What a manager. What a brave man, And what a great (true) story. Warning, once you start this book you will have to finish it before you do anything else.

An excellent, well written book, based on a Whistleblower's experiences, telling the facts in a clear and concise way. Certainly well worth reading!

The write ups suggested that it would read like a thriller - it sure did with the extra special twist that it is true. There is also the interesting dimension regarding the East West business culture clash. Good read.

This book has a current flavour for all those interested in the current vogue of whistle blowing and exposing bad practices

Woodford comes across as a person of genuine integrity who put the public interest before his own status in a huge corporation. What is missing from the book is any recognition that this kind of fraud is bound to exist in the dog-eat-dog world of capitalism. Woodford praises Thatcher but it is her philosophy of greed is good, profit before people, that generated the kind of scandal that destroyed Olympus. Nevertheless, Woodford does demonstrate the vital role played by whistle-blowers in exposing corruption and wrong-doing. We need more people brave enough to play this kind of role. Perhaps Jimmy Saville may have been exposed long before his death if someone who knew at the BBC had actually done something about it.
