The 19th book, Count Down: The Past, Present and Uncertain Future of the Big Four Accounting Firms by Jim Peterson, looks at the complex challenges facing the Big Four, questions the feasibility and achievability of the various proferred "solutions," and proposes an evolved model for Big Audit that would be both sustainable for the large firms and fit to serve the capital markets of the 21st century.
