"This study of Edward Snowden and others who exposed wrongdoing asks why things rarely turn out well for them"

Another reason for their marginal presence is suggested in Tom Mueller’s expansive study of the subject, Crisis of Conscience: Whistleblowing in an Age of Fraud. “Many people who blow the whistle are able to do so precisely because they are not like most of us, or how we’re told to be,” writes Mueller. “They’re not ‘team players’, not ‘go along to get along’ personalities. They can be prickly and doctrinaire. They can seem obsessive, even unstable.”
