Best Business Crime Writing of the Year Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A year ago it would have been difficult to conceive of an anthology of stories solely devoted to corporate malfeasance. Today, alas, the challenge has been to keep it confined to one volume. From P.J. O'Rourke's hilarious "How to Stuff a Wild Enron," in which he compares trying to understand Enron's finances to trying to buy an airline ticket at the best price, to Marc Peyser's perceptive look at that American institution, Martha Stewart.

Sometimes sad, occasionally hilarious, invariably informative, Best Business Crime Writing of the Year is a report from the frontlines by some of America's most talented and perceptive writers.

Includes:

  • "The New Bull Market" by Michael Kinsley from Slate
  • "In Praise of Corporate Corruption Boom" by Michael Lewis from Bloomberg News
  • "HardBall" by David McClintick from Forbes
  • "The Accountants? War" by Jane Mayer from the New Yorker
  • "Enron Debacle Highlights the Trouble With Stock Options" by Thomas Stewart from Business 2.0
  • "Investigating ImClone" by Alex Prud?homme from Vanity Fair

Review:

"It?s Surowiecki?s writing that glitters most brightly here — in the introduction, in the comments opening each section, even in the footnotes." Kirkus Reviews
