In Risk and Ruin, Gavin Benke argues that we ignore Enron’s history and failures to our peril. The book provides a readable account that includes lots of rich history, institutional detail, and salacious anecdotes, making a convincing case for Enron as a harbinger of financial, environmental, and production crises yet to come in the first decades of the twenty-first century.
