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

“I had walked into a John Grisham novel.” —Michael Woodford
