"This is a true-life account that reads like a modern, corporate Cinderella story. Told in a candid and compelling manner by one of America's leading corporate turn-around experts, Jim Adamson, it's the inside scoop on one of America's most notorious episodes. Many of us will enjoy this book, but it provides a most important lesson to consider for Wall Street insiders and Fortune execs."(Ric Bela, Former President and CEO of the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility)
