If you like financial scandals... it doesn't get any better or bigger. Presents details and insights that one probably hasn't heard before.
The scope of the incompetence.
This was one of the books that I absolutely could not stop listening to. The 30 hours flew by and I wanted more.
its in a class all its own
a must read for any investor, my wife is a CFO and actually bought some of the Enron assets when the feds closed them down so knew some of these jerks. It shows how bad it hurts the working class when these things happen
I hold both an MBA and a BFA. I enjoy being and Executive Producer, Editor, Audiobook Director and Narrator, Actor and Stunt Coordinator.
While I was completing my MBA I found this book and devoured it. Not only is the material important to our business generation but it is riveting. This book tied all of my study together and created a healthy business critic out of me. Read and listen to this book!
It was like listening to a fast pace novel. 30hrs of my life went by too fast!
The Enron scandal presented in a way that anyone could understand. Who would have thought that could happen!
All About Books
The Enron story is beyond the average person's capability of understanding, myself included. This book allowed me to understand the actions that brought Enron down. The writing is excellent. It feels more like a novel than a nonfiction work. I highly recommend this to anyone that is interested in the Enron story, finance, accounting, and human nature.
I have listened to The Smartest Guys in the Room, and I can tell you that this book provides a much more subtle telling of the Enron tale than its more famous cousin. The major players are more human and, therefore, more believable in this narrative. I recommend it without reservation.
Not sure the answer to that question but the narration was top notch and complimented the flow of the story.
Not possible but this is a story and narrator that you will find yourself sitting in the driveway a few extra minutes to finish the chapter.
It is a whacked out true story that is entertaining. Best ENRON book out there. It is long. Very long but worth it. The story sticks with you and I found myself a year later listening to it again when I was needing listening material.
I almost gave up on this and I am glad I didn't. What the author did was incredible. Great story and great orator. I saw a doc on Enron and thought that might make this repetitive but no. I can't imagine any other book or doc coming close to this content.
I would recommend this to anyone who has an interest in business culture and how Enron literally changed the way business are today.
The performer does an excellent job of putting a vocal twist on each character.
