This is a listen that is very good, important, and frustrating. Anyone who knows Mark Deakins's work knows how good a narrator he is. With this audiobook, he takes a work that could have been dry and uninspiring and turns it into a performance that leaves the listener engaged but frustrated. Engaged because the work of whistleblowers is so vital to our democracy. Frustrated because it's depressing how whistleblowers can be treated. This audiobook covers misdeeds and malfeasance in both public and private sectors. It explains why whistleblowers do what they do--and the price they often pay for their deeds. Deakins uses the right degrees of incredulity, exasperation, explanation, and enthusiasm without ever overdoing it. This audiobook is not to be missed.
