Faster, Higher, Farther

If, like us, you’ve been fascinated, intrigued, appalled and surprised by developments concerning the Volkswagen Group diesel emissions scandal, commonly referred to as “Deiselgate”, then this is the definitive book for you.

Written by Jack Ewing, who has worked as a journalist in Germany since 1994 and joined the New York Times as European economics correspondent in 2010, this expose begins its story with Volkswagen’s inception before following the story of how the company became a global force in the automotive industry. However, the company’s fortunes turned in September 2015, when news of the diesel emissions fraud spread and transformed a household byname for quality, reliability and trust into greed and deception. This book studies the corporate desires that ultimately pushed VW’s employees to illegal methods to fulfil over-ambitious targets.
