The Smartest Guys in the Room: The Amazing Rise and Scandalous Fall of Enron

by Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind
£8.99   paperback  Penguin Books (2004)

The Smartest Guys in the Room: The Amazing Rise and Scandalous Fall of Enron by Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind Until 2001, Enron could do no wrong. Feared by rivals and worshipped by investors, its leaders were hailed as visionaries. Then a young Fortune writer named Bethany McLean wrote an article entitled 'Is Enron overpriced?' - and the company fell apart. The definitive story of the astonishing rise and fall of Enron comes alive for the first time in this gripping narrative by McLean and Peter Elkind.
 
Drawn from a wide range of private documents and exclusive resources, The Smartest Guys in the Room is an expose of people drunk on their own success, certain of their own brilliance, and so fuelled by greed that they believed they could fool the world. This is the one book you have to read to understand the debacle that sent shivers around the world, tainted the President, and called into question corporate governance throughout America.
