This past Sunday Katharine Whittemore of the Boston Globe published an article entitled “A look at books on whistle-blowing.” Whittemore writes that it is currently “kind of a strange, explosive golden age” for whistleblowers.
The “tipping point” in a cultural shift that favors protecting whistleblowers is the fact that there is now a “self-help book” for potential whistleblowers. She points readers to The Whistleblower’s Handbook: A Step-by-Step Guide to Doing What’s Right and Protecting Yourself by Stephen M. Kohn. Her review calls it “vastly shrewd and practical” tool. She also says it “offers an astute long view of American whistle-blowing” and it is “quite the march of progress” that such a book exists. Read Ms. Whittemore’s full review here.
