Murphy, Partner, Latham & Watkins LLP "Business leaders would be wise to follow the recommendations in this book. Fraud prevention is more than just creating a set of policies.

This book is an essential tool in creating an anti-fraud environment in any company." --James D. Ratley, CFE, President & CEO, Association of Certified Fraud Examiners "Biegelman and Bartow's Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control is an essential guide for all who have an interest in eradicating corporate or institutional fraud.

Martin Biegelman and Joel Bartow have accomplished an incredible achievement: they have flawlessly bridged the chasm between the theoretical/academic and practical/tangible. This is a volume that should not be on the bookshelf of every manager interested in compliance and fraud prevention (which should be every manager); it should be dog-eared and open on the desktop of every such manager! Kudos to Messrs. Biegelman and Bartow!" --William J. Kresse, M.S., J.D., CPA, CFF, CFE; Associate Professor, Graham School of Management; Director, Center for the Study of Fraud and Corruption, Saint Xavier University, Chicago "Biegelman and Bartow have again provided an invaluable resource for leaders in the corporate world who have responsibility for fraud, integrity, and compliance. They send a clear message that addressing fraud is a two part process- establishing robust controls and detection measures; and creating a culture of compliance and integrity. This work provides a detailed tour through the world of fraud controls while keeping the importance of culture at the forefront." --Ronald C. Petersen, Executive Director, Global Security, Ally Financial "From the perspective of an ethics and compliance practitioner, Martin Biegelman's and Joel Bartow's new offering is a Thanksgiving feast. Too often, companies and organizations get caught up in the moment, and don't stand back to examine the cultural, organizational and historic reasons that fraud exists. Biegelman and Bartow plow that road, and use their insights to offer invaluable tips in the design of effective anti-fraud programs." --James D. Berg, Vice President, Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer, Apollo Group Inc.

This book is a great asset for those engaged in the seemingly endless struggle to control fraud. A "must read" for the industry. --Raymond L. Philo, MPA, Executive Director, Economic Crime Institute, Utica College "As if Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control wasn't a powerful enough tool for fraud fighters, now Biegelman and Bartow have added fresh insight and advice to the second edition. With compelling updates on costly internal and external fraud and corruption, together with easy-to-read descriptions of latest fraud-fighting technologies, this is a must-read for fraud examiners, auditors, attorneys and others--whether they've read the first edition or not. --Peter Goldmann, President, White-Collar Crime 101 LLC/FraudAware "Fraud borders on the ubiquitous in contemporary corporate culture. This book provides a rich and comprehensive guide to crafting a state of the art fraud deterrence program. While the book is sure to better equip corporate executives and directors in their fight against fraud, I intend to draw heavily upon its content in educating accounting students who represent the CEO's and CFO's of the future." --Ingrid E. Fisher, PhD, CPA, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Accounting and Law, The University at Albany-SUNY "The book's exploration of fraud theories ranging from "rotten apple" to the "potato chip" (can't eat just one!), provides useful examination of the psychology of corporate fraud that explains its recurring nature and offers clues to creating a fraud resistant culture." --Zachary W. Carter, Partner and head of the Trial Group, Dorsey & Whitney LLP and former United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York
