This is a book about avoiding mistakes when making basic business decisions—the kind of mistakes that can result in catastrophic expenses, lawsuits, losses, and bankruptcies. As a veteran private investigator and business consultant, Christopher Eiben has witnessed firsthand how frequently these avoidable mistakes can wreak financial and personal havoc on businesspeople. Through in-depth analysis of authentic case studies, and insight born of his years of experience in the field, Eiben explains how certain prescriptive measures—more careful hiring practices, improved security, effective and thorough due diligence, and others—can limit risks and improve the odds of business success. In the current business climate, with the ever-increasing strategies available to the unscrupulous, the devious, and the outright criminal, this kind of “paranoia” isn’t just a necessary tool—it’s a virtue.
