Format: Hardcover
The Technical Working Group (TWG) on Education in Fraud and Forensic Accounting's report notes that "As a result of recent, highly publicized financial scandals; reported increases in occupational fraud; and heightened concerns over money laundering to support terrorism and racketeering, legislative mandates and public expectations have heightened the necessity to further define the auditor's and accountant's responsibility for detecting fraud within organizations. Successful fraud or forensic accounting analyses and findings reported by practicing professionals may be the difference between whether perpetrators avoid detection of their illegal activities or they are brought to justice." Forensic accounting has come of age.
The authors have written an excellent text. The topics include everything in the model curriculum developed by the TWG where all three authors were Planning Panel Members.
At the start students are made aware of the foundations of fraud, fraud examination, and forensic investigations. This section also talks about the diverse career paths that are available to forensic accountants, much like auditing books talk about the structure of the profession. The writing style realizes that all this would be new to accounting students. Up to now students would have been taught rules and procedures and the fact that fraud could exist in the organization or in the audit client was largely ignored. The second section reviews criminology, ethics, and the legal and regulatory environment of external auditing. The section on who commits fraud and complex frauds and financial crimes is sure to make students realize that all is not rosy and honest out in the real world.

The book is ok. It's a bit dry and some parts it looks like that they just try to summarize things instead of trying to teach fundamental thinking.

Examples are not so useful. I wish they used more realistic and relevant examples. It's an ok book for a reference but not a good buy. All libraries

should have it but not sure if the students should purchase it.

Although I found the book informative, the text is not organized well and is redundant. I wouldn't have bought it unless the course required it.
