“I was so caught in the text that I had to read every word – I would recommend it to Universities as compulsory reading in a number of disciplines and to staff in government and in multilateral organizations. The Board rooms of corporations could also benefit from its content…There is much more that can be said about what inspires the reader but for me it is that hope is better than despair since it can be the source of action, that fighting corruption and preventing it is a global and societal priority project and that its neglect will continue to wreak havoc in the stability of our world and the lives and livelihoods of the world’s people.”
