From the Back Cover:

“Seldom do books of great scholarship take on the pacing of a thriller or the moral force of a statesman’s oratory. Profit Without Honor does both.  In ever-lively anecdotes and startling statistics, the authors expose the dark side of our justice system, a place where well-dressed thieves pull off million dollar heists with frightening regularity and almost always get away with it. [The authors] lay bare for us the environment that gave rise to the Enron and Worldcom scandals. It is a disturbing, fury-igniting story...and one every citizen shareholder should read.  Profit Without Honor is an outstanding book.”

    -Clifton Leaf, Executive Editor, Fortune Magazine

 

“A great book!  Profit Without Honor combines immaculate scholarship, penetrating insight, and a  witty and engaging style of writing.  Readers will find material that will trigger righteous indignation, and insights that will make them nod in agreement and wonder why they hadn’t thought of that.  The authors provide a vast array of information on white-collar offenses that challenges current concentration on street lawbreaking as the most serious crime problem in the United States.”

    -Gilbert Geis, Professor Emeritus, Former President, American Society of Criminology
