Resumen del libro

Reseña: Michael Woodford was a company man. He'd risen through the ranks of giant Japanese firm Olympus to become CEO. But just weeks into the job in Tokyo he came across allegations of enormous fraud. Yet his every attempt at investigation was blocked. Losing his job, facing a cover up and possible threats to his life, Woodford fled the country. Then he did something Olympus didn't expect. He fought back. Risking everything, Woodford went on the offensive. He exposed the crimes at the company's heart, brought down those who tried to silence him - and became a hero. 'Woodford relates, at Grisham-like pace, how he stumbled upon a $1.7bn fraud that he, unlike his fellow board members, refused to hide. He is one of the few foreign businessmen to have penetrated deep inside a Japanese corporation and to report back unflinchingly.' Financial Times 'Woodford triumphs with a pacey narrative [and] a storyteller's eye for detail. A fine book by a fine man who did the right thing.' The Times 'When Woodford turned whistleblower, he set off a tumult unlike anything that the cosseted world of Japanese business had seen.' The New York Times 'Remarkable. Vivid, angry and straight from the heart.' Mail on Sunday
