If this audiobook were a court of law, the Enron bosses would be found guilty of everything but murder. Using financial schemes as unsound as chain letters and pyramid schemes, the greedy and corrupt corporate executives caused the company’s predictable crash to bankruptcy. Peppered with the locker-room profanities of participants, the story of the complicated financial maneuvers defies comprehension, but the narrator does not. Without unwarranted theatrics, Stephen Lang’s clever portrayal of numerous conversations adds needed color; his prose flows with changing inflections that maintain one’s interest level. The painful revelations in this production may make Enron investors cry as hard as they did the first time their mothers read them BAMBI.
