Faster, Higher, Farther: The Volkswagen Scandal

A shocking expos of Volkswagen's fraud by the New York Times reporter who covered the scandal.

In 2015, Volkswagen proudly reached its goal of surpassing Toyota as the world's largest automaker. Two months later, the EPA disclosed that Volkswagen had installed software that deceived emissions-testing mechanisms in 11 million cars. By August 2016, VW had settled with American regulators and car owners for $15 billion, with additional fines and suits still looming. In Faster, Higher, Farther, Jack Ewing rips the lid off the conspiracy. He describes VW's rise from " the people's car" during the Nazi era to one of Germany's most prestigious and important global brands, touted for being " green." He paints vivid portraits of Volkswagen chairman Ferdinand Pi ch and chief executive Martin Winterkorn, arguing that their unremitting ambition drove employees, working feverishly in pursuit of impossible sales targets, to illegal methods. Faster, Higher, Farther reveals how the succeed-at-all-costs culture prevalent in modern boardrooms led to one of corporate history's farthest-reaching cases of fraud" with potentially devastating consequences. 8 pages of illustrations
