675 pages, but the writer has a talent for telling stories,
and there are hundreds of stories here.
Very pleasant and interesting to read.

But is it all true?

The author makes it sound like the slimey ratfink Andy Fastow was 90% to blame,
and that Skilling and Lay barely knew what was going on.

I find that hard to believe.

In any case, Skilling is still in prison.

And CEO's are still looting companies with excessive pay and outrageous stock options.
