Cast tells the story of Healthsouth through its troubled times in 2003 through the recovery in a well-written readable style.

Going South: An Inside Look at Corruption and Greed, and the Power of the HealthSouth Message Board (Dearborn Trade Publishing, 2005). Barton Biggs, Hedgehogging (John Wiley & Sons, 2006). Pity the poor CEO or board member at a public company these days. His admiration for the message board’s power to disseminate information is obvious to even the casual reader of Going South, who may quickly grow tired of the long and frequent message excerpts from a former HealthSouth food service manager named Peter Krum.

Cast reveals how high school dropout and CEO Scrushy managed a corporation of more than 44,000 employees in 1,700 clinics - while leading a country western band and flying corporate jets; why online trading behaviour in the HealthSouth case supports new theories about group decision making; and how the Sarbanes-Oxley Act applies to executives who certify false financial records. William Cast, MD, is a nationally recognised physician and entrepreneur.

Healthsouth has become, in the mind of the public and media, synonymous with Enron and Worldcom. But the true story is much different. Rather than collapsing into bankruptcy, Healthsouth has survived and is flourishing under new management.

Dr. Cast tells the story of Healthsouth through its troubled times in 2003 through the recovery in a well-written readable style. But the most important lesson in this book is how a few investors (myself included) made lots of money by looking beyond the media reports and sharing information online that was not being disseminated through any other media outlet. The real story here is one of individual investors beating out the so-called experts at their own game. While this was a unique situation, some would call once-in-a-lifetime, every individual investor should be prepared to take advantage of a similar situation. This book should be required reading for every investor.

Dr. Cast never cease to amaze me with his diversity, resilience, eccentricities,and good humour. I suppose that's a

roundabout way of saying that as an author he is as captivating as he is an outstanding fellow human being.

In "Going South, not only do you get an insider glimpse at the chronology of Healthsouth; You'll discover enlightenment aimed at keeping ahead of the curve in investment. The "How and Why things happen" and most important, the latest trends. Far more than a stinging exposi of corporate corruption ... The detail financial sections are templates to understanding how to become very wealthy.

"Going South" is one of the most compelling business books ever published a must read and add to your personal library.

A great chronicle of the rise-fall-rise of Healthsouth and the Yahoo message board investors who stood together to weather the storm and prosper.

A must read for those interested in massive corporate corruption, narcissism, fear, intimidation and greed.

SEC investigations, FBI raids, suicide, taped conversations, rogue bondholders and cooked books are some of the ingredients of this true story.
