In 2000, when The Informant was published, few would've imagined that a story about price fixing at Archer Daniels Midland could be as un-put-downable as the best crime fiction. Yet critics, and consumers, agreed: New York Times reporter Kurt Eichenwald had taken the stuff of dry business reporting and turned it into an unparalleled page-turner. With Conspiracy of Fools, Eichenwald has done it again.

Say the name 'Enron' and most people believe they've heard all about the story that imperiled a presidency, destroyed a marketplace, and changed Washington and Wall Street forever. But in the hands of Kurt Eichenwald, the players we think we know and the business practices we think have been exposed are transformed into entirely new, and entirely gripping, material. The cast includes but is not limited to George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Paul O'Neill, Harvey Pitt, Colin Powell, Gray Davis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Alan Greenspan, Ken Lay, Andy Fastow, Jeff Skilling, Bill Clinton, Rupert Murdoch, and Michael Eisner. Providing a you-are-there glimpse behind closed doors in the executive suites of the Enron Corporation, the Texas governor's mansion, the Justice Department, and even the Oval Office, Conspiracy of Fools is an all-true financial and political thriller of cinematic proportions.

    " I thought this was a great book--IF--you have a grasp of structured finance and fund formation. If you don't know what that means, then get the DVD of Smartest Guys in the Room. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Stephen Adams | 1/27/2014

    " An excellent, compelling, compassionate an honest account of one of the most infamous business disasters in the last 50 years. It's a long book, but it reads much faster than it looks. I would be interested in knowing whether other observers and describers would call out the villains and heroes in the same way. Some may not like his characterizing and interpretations of the characters, but all would understand the importance of standing up to power better from this book, particularly when that power is your boss.
