“Silver Parachutes”

A new non-fiction book, that couldn’t be timelier, given the current financial crises.

Wilmington, DE – October 2008 – The book is based on discreet investigations by the author A. Otto Thav and published on  He came upon data discrepancies while consulting on several envisioneering projects throughout his career.  And when he investigated the discrepancies further, he discovered the real root causes to several white-collar scams by middle managers.


The book is a collection of real incidents of white-collar scams that collectively cost losses of hundreds of billions of dollars to our economy each year.  The author provides strategies to recognize and prevent the scams, with financial and entrepreneurial impetus to 'be the change' to increase profits and consciousness, and propagate awareness.  Mr. Thav feels the book is best described by a quote from John F. Kennedy: “The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.”; which he included on the cover.
