“Griffin is the most unusual author, but he is the perfect guide that unveils the inner workings of private equity, corporate greed and failed business ethics. Front Row Seat is a binge read!”
“...How could this be Steve’s first book? It reads like a John Grisham novel! Just when you think it couldn’t get any better (or worse in Steve’s case), it does. Definitely 5 stars!”
”Great read! I read the book in 3 days - a great reminder that cutting corners in building your business is a recipe for disaster. Worth the read!”
”This book takes the reader on a bumpy ride in order to reveal how one’s principles were able to combat greed and corruption. He successfully portrays multiple instances of white-collar crime while also battling his own struggles with Parkinson’s Disease. Bravo Steve!”
“This was an amazing read. I could not believe everything Steve went through both personally and professionally. The case studies at the end are a must for any business leader on company ethics. Thank you for sharing this story.”
“I could not put this book down. Finished it in 2 days. I can’t believe this is Steve’s first novel. What transpired at this company was truly amazing. I can’t imagine going through this - no amount of pay would have been worth being the CEO of this mess.”
