Revered as the "father of modern internal auditing," Larry Sawyer is legendary among internal auditors around the world. For more than 25 years, Sawyer contributed to the knowledge base of the internal audit profession. This publication presents a compilation of 22 articles he authored for Internal Auditor magazine. Sawyer's writings offer a wealth of timeless and sound advice for audit practitioners, managers, and audit committee members.

Many of the articles provide useful and sorely needed tips and techniques for interpersonal, communication, and facilitation skills. Other articles document the evolution of internal auditing into a full-fledged profession with professional Standards, a Code of Ethics, and certification programs.
Sawyer's articles, organized in three major sections, address the internal audit profession and internal audit practice and complement his highly popular reference book titled Sawyer's Internal Auditing, 5th Edition.
