Readers have to glean the lessons from it. The good thing is that the book does not preach. Nor does it pretend to be a comprehensive treatment of a broad concept. Thanks to Ravi, my wife's cousin from New York, who gifted the book and rightly predicted that I might like reading it. I chose to read this book to gain an understanding of accounting fraud in plain language, that also entertained as I am not an accountant. What I took away from it was a compelling story of corporate greed.

Not a bad book, not great either. Jul 26, Tyler rated it really liked it Shelves: Pretty good for a felon! The story gets crazy a bit before halfway.
The whole situation at MCI is a crap shoot, and the characters, especially Harold Mann, are almost unbelievable. Good lessons in the book. Dec 08, Kevin rated it really liked it. I am pleased to say I know Walt, who has written about my case on his Forbes blog. Unlike some people I know, Walt is very honest and self-critical in his book.
