This is probably the best written business book I have ever read. It is definitely the most interesting.
The author's style of speculative narrative reads like a novel: full dialogs between participants in the scandal are quoted, complete with descriptions of the setting and even the character's mannerisms.
In an interview at the end of the abridged version, the author describes the painstaking research he used to reconstruct these events. It wouldn't be fair to say that the accuracy of the author's depiction suffered, but a little poetic license was unavoidably used in places.
In all, I would recommend this book for someone who doesn't like businees books or has never tried one. If you don't find this one accessible and enjoyable, then you're probably best to avoid the genre.
A true story that reads like a novel. One of the best pieces of documented journalism you will ever listen to. The author does not really judge any of the principals, but obviously there were some gigantic egos who were propelled by a complete lack of economic sense or scruples. The narrator is one of the best..............
A fantastic book. It reads like a novel which keeps your interest. There are many important lessons to be learned from the mistakes made by the people in this story.
a very good listen...in depth, and very probative discussion of a serious financial issue of our time.
Very interesting and exiciting read. I felt like I was actually there watching Enron implode. Especially recommended for accountants and lawyers.
Reads more like a hard-boiled novel than business nonfiction, which makes me wonder exactly how accurate it is. It helps if you're an accountant (which I am) to understand the intricacies of the schemes used by Enron - the descriptions of the deals and the accounting for them are fairly deailed. I found the book to be compelling and surprisingly fast-paced, especially in the abridged version.
