Publisher Weekly Calls Rules for Whistleblower an “Essential Tool”

On June 1, Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto founding partner Stephen M. Kohn released his latest book: Rules for Whistleblowers: A Handbook for Doing What’s Right

Publishers Weekly featured Rules for Whistleblowers as its nonfiction selection in the Booklife reviews section of the July, 2023 edition of the magazine.

The review highlights the practical guidance laid out clearly by Kohn in Rules for Whistleblowers:

Celebrating and demystifying ‘modernized laws designed to protect, incentivize, and reward whistleblowers,’ like Dodd-Frank, Kohn covers a wide range of specialized scenarios, such as what it takes to expose wrongdoing as a federal employee or as a worker in a private company, how anonymity is or isn’t ensured in different circumstances, whether a whistleblower should speak to the press, what additional complexities go into shining a light on international corruption, and much more. The guidance is pragmatic and specific, tailored to highly particular situations, from a list of factors to consider before removing a document from work to factors to consider to be sure a whistleblower qualifies for a reward.

The Publishers Weekly review concludes by stating that “simply having the truth on one’s side is not enough. This book is an essential tool for exposing wrongdoing and protecting yourself.”
