When Michael Woodford was made president of Olympus, he became the first Westerner ever to climb to the top of one of Japan's corporate giants. Unfortunately, soon a fter, his dream job turned into a nightmare. 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.
Just weeks later, he was fired in a boardroom coup that shocked Japan and the business world. Woodford fled the country in fear for 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.
Now Woodford recounts his almost unbelievable true story and paints a devastating portrait of corporate Japan.
"His story is filled with mystery, suspense, and betrayal." --"Management Today"
"A gripping chronicle." --"Kirkus Reviews"

Reviews

"A gripping chronicle by a corporate whistle-blower who achieved a stunning victory."--Kirkus Reviews "Exposure treats readers to a fascinating inside look at bare-knuckled corporate governance...[it] should be compulsory reading for company directors and MBA students."--The Economist "Woodford has written a brilliantly gripping book, with a great hero at its heart. His story is all the more frightening for being true."--Rosamund Urwin, The Evening Standard (UK) "Michael Woodford took a considerable risk in exposing wrongdoing. He was a study of boldness in action."--Lionel Barber, editor, Financial Times "Woodford's reaction to the corporate malfeasance and corruption he discov-ered once he reached the top is even more noteworthy, though perhaps not surprising. Throughout his life he had demonstrated a willingness to speak out against what he perceived as treachery, even when it could result in financial harm or personal danger."--Bloomberg BusinessWeek "Michael Woodford could have spent years turning a blind eye to the shady dealings of corporate executives at Olympus. Instead . . . he dove headfirst into allegations of corporate misconduct."--Time, in naming him a 2011 Person Who Mattered "Michael Woodford is a man who did not stand by and do nothing. He stood his ground and he spoke the truth. It's people like him who keep our soci-ety from falling into total darkness. Japan could use more people like him."--Jake Adelstein, author of Tokyo Vice, from the Afterword "He's the most celebrated international whistleblower of recent times. His story is filled with mystery, suspense, and betrayal."--Management Today "Michael Woodford lost his job for his integrity."--The Economist A gripping chronicle by a corporate whistle-blower who achieved a stunning victory.
