Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (movie)

How did one of America’s most successful companies get that way only to fall apart? Apparently, very easily. The movie version of the book takes us through the miraculous rise of the company (in which we learn that miracles don’t happen) to its disastrous fall (which was a long time coming) and the various players who made fortunes off America’s suffering. Frighteningly fascinating.
