A riveting look at the perpetrators, victims, and whistleblowers behind financial crimes from acclaimed professor and documentarian Kelly Richmond Pope.
Have you ever wondered why Bernie Madoff thought he could brazenly steal his clients' money? Or why investors were so easily duped by Elizabeth Holmes? Or how courageous people like Jeffrey Wigand are willing to become whistleblowers and put their careers on the line?
Fraud is everywhere-from Nigerian "princes," embezzlers, and Ponzi schemers to corporate giants like Enron and Volkswagen. And fraud is costly. Each year, consumers, small businesses, governments, and corporations lose trillions of dollars.
We've become so accustomed to hearing about fraud, we accept it as part of the world we live in today-so much so, that our abilities to identify it and speak about it are limited.
No more. In Fool Me Once, renowned expert Kelly Richmond Pope shows fraud in action, uncovering what makes perps tick, victims so gullible, and whistleblowers so morally righteous, while also encouraging us to look at our own behaviors and motivations in the hopes of protecting ourselves and our companies.
By the time you finish this book, you'll have a better understanding of-and perhaps more compassion for-perpetrators; a renewed connection to victims; and an appreciation for those who blow the whistle.
Filled with fascinating stories and insightful analysis, Fool Me Once will open your eyes and challenge your thinking. It will inspire you to question your own preconceived notions and commonly held beliefs about people while providing an insider's view of a phenomenon that most of us fail to understand until it's too late.
