"Aaron Murphy has written a marvelous book on the increasingly complex and difficult challenges posed by the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) . . . What I love most about Aaron′s book, however, is its emphasis on culture, leadership, and process in addressing FCPA risk . . . It will be helpful to specialists, and even more so to business leaders and managers, in doing what the overwhelming majority of those leaders and managers strive to do lead with integrity."
Brackett Denniston, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, General Electric Company
