Fascinating insight into corp. governance and big churches

I well remember when PtL was brought to shame, so if you ever wanted to know the story behind that this is a great book. More importantly, it's a fascinating insight into failures of corporate governance and the consequent service failures and collapse of public trust. With chapters entitled "Where were the non-executives?" and "Where were the auditors?", it provides neat foreshadowing to well publicized private sector failures to come. While governance conditions in the PtL were extreme, I believe that many of the warning signs shown in this book are relevant to the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.Not only that, but I found this book really easy to read, gripping even.
