From Library Journal
Devine and Maassarani present a handy guide (written in cooperation with the Government Accountability Project, for which Devine is legal director and Maassarani former litigator) full of practical considerations and suggestions as well as examples of whistle-blowers’ experiences. The admirably pragmatic chapters cover such topics as how to decide whether the wrongdoing witnessed is worth reporting, the tactics used by corporations and others to intimidate and marginalize whistle-blowers, how to create appropriate support networks, and the best ways to back up one’s whistle-blowing (and to whom one should blow the whistle). The book concludes with a meaty “Toolkit” that offers tips on filing an official Sarbanes-Oxley complaint, filing Freedom of Information Act requests, and using the appropriate federal statutes. VERDICT This is an important (and cost-effective) book for libraries to own; it well covers a subject that, understandably, potential whistle-blowers may not want to look up on the Internet, particularly on their work computers. Managers might also do well to familiarize themselves with this book, as the authors suggest that most whistle-blowers would prefer to work through official and company channels to resolve their issues (for both their peace of mind and the good of the organization). —Sarah Statz Cords

Australian readers should note that there is even less protection for Antipodean whistleblowers. In the United States there is some protection through the False Claims Act and the Dodd-Frank Act.
I wish I had read this book before exposing the scandal at Westmead Hospital (see the Julie Robotham article in the Sydney Morning Herald 23 May 2011). I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone thinking of whistleblowing.

This book is especially necessary at a time when whistleblower law has become complex and whistlelowers have a wide range of options that did not exist just a few years ago. Due in part to GAP's remarkable work, Congress and state legislatures have recently enacted or strengthened a wide variety of whistleblower protection laws, and courts have expanded the common law tort of wrongful discharge in violation of public policy. The Corporate Whistleblower's Survival Guide explains the remedies available to whistleblowers in a concise and clear manner.
I commend the authors and GAP for their hard work in drafting this terrific guide for whistleblowers.
