5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, fast paced, informative and finally the TRUTH!, 3 Feb 2014

This review is from: Exposure: From President to Whistleblower at Olympus (Paperback)
Wow! What a gripping and fast read! I was gripped from the first page until the last and had so many feelings towards this story. Since the start of the recession we have seen CEO after CEO frogmarched from various boardrooms across the world for their corruption, greed and inadequate management of the companies in which they represent and about time too. I also work in the corporate sector and whilst I am not immune to what really goes on in these types of companies this story is truly shocking beyond words and I bet this sort of thing is rife in almost most corporates. The only difference here is that they don't have a brave CEO to expose it!

I am also used to supporting people at this level and believe me the CEO position can be one of extreme loneliness in situations such as these and it would be very hard to know who to trust. These men may be parachuted into these positions but you can very quickly lose your new power and wealth and most of the time for wrongdoing which cannot be said for Michael Woodford. Sacked for doing the right thing... beggars belief quite honestly.

Michael Woodford is the most sincere and honest CEO we have in Great Britain and what a wasted talent in all honesty. Just wish he would have been a CEO of a British company as we could certainly have done with people like him leading our companies back here in Britain especially through some very difficult years.

I wish Michael and his family every slice of happiness they get. They certainly deserve it after everything they have been to and the threat to their family life.

You would think that lessons would be learnt from this and the stories that came through during the recession but sadly I think we are due to see some more Olympus's of this world in the next decade and I think corporate greed and corruption will only increase but let's hope there are some brave soles like Michael to expose us to the truth!
