I have heard lots of people say that the extra income will cause ALL the income to be taxed at a higher rate.



They are wrong.

You are right. It is marginal, and will not pull all your income into the new bracket.
I actually had an AmEx Financial Advisor try to explain to me that all my income would be in the new bracket. Wrong!
