Cardiac Arrest

Five Heart-Stopping Years as a CEO On the Feds' Hit-List

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


It started as a false accusation by an embittered former employee and ended a half-decade later in a San Antonio courtroom with two words – “not guilty.” Beating the 10-count felony criminal prosecution – over just one FDA-cleared medical device that made up only 0.1% of the company’s sales and never harmed a single patient— took a 121-lawyer team and a $25 million legal bill. Even a single guilty verdict would have put the 500-employee company’s continued existence in doubt and sent its CEO Howard Root to prison for years. In Cardiac Arrest, Howard tells the true story of out-of-control prosecutors leveraging vague federal regulations to manufacture criminal charges that put his company and his freedom in peril.

Customer Reviews

Great but scary

This is an amazing story about federal overreach. Howard Root is a brave man for looking the federal monster in the eye and saying go to hell! The many typos do not detract from the story.
