Fox provides a critical link in the Enron story by focusing on a company history. This book is not really the story of Lay, Skilling and Fastow and the fall of Arthur Anderson.

It is a careful business analysis and not a narrative so if you do not ...more

A mixed bag, this one. It does give some aspects on Enron's legitimate and early business-making, thus providing some less catchy but still interesting info. But, on the other hand, it totally fails to flesh out the characters involved and portray the high drama that occurred. Even during the company's dramatic last weeks, it reads as if everything was calm and easy-going.

In the end: rather boring...

Not really what I was expecting. This is a book about the history of Enron, going all the way back to the 80's when two company's merged to create the Enron that would change everything. I'm more interested in the later years of the company so this wasn't what I was looking for.

The book in general was a dense read filled with inner workings of the industry. It was very informative and if I was interested I would be more inclined to finish it. However it just wasn't at I was looking for.
