Summary:

Texas-based investigative reporter Bryce has been writing about Enron since 1997. Here he traces the rise and fall of their empire, concentrating on the activities of its high-flying executives and their various fraudulent schemes. He argues that issues of regulation and accounting are not as important as the moral corruption that he sees as having been rampant in every aspect of the lives of Skilling, Lay, and the other Enron executives. Hence, he spends a lot of time detailing the various romantic affairs and examples of personal greed, as well as discussing the company's institutional corruption. Annotation c.
