Hardback : 29 Nov 2012
When Michael Woodford was made President and CEO of Olympus, he was the first westerner ever to climb the ranks of one of Japan's corporate giants, and only the fourth non-Japanese person to run a Japanese corporation.
Within months he become the first company president to blow the whilstle on his own firm, having uncovered, investigated and publicly exposed a $1.7 billion accounting fraud. He was dramatically fired, fled Japan in fear of his life and - working with the Financial Times and the Serious Fraud Office - instigated an investigation which continues to rock Japan to its core.
Exposure is the edge-of-your-seat story of how Michael Woodford chose the truth over an $8 million dollar salary and exposed the dark heart of the company he had dedicated his life to championing.
