Now headed for the silver screen, the film adaptation of The Informant is directed by Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh, with Matt Damon set to portray Mark Whitacre, the executive who wore a wire for the FBI as they tried to bring down corporate giant Archer Daniels Midland - but whose dark secrets and hidden agenda threatened to unravel one of the largest price-fixing cases in history.
"The Informant is epic in scope, a tale of human foibles - of greed, deceit, and arrogance - and also of the search for truth. Eichenwald has told it masterfully, with the narrative drive of a novel. I guarantee it'll keep you reading late into the night." (Jonathan Harr, A Civil Action)
"The Informant is superb reporting in the service of a great story, one with the drama and suspense of a Le Carré novel. Set squarely in the American heartland, delving into the inner sanctum of a global corporation, it explores the shifting boundaries of truth and deception, loyalty and betrayal. It is a remarkable achievement." (James B. Stewart, Den of Thieves and Blind Eye)
"The twists and turns of this nonfiction work leave many thrillers in the dust. Eichenwald's spare prose and journalistic eye for detail make the pages fly." (David Baldacci, Absolute Power and Saving Faith)

Great Story - Fine Abridgment
First, I avoid abridged audio books. They more often than not listen like "cut and paste." This is not the case with this edition of The Informant. It is well written, a fine abridgment, and Arthur Morey is up to his usual performance.
Otherwise, this is the story of a ADM "Supermarket to the World" employee who blows the wistle on price fixing. It is informative, exciting, and a unfortunate story of one man's experience.
It is well worth the listener's time.
