Praise for The New Forensics
"Joe Anastasi's The New Forensics is a timely book that addresses some of today's crucial issues. He describes in fascinating detail how our national security is dependent, in part, on computers analyzing raw data collected by communication satellites. But the main thrust of the book is the story of how [forensic investigators using] computers today can detect fraud and other corporate criminal activities. The facts of Enron, WorldCom, and the other major scams are carefully laid out-as is the arrogance of the major actors. The real value of the book, however, is not in the explanations given, but rather in the moral issues it raises. It is a tale of contrasts-the stunning achievement of science in uncovering vast webs of criminal activities and the shocking revelation of human greed and corruption at the highest corporate levels."
-Honorable Charles Renfrew
former U.S. District Judge and Deputy Attorney General of the United States
"Never have financial scams been more sophisticated, or more expensive, than in corporate America at the dawn of the twenty-first century. The struggle to uncover fraud and restore integrity to the numbers' is Joe Anastasi's theme-this gripping account gets you behind the headlines, and into the heart of today's number one corporate issue."

"The New Forensics shows readers just how clearly modern-day footprints-captured by technology-beat old-fashioned handprints in solving corporate crime. Anastasi captures the intrigue, the drama, and the heat of investigative pursuit so vividly, it brought back fond memories of my days as an SEC enforcement attorney."
