Conspiracy of Fools

There is this book by Kurt Eichenwald (writer of "The Informat") "Conspiracy of Fools" which I need to talk about.
I rarely advise someone to NOT read a book, and this is one of these occasions. Unless you are a business major writing a paper (and a boring one probably) about the implosion of Enron, you'd rather stay away from this 750-page modern-day business epic. Actually it reminded me of the movie Troy. It is nothing but history and a detailed look into the activities of these executives who lead Enron into destruction. I was certainly expecting much better from a Pulitzer Prize nominee. Flat style, useless details, empty characters, and endless monotony.
What a waste of time it was. I really hate it when this happens.
