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.
