Tom Devine, Government Accountability Project Legal Director and '80 alum, published The Corporate Whistleblower's Survival Guide: A Handbook to Committing the Truth in November 2011 and won the prestigious getAbstract International Business Book of the Year Award at the Frankfurt Book Fair. The prize seeks to honor books that have made a worldwide impact in business and economics.

The guide prevailed in the face of much competition, as it was chosen from over 10,000 non-fiction books, and then selected from 10 finalists. getAbstract specializes in summarizing important business-related books in an effort to provide executives with the best of the latest business knowledge. As a winner, The Corporate Whistleblower's Survival Guide represents one of the most innovative business books of 2011. Along with the honor of being chosen, Devine and Maassarani join the ranks of previous winners Nassim Nicholas Taleb (The Black Swan, 2007), Robert Shiller (The New Financial Order, 2003), Benoît Mandelbrot (The (Mis)behavior of Markets, 2004) and Chris Anderson (The Long Tail, 2006).
