5.0 out of 5 stars Check it out - this sets the benchmark amongst similar titles, 1 May 2009
Prentice Hall and the FT seek to set the gold standard and this helpful and accessible volume succeeds. It is a useful aide memoire for the skilled practitioner and a supportive resource for the newcomer that gives the basics and then allows deeper engagement too. It should be possible to tell if this is for you with a quick skim - and I suspect for many it will be in the basket and adding value to your business life very quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars It names the elephants in the room, 1 May 2009
What a delight this book is. It names the issues square on and then offers insights and actions to create a viable and effective response(s). The sub-title - How to maintain your integrity and further your career - is sadly an often present dilemma in a world where whistle blowing and fighting every battle are not always the effective option. I particularly liked that the practical actions were set in the context of first acknowledging the human and personal distress caused by the dilemma. An engaging read about something real.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK with some Very Good aspects, 1 May 2009
This review is from: Corporate Governance (Paperback)
This book sits uncomfortably between the 'everything you need to know quickly' guides and the specialist regulatory and practice guides. It is full of excellent guidance and example, yet not fully cohesive or necessarily easy to find the key issue that you seek. At its best, this volume represents 'the professor in discussion with advanced students who are widely reading elsewhere too' - and valuable for that. I am glad to have read it. It provoked thought and some discussion with colleagues - but I found it ultimately not as useful as the blurb might indicate, nor as useful as I had hoped as a resource to have to hand for reference.
