"a book as depressing as it is gripping"

As Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz describe in Unacceptable, a book as depressing as it is gripping, such questionable but legal activities were only the start. Over the past decade, the US Department of Justice says Singer offered much more to at least 30 wealthy couples, from the actress Felicity Huffman to the corporate attorney Gordon Caplan and to the social impact fund manager Bill McGlashan. McGlashan is fighting the case, pleading that he made a $50,000 donation but paid for “legitimate college counselling” and did not understand that Singer's approach involved bribery.
