Although only a small number of business leaders have been convicted of illegal business practices, all of Corporate America has been blemished by the splatter, and U.S. corporations must work hard to regain their stakeholders� respect and confidence. Most people hurt by corporate disasters have limited knowledge of how corporations are governed.

This book provides an insider perspective on major issues facing corporate boards. The corporate failures of the 21st century and the repercussions of these failures, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, have intensified focus on corporate governance. As the heightened awareness of, and interest in regulation begins to wane, directors must maintain a deliberate focus on compliance while demonstrating strong conviction for business success.

Extreme personal leadership is the foundation of enlightened corporate governance. This book encourages directors to use extreme personal leadership as the touchstone for delivering sustainable long-term shareholder value.

We all have a vested interest in the continued evolution of the governance of American corporations.
