"Dishonest Dollars is a provocative, useful, and readable book."-D. Quinn Mills, Albert J. Weatherhead, Jr., Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School "I have spent more than thirty-six years evaluating and treating offenders-men and women from nearly all walks of life who have committed almost every kind of crime imaginable. I found this book to be insightful, thought provoking, and full of information that was new to me. This practical book will have wide appeal. It addresses all aspects of the problem, from the mental makeup of the criminal to the attitudes of the public toward white-collar offenders. This comprehensive and compelling book will appeal to the general public as well as professionals in law enforcement, corrections, and mental health. One would also anticipate that officers and board members of both large and small businesses would read Dishonest Dollars and encourage their employees to do the same."-Dr. Stanton E. Samenow, author of Inside the Criminal Mind "Drawing skillfully on several disciplines, the author presents a complete up-to-date analysis of factors that contribute to white-collar crime and its costs to individuals, organizations, and society at large. In the wake of the most recent corporate scandals, this book will prove to be an invaluable resource in several areas, including business ethics, business and society, organizational behavior, corporate governance, public administration, sociology, and criminology. Given the increasingly high profile of white-collar crimes, this book is a must-read for all who want to understand and prevent the social harms inflicted by this type of behavior. In particular, all business degree candidates should be required to read this book prior to graduation, given the ethical dilemmas they will face in the workplace. It is a book whose time has come."-Diane Swanson, The von Waaden Business Administration Professor and Founding Chair, Business Ethics Education Initiative, Kansas State University
