Anatomy Of Greed The Unshredded Truth From An Enron Insider Cruver
Brian Cruver first entered the "Death Star," Enron's office complex, in March 2001. He was 29 years old, an eager MBA ready to cash in as a new hire with one of America's most highly valued companies. But, from his first day - when his new boss warned him, "there was a mix-up in the hiring process," but that it was "no big deal...just think of it like you're adopted" - to his last, when he and his colleagues were given 30 minutes to leave the building, Cruver found himself enmeshed in a business cult that each day grew only more bizarre.
Brian Cruver was a first-hand witness to the disturbing, surreal and hilarious moments of American business giant Enron's long dance with death. When he first entered Enron's office complex, 'the Death Star', he was the epitome of the classic Enron employee: young, brash, obscenely overpaid and sporting a brand-new MBA. From his first day, however, when he was told that some colleagues hadn't really wanted to see him hired, he found himself in the middle of a venal greed machine whose story unfolded with Kafka-esque absurdity and frustration.
