Two things happened that I never expected when I read "Walking the Corporate Beat". First, I really enjoyed a non-fiction book on business. Second, I learned something.

In "Walking the Corporate Beat", Michael Tabman takes principles he learned as a police officer and FBI agent and applies them to running a company. It amazed me that the same rules and procedures police and investigative officers use can help a business run more smoothly.

"Walking the Corporate Beat" is highly readable. By using

That was fun!! I knew from the first page that I would enjoy it. Those were great questions to ponder. I was just as curious as to why the author was scolded for catching the bank robber as I was as to how he got a date with a pretty girl after writing her a ticket. The stories were very interesting and I learned a lot. I never heard of the Broken Windows theory for fighting crime, and it made sense for taking care of the little things in life before they spin out of control. This was much diffe ...more

I read this book after reading Michael Tabman's novel Midnight Sin. This was a non-fiction book. Tabman used really interesting stories from his law enforcement experience to make a point - basically, why some things got screwed up and why some things worked right.The stories were from the mob to drugs to terrorism and were usually pretty funny. It gave some interesting insight into the decision making of police and FBI. This was a fast read that was easy to follow and understand. I really enjoy ...more

This was the most different book I ever read. With all the true stories, it was almost as thrilling as Midnight Sin. I really liked how the police stories related to real life events. My favorite was how an FBI agent's big ego almost screwed up an undercover operation.This book was fun to read. I laughed as much I was amazed by what happens behind the scenes when police and FBI are doing their jobs.

After 27 years from street cop to FBI senior executive, I have seen as much action on the street as I have behind closed doors in the office. I've learned a few lessons along the way. Share some of my experiences -from thugs and drugs to mobsters, terrorists and the stranger sitting beside you. This book will open your eyes to dangers you never knew existed.

This is a must-read for business students/MBA's. Business ethics is not a science and yet it's taught that way. This is a look at ethics from the top down. Everything that you should know but never learn in college. This book takes a close look at the reasons for unethical behavior such as "group think" and how ego can lead us astray of our goals and lead to disaster.
