but United States has equivalent terms and conditions in most cases. The book is designed to be read cover to cover, but I did not find the British terminology to be difficult and could relate to terminology congruent to the United States.

Mr Field's book tells all, he holds nothing back about the truth. For Targets, if you need to read only one book about your situation to understand, and to combat workplace bullying, this book is for you. Do you need a good nights sleep? This book won't put you to sleep, but after reading it, a good nights sleep is one thing you will achieve. Did you know that being bullied causes health issues? Field discusses that also, and what to do. You already know you're the Target, that was the first major leap.
