The tenth-anniversary edition of the definitive account of the Enron scandal, updated with a new chapter

The Enron scandal brought down one of the most admired companies of the 1990s. Countless books and articles were written about it, but only The Smartest Guys in the Room holds up a decade later as the definitive narrative. For this tenth anniversary edition, McLean and Elkind have revisited the fall of Enron and its aftermath, in a new chapter that asks why Enron still matters. They also reveal the fates of the key players in the scandal.

Great book, even better the second time I read it (10 years later). Amazing story and information that you sometimes just can't believe. Highly recommend

Well written book about a seminal event during the dot com meltdown, for those of us who lived and lost through it. My only complaint is that the authors tried to demonize a number of things that went on which I felt were/are pretty common business practices. The Enron management did enough bad stuff they really didn't need to extend the book out to the grey areas.
