Customer Review

on 22 August 2005
Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind are two financial journalists, who have decided to tell the lengthy and convoluted story of the fallen energy company Enron. The company was begun as a natural gas trading concern in 1985 - within 15 years it was America's seventh biggest company. The authors have used meticulous research, married with smart prose to illustrate a compelling story of human greed. The story is refracted through the individual experiences of a handful of executives; the patrician CEO Kenneth Lay, arrogant ideas man Jeff Skilling, and the corrupt and contemptible CFO Andrew Fastow. This is a brisk, and intelligent book, which is easy to read and explains complex ideas with clarity. It is the best written on the subject, and may be the best factual book on business of the last 20 years.
