Author Charles Ford opens the New Year with the release of his debut book, The Anatomy of a Corporation Lynching. The riveting true story reveals his innocent submission of an idea to the company he worked for, and being fired by them to cloak their theft of it. Until Ford’s revelation, it was a story the corporation successfully suppressed in the media and from the public.
Released on , this biographical recollection goes behind the scenes of a public copyright and civil rights lawsuit that took place in between the author and Con Edison. Immediately upon release, TACL shot to #1 New release in its category—copyright law and remained consistently for over a week, while ranking high in selfhelp/motivation.
While employed with the company Ford sued when his poor man copyrighted employee suggestion idea was misappropriated without recognition and used for major gain. When the company refused to be forthright about a slogan’s evolution, it became a matter of litigation and the public records tell the tale—thus no names have been changed to protect the innocent. From the origins of the idea, to the subsequent work-place retaliation after going to the media, the accounts act as a motivational guide to people going through a similar corporate crisis.
