News & Opinion: inBubbleWrap - The Smartest Guys in the Room

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:05 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

It being Monday as it is, we're back at inBubbleWrap, giving away another one of The 100 Best Business Books of All Time. This week, we have The Smartest Guys in the Room: The Amazing Rise and Scandalous Fall of Enron. As Jack will tell you, it's the best narrative of the Enron saga that exists on bookshelves, and the edition that we're giving away is updated to include the Enron trial and the death of Ken Lay.

One of the book's authors, Bethany McLean, is the woman who originally broke the story and was recently on The Daily Show discussing the Enron scandal and other, more recent transgressions in the world of economic fraud--such as Bernie Madoff's Ponzi Scheme. She is also working on a book about the current crisis with NYT columnist and author of last year's Good Guys and Bad Guys, Joe Nocera. That should be a good read when it comes out. For now, though, you can head on over to inBubbleWrap and win a copy of her first book. We have 20 available.
