Interesting and enlightening,
This review is from: Stolen Without A Gun: Confessions from inside history's biggest accounting fraud - the collapse of MCI Worldcom (Hardcover)
Stolen Without a Gun is an insider's look at how, under corporate pressure to show profits and without proper oversight, the temptation to "cook the books" can turn an otherwise hardworking, well-meaning individual to fraud. What's particularly frightening is not only how easily the scheme was executed, but also how close it came to never being discovered. It's also an excellent demonstration of why accounting procedures, as time-consuming and obstructive as they may seem to be at times, are necessary to prevent this sort of thing from happening. I'd recommend this to anyone who works in a high pressure corporate environment.
