About fifteen years ago, Joe Wells (founder of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners) commented about how few books there were on white-collar crime. He said, "Not only can we get all of the white-collar crime books in the library (one small room), we can get a 10-year supply of National Geographic in here, too." Since that time there has been plethora of fraud- and white-collar crime-related books. Accountants have written books offering useful perspectives on managing the risk of fraud and misconduct. Sociologists and criminologists were among the first to write about white-collar crime. Lawyers also have useful perspectives, and law enforcement personnel, including former IRS agents, have contributed to our knowledge as well. Each of these books has made valuable contributions toward our understanding and has offered practical advice on managing fraud-related risks.Read more ›
As useful as this book will be for business students, the readers who will reap the greatest immediate benefit from this book are business owners and managers who believe that their business is too small or too provincial to be concerned with "big company" issues like money laundering, government procurement fraud, and management of electronically-stored information. Many of these readers will find this book to be a real eye opener as they learn that their businesses are exposed to risks of which they were completely unaware.
The book is overall dry and the content can be better learned through power point slides rather than reading the book. It's an Ok reference.
