Context. There’s a great new book by New York Times reporter Jack Ewing about Volkswagen’s use of a defeat device to hide the true emissions from their “clean” diesel cars. Titled, Faster, Higher, Farther: The Volkswagen Scandal, Ewing’s book provides a great context for this scandal; he describes the corporate culture and leadership that promoted an environment in which such a scandal could take place. The total resolution of this scandal is still underway, so the final words aren’t in this book. Whether you’ve read a lot or a little about the Volkswagen case, this book conveys much to any reader with an interest in corporate culture and leadership.
Rating: Five-star (I love it)
