This book is written from an attorney's point-of-view and is more diagnostic in nature ... the author describes situations but does not provide realistic suggestions for how to deal with bullying on-the-job other than through legal actions or formal channels. It appears to be written from the perspective of someone who has not actually had the experiences the author describes or the experiences of working in a company and actually having dealt successfully with bullies.
Surface level data and facts are offered along with obvious examples, eg Leona Helmsley, but the book lacks practical and realistic ways to handle the day-to-day bully, especially if you want to keep your job.

This book has practical advice based on experiences of the author. She is a lawyer and a judge yet delivers the information easily.
It's been too long that these behaviors have been tolerated in the workplace!!!
