Some wondered at the appointment - how could a gaijin who didn't even speak Japanese understand how to run a Japanese company? But within months Woodford had gained the confidence of most of his colleagues and shareholders. Unfortunately, soon after, his dream job turned into a nightmare. The trouble began when Woodford learned about a series of bizarre mergers and acquisitions deals totaling $1.7 billion - a scandal that threatened to bring down the entire company if exposed. He turned to his fellow executives - including the chairman who had promoted him, Tsuyoshi Kikukawa - for answers. But instead of being heralded as a hero for trying to save the company, Woodford was met with vague responses and hostility - a clear sign of a cover up. Undeterred, he demanded to be made CEO so he could have more leverage with his board and continue to search for the truth. Then, just weeks after being granted the top title, he was fired in a boardroom coup that shocked Japan and the business world at large. Worried his former bosses might try to silence him, Woodford immediately fled the country in fear of his life and went straight to the press-making him the first CEO of a global multinational to blow the whistle on his own company. The result is a deeply personal memoir that reads like a thriller narrative. As Woodford puts it, "I thought I was going to run a health-care and consumer electronics company, but found I had walked into a John Grisham novel.", Whistle blowing, Woodford, Michael,1960-, Woodford, Michael., [United States]:Gildan Audio ,2013., a-ja---, computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/gil_9781469025247_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, pcc, spoken wordspw, xii, 258 p. :ill. ;24 cm.
