Exposure: Inside The Olympus Scandalby Michael Woodford
This is a true story that captured the public imaginiation. Michael Woodford was made President and CEO of Olympus, the first westerner at the top of one of Japan's corporate icons. But then his dream job turned into a nightmare, as he uncovered evidence of corruption at the highest levels of the business, facing nothing but hostility from colleagues when he tried to expose it. Fired from the business, he faced months of intense pressure, but chose to persist in helping the men who had ousted him to be brought to account. This fascinating memoir reads like a thriller, the author saying he felt as if he had 'walked into a John Grisham novel.'
