Overview

There are many books about Enron on the market, but this one is truly written by an insider! Ms. Brewer describes the day-to-day existence at Enron in a manner never before captured. She takes you into the office where you experience everything from petty backbiting to the insidious dog-eat-dog atmosphere that poisoned Enron from the executive suite on down. Her book is candid, revealing and she even admits to her own mistakes! An incredible read!

 

She even details how a major publisher dangled a six-figure advance for the book in front of her face and then pulled the plug at the last minute! Undaunted, she turned to us to make sure the truth got out!

 

This book also makes a great reference guide to the scandal and Enron's business practices, as it contains an in-depth index.

    Want a peek into Enron, read this book!

    Shame on HarperCollins for pulling back...what could you possibly be afraid of? This book is very well written and accounts for day to day life at Enron and the players. House of Cards is just that, from executive to the secretarial pool. I think this must be the gate to hell...so much greed and evil doings. While I'm not a women's liber, the women of enron did nothing to make a woman seem credible in business. I wonder if they got discounts from the matress factory??? I would also suggest attending one of Lynn's speaking engagements, her story is truly riveting.

    Excellant reading

    Lynn Brewers account of her experiance is a shocking, well written, first hand account of her experiance at Enron. Because she was bounced from one section to another of the corporation, she got a good look at many different sections of the corporation and its offshoots and found pervasive,unbridled corruption throughout. It is no wonder a major publisher backed out of a commitment to publish the work; they were probably afraid of being sued. Brewer's account indescriminately bashes employees from the lowest to the highest positions in the corporation with a very effective weapon--the truth. I highly recommend this book.
