"Strengths include 1. Quality of writing The book is extremely well written. Payne has a gift for presenting challenging material in an organized and accessible manner. 2. Variety/Depth of topics The book provides an unexpectedly wide look at the variety of White Collar Crimes. It also includes a look at the judicial system and corrections, areas which are typically not directly addressed. 3. Visuals/tables The photos/tables used throughout the text are of excellent quality and do a wonder job of supporting/illustrating issues from the narrative."--Christopher Salvatore
"This is a good textbook for undergraduate students as it explains clearly and simply the concepts and types of WCC, provides good examples, and does not overwhelm the student with unnecessary information in most areas."
