Brewer’s 2nd book is a riveting account of her career at Enron and her decision to blow the whistle. Described by the Economist as one of the “real” whistleblowers, Brewer is one of the last to meet with former CEO Ken Lay – just two weeks before his untimely death.
In her nearly three years at Enron, she was responsible for risk management in energy operations, the e-commerce initiatives for Enron’s water subsidiary, power trading in the California markets at the height of the 2000 energy crises, and oversaw competitive intelligence at Enron Broadband Services.
In the words of the original publisher, “Nearly every page is filled with unethical, if not illegal behavior.” The raw and often wicked sense of humor of Brewer’s co-author fully captures the cut-throat corporate lives of the movers and shakers inside the 7th largest company. As a mid-level executive, Brewer had a front row seat in the drama that unfolded as the company crashed in dramatic fashion leaving its mark in capitalism as the poster-child for corporate corruption.
