Review: Eichenwald’s Conspiracy of Fools

Conspiracy of Fools: A True Story

Kurt Eichenwald

Eichenwald is one of the best business writers around. Here, he gives the definitive account of what happened at Enron. The accounting explanations here can get a little hairy (because what was going inside Enron’s accounting was pretty bizarre) but it is still a fascinating read. I don’t know what is more bizarre, that these dudes thought they could get away with what was basically an elaborate shell game, or that they did get away with an elaborate shell game for so long.

If you’re into business books, this is a must read.

Recommended for the enthusiast.
