Best Business Crime Writing of the Yearby James (edt) Surowiecki
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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
