"Robust compliance and corporate governance is an absolute necessity in today's business environment. This new book by Anthony Tarantino is an authoritative guide to understanding and implementing compliance and regulatory requirements in the United States and around the world. From SOX to COSO to ERM, this book covers them all."
—Martin T. Biegelman, Certified Fraud Examiner, Fellow and Regent Emeritus of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, and coauthor of Executive Roadmap to Fraud Prevention and Internal Control: Creating a Culture of Compliance
"If compliance wasn't difficult enough, now companies are faced with a barrage of technology vendors claiming to automate compliance as if it were a project. In his new book, Dr. Tarantino paints the reality of the situation: companies need to embrace the broader tenets of governance and use technology to embed governance policies and controls into their daily business processes. Only then can they gain business value from their compliance investments."
—Chris Capdevila, CEO and cofounder, LogicalApps

I'm using this book as a text in a graduate class. The professor and some other students have the paper version of the book and make reference to it by page numbers, which we Kindle users don't have. This is a problem. I would think that page numbers of some sort would be useful to all Kindle users, too. Granted that different editions of a book have different page numbers, but giving the page numbers for one edition would help us get close to particular text based on a page number. If my friend is reading a paper edition, we would find it hard to discuss something in a book with long chapters unless I have some sort of page numbers in my Kindle edition.
