THE 50 MOST DANGEROUS COMPANIES IN THE WORLD is a a book that is not afraid to name things. an investigation that will change the perspective of many on who they are ruling the future of the world and how little we can trust them. It is terrible to realize for certain that money has become more important than people’s well-being. Investigations like this on, accurate and rigorous, renew the sense of the publisher’s profession

Hungarian publisher Scolar pre-empted the title immediately after reading and they said:
When reading this we are sitting behind Ikea desks, using Microsoft laptops, maybe even drinking Coca-Cola. After the Covid times we plan to travel with Ryanair on a Boeing airplane. But until we cannot travel, we advise to read this book, which can bring closer to the understanding the world around us. We are happy to present to the Hungarian readers this undoubtedly exciting reading.

The book’s title 50 Most Dangerous Companies is a compelling lure. It makes you think of an excavator hoisting out the biggest crooks one by one. In truth, journalists Juha-Pekka Raeste and Hannu Sokala deliver multifaceted analyses of the powerful companies. …/ Raeste and Sokala deliver excellent journalism. It takes initiative, it’s thought-provoking, entertaining, and appropriately polemicizing.
