'[When to Walk Away's] core message is crucial for readers of all religious backgrounds. Chapters discuss how to understand the difference between difficult people (who can be negotiated with) and toxic people (who will not negotiate in good faith, and actively seek to cause harm), as well as the importance of knowing when to walk away from truly toxic individuals. When to Walk Away is an invaluable resource for personal, church, and public library collections, highly recommended.' - Wisconsin Bookwatch * Wisconsin Bookwatch *
