Publisher's Summary

You can rise above. You do have options. Do you work in a toxic environment or have a toxic boss? You're not alone! Today, unattainable expectations, emotional harassment, and demands to do more with less often leave employees overworked, underpaid, insecure, and out of options. Must you continue to put up with poisonous people in a morale-crushing environment?
In Rising Above a Toxic Workplace, you'll learn how to endure, cope, or quit if necessary. Drawing from authentic - sometimes horrific - real-life stories, authors Gary Chapman, Paul White, and Harold Myra blend their expertise to give you practical guidance, empowering insight, and realistic hope. You'll discover: how workplaces can become unhealthy and how to avoid getting wounded; what drives toxic leaders and why they are so damaging to those around them; essential tips for maintaining your sanity while dealing with dysfunctional colleagues; and counsel on how to decide when to leave - for your own mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

Not much help at all..

While the narration is not too bad I did not find the content very useful at all. More of a collection of other people's stories than a practical reference. All you really get from listening is that if your job is toxic or stressful, then leave before it is too late. Some may find it helpful. I, unfortunately, did not.

Some pratical work-life advice

It does start out a bit slow, focusing mainly on anecdotes from various people's experiences. However, it does evolving into examining the choices these people made and their outcomes and giving some practical advice on the topic of difficult bosses and toxic workplaces. Most of the advice and analysis comes in the last 1.5 hours, and includes things to look out for to identify a toxic boss/workplace.
