I believe it is an honest account of what went on in Mark Whitacre's life with no glossing over of his mistakes. Thank God for his wife, Ginger, who helped him see what his duty was and helped him to carry it through. I believe God has used Mark and Ginger and will continue to use them to give others the courage to see and to do his will for their lives.
Mark held multiple doctorates as well as several graduate degrees. He quickly advanced to one of the highest business positions attainable in our society. Yet, throughout that time and no matter how much he made, he was never satisfied. The book is a great read for those who believe in the healing and restorative power of the Lord. I read this book for my Business Ethics class and it was pretty good. Sometimes the system is broken.
Like the fact it is first hand account. Very well written and was to follow and understand. See all 5 reviews.

Let me start by saying that this is not the best written book. That being said, I found it very enjoyable and in my opinion better than the movie about Mark.
Mark and his wonderful wife Ginger should inspire others to hang in there during tough times. It is mind blowing that he spent so much time in prison for his crimes and a fascinating story with his return to the corporate world. His outlook on life throughout the process is nothing less than inspiring. The religious aspects are not overplayed so if you are not into that, you can just skim over those parts. Mark deserves a Presidential pardon and we'll see if President Obama comes through for him Have you seen some of the others that have received pardons?
How many of them made the sacrifices that Mark made?
He has already paid his dues for the fraud he committed. One person found this helpful. The Whitacre story is both compelling and tragic. Being TRUE, it provides some valuable insights into big business and major legal fines. The story repeats itself multiple times and is hard to read and follow. Some topics are described in minute detail while others are only glossed over. What's missing most is any information about ADM and the fines imposed from his years wearing a wire for the FBI- and whistle blowing on price fixing.
Yes we learn about Mark, and his legal injustices, and eventual conversion to Christ Had a pleasure of getting to know Mark personally - just an amazing open hearted individual with a great heart, story and amazing wife. After reading the original book by Eisenwald about Mark Whitacre, I was anxious to see the movie, which I enjoyed tremendously.
OF course Matt Damon in the title role was a perfect choice. I recommend everyone read this book after seeing the movie, The Informant. The film "The Informant" failed to tell the entire story, and tried to make fun of the largest white collar crime in history. Mark is truly a hero, so buy the book. Definitely Mark and Ginger's life story is worrh reading about. It will inspire, encourage, and challenge you in your own life. This was a great book that tells Marks remarkable story much better than the movie did.
It did not go into as much depth as much as I would have liked it to, but still a good read. I would not recommend this book to a friend. See all 11 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.
