Format: Paperback
As someone who has been singled out by a supervisor abusing her authority, I've been seeking resources to help me deal with my situation until I can find other employment.

I loved the premise of this book and the title is a real hook.

Unfortunately the book is poorly written and perhaps never edited. I found simple word usage and spelling errors. I was willing to overlook the first few in order to glean some useful information. Simple errors are a distraction enough, but the author's use of quotation marks, bold and italics was superfluous and arbitrary.

So even if the reader can manage to tolerate these distractions, one quickly realizes that the content is lacking. It reads as if the author is making up scenarios to produce examples of oppressiveness in the workplace. They don't feel real. (I've been through enough REAL work situations to fill a book, so I KNOW what sounds real.)

The author is very repetitive, describing workplace officials as "oppressive and incompetent" over and over and over and over and over again.

The book had a slapped-together structure and when I saw the publisher was iUniverse, my heart sank. iUniverse is a vanity/self-publishing company, which explains why this effort was so sloppy and poorly edited.

Anyone can publish a book through iUniverse if they have the funds. But that doesn't mean everyone SHOULD do so.

This author nails it in the first chapter, Dynamics of Troubled Organizations: "Productive and loyal employees do not leave because of the type or amount of work they must complete ... It is not the work. It is the postures of ineffective and abusive administrators, managers, and supervisors that cause them to leave." Yep. The story of my life.

This is an excellent book on how to survive in troubled organizations. I strongly recommend it to anyone who must endure oppression and incompetence in the workplace!
