KATHY'S BOOK IS NOW AVAILABLE A stunning story inspired by real events.
The book is not yet officially launched but the early reviews are encouraging. From the reviews on Amazon: A compelling read. Once I began to read this account of workplace bullying and its effect on a victim, I couldn't put it down. Should be required reading for those in HR and management positions.
Compelling and deeply moving. This is a sharp, acutely observed account of 18 crisis-wrecked months in the life of a whistleblower. The whole tale is told in the historic present creating an immediacy and vitality which is sustained to the very last page. The author is someone in touch with her emotions in a way that many of us are not. And that is one of the great strengths of this book. Unselfconscious repetition (rumination, intrusive thoughts, self-doubt) which in another place would be tedious, here serve only to escalate the mental agony and make it more credible, more accessible. I wholeheartedly recommend The Secret of Silencing a Whistleblower. I found it compelling and deeply moving. Please read it.
Heartbreakingly familiar. To anyone who has ever been bullied or mobbed at work please read this book
