Synopsis: We're going to hurt each other ... It's a fact of life, a cost of doing business. On the bright side, we can reduce the odds. Abandon our no harm, no foul approach to criminal liability, initiate meaningful tort reform by retiring the medical malpractice system, rewrite regulations and corporate policies that outlaw human error, reconsider society's perceptions of both wrongdoers and unjustly injured victims, and teach parents to think differently about their children's mistakes. Marx addresses regulators, attorneys, corporate CEOs, public policy makers, the media, and even parents to show that current social perspectives toward our inherent human fallibility have substantially hindered efforts to make the world a safer place to live. While his observations are primarily about American culture, the lessons are universal. Insightful, bold, and told through often humorous tales, Whack-a-Mole pushes readers to rethink accountability at work, at home, at play.

About the Author: David Marx is a systems engineer with a juris doctor in law. Ask him to describe what he does in one sentence and he ll tell you that his job is keep his clients from inadvertently killing their customers. From aviation to healthcare, David has spent his adult life helping others reduce the risks imposed on us all by our shared human fallibility. Through his work as CEO of Outcome Engineering, a Dallas-based risk management firm, David s efforts can be seen in the safety practices of high risk industries around the world. David lives with his wife and their five children in Allen, Texas.
