Reviews
"...a personal handbook to help give power back to people in toxic work environments...Anderson gets across the multifaceted pain that a target of abuse must work through, and she also effectively gives potential allies a guide for what they can do if they ever witness toxic behavior themselves. An approachable and layered memoir and manual to help fight workplace harassment."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"As a former prosecutor of numerous sexually violent predators, I've seen too many times the terrible harm brought upon targets by abusers. Kirsten here does a wonderful job of describing the impact of sexual harassment upon her, her family, and her career. Read it, and let it inspire you to help change our culture for the better."--Iowa State Auditor Rob Sand, Author of The Winning Ticket: Uncovering America's Biggest Lottery Scam
"While Kirsten D. Anderson's More Than Words: Turn #MeToo Into #ISaidSomething is a deeply personal account and reckoning of her experiences with workplace sexual harassment and her long fight to stand up against it, it's also a smart call to action for our larger culture and society. She shines a light on the parts we all play in this pervasive problem, and highlights what we can do to combat it. By sharing her own painful story, Anderson gives us a roadmap to get to a better, safer, and more equitable place."--Kali White VanBaale, author of The Monsters We Make
"Poignant, Raw, and Powerful... More Than Words is a courageous account of surviving harassment in the workplace. The author unveils what those on the outside can't see and extends an invitation for empathy, solidarity, and transformation. Kirsten liberates her experience by exposing the toxic work culture generations of women have silently endured and still undergo today. Her vulnerability is palpable on every page. This story brilliantly guides us through self-reflection, honesty, valor, and empowerment. A must-read to help men and women to break the cycle and change the narrative."--Blaise Hunter, Award-Winning Author of Heroine: Embrace Your Flaws and Own Your Awesome Human Rights Consultant
"More Than Words brings us one step closer to the truth about sexual abuse. It's everywhere--including the workplace. Kirsten Anderson also makes it clear that it shouldn't exist anywhere. Sexual harassment effects the whole family, not just the target, Kirsten shows us. Her story is about the right to quality of life. People should feel safe while earning a living. When they don't, all their environments are affected no matter how strong they try to be. This book raises sensitivity to targets of workplace sexual harassment by including guiding questions. Kirsten makes the reader understand that everyone has a role to play to stop workplace harassment."--Dr. Rosenna Bakari, Empowerment expert, Speaker, and Author of best-selling book The Healing Journey: Relationships and Wellness Guide
"Any who would identify and overcome sexual harassment in the workplace needs this story...Ultimately, More Than Words lives up to its name by offering a series of actions readers can apply to their own lives, from initial understanding and adjusting reactions along the way to the legal paths Anderson chose. While More Than Words is highly recommended for business, psychology, and social and women's issues library collections, it ideally should play a starring role in not just book club discussions, but groups where victims of bullying and harassment have the chance to voice their experiences--and then (thanks to this book's blueprints and examples) do something about them."-- "Midwest Book Review"
