Description:

Praise for EnromThe Rise and Fall"A sober and cleareyed book . . . Fox places the unspooling of Enron in its markethistory context, and his book has gravitas."--Barrons"Offers the most detailed explanation of Enron as a business."--The New York Times"A solid, intelligent, and fair account of the hubris that made Enron famous and important, then crazy and crooked."--Martin Mayer, author of The Fed and The Bankers"[Foxs] candid, indepth examination of Enrons remarkable evolution, corporate culture, and ultimate downfall is in itself remarkable for being both scrupulously detailed while remaining a clear and enjoyable read."--ERisk.comThe word "Enron" has officially entered the American vocabulary--not as the symbol of excellence and innovation that Chairman Kenneth Lay envisioned but as the corporate embodiment of greed, excess, and unprecedented fraud. Never in history has one company plummeted so quickly from the heights of power and glory to the depths of public humiliation, bankruptcy, and criminal investigation, dragging so many individuals and firms down with it. Simultaneously fascinating and frightening, Enron: The Rise and Fall provides todays most illuminating and entertaining look on what was right--and wrong--with late twentiethcentury corporate America.
