There were dozens of books about Watergate, but only <b>All the President's Men</b> gave readers the full story, with all the drama and nuance and exclusive reporting. And thirty years later, if you're going to read only one book on Watergate, that's still the one. Today, Enron is the biggest business story of our time, and <b>Fortune</b> senior writers Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind are the new Woodward and Bernstein.<p>Remarkably, it was just two years ago that Enron was thought to epitomize a great New Economy company, with its skyrocketing profits and share price. But that was before <b>Fortune</b> published an article by McLean that asked a seemingly innocent question: How exactly does Enron make money? From that point on, Enron's house of cards began to crumble. Now, McLean and Elkind have investigated much deeper, to offer the definitive book about the Enron scandal and the fascinating people behind it.</p><p>Meticulously researched and character driven, <b>Smartest Guys in the Room</b> takes the reader deep into Enron's past—and behind the closed doors of private meetings. Drawing on a wide range of unique sources, the book follows Enron's rise from obscurity to the top of the business world to its disastrous demise. It reveals as never before major characters such as Ken Lay, Jeff Skilling, and Andy Fastow, as well as lesser known players like Cliff Baxter and Rebecca Mark. <b>Smartest Guys in the Room</b> is a story of greed, arrogance, and deceit—a microcosm of all that is wrong with American business today. Above all, it's a fascinating human drama that will prove to be the authoritative account of the Enron scandal.</p>

<h2>A TOY TO KILL FOR</h2>Celebrated criminal lawyer Marc Kadella takes on the fall-out of a class action suit against a beloved corporate toy company gone wrong—and ends up falling down a rabbit hole of <b>insider trading, sex scandal, political corruption, and murder, in the eighth page-turner of the Marc Kadella legal mystery series. </b><br /><br />Like most investors, venture capitalist Cal Simpson has his fingers in many a financial pie. There’s cutting edge war plane procurement, state-of-the-art toy manufacturing, and the occasional affair with the right politician (to name a few). <b>Some call him a shady Wall Street kinda guy. Others know him to be a tyrant—a mastermind with puppets intricately connected by a billion dollar string.</b> <br /><br />One of his pet projects is the newest Cannon Brothers toy—<b>a motorized skateboard for kids as young as 10 that takes the marketplace by storm, until it blows up—literally.</b> Seems its Chinese manufacturer has installed lithium batteries that overheat the braking system, sometimes causing it to explode—leaving 24 kids dead and 500 injured. <b>But the bigger problem is just as sinister: the small pool of people with insider knowledge of the defect are beginning to disappear…</b><br /><br />First there’s Irving Haraldson, a company engineer who discovered the defect before release and brought it to management with a furrowed brow. <b>He was told every single battery would be replaced, release date be damned. And then he was discovered behind a Minneapolis pick-up bar with 3 bullets in his head.</b> <br /><br />Then there’s the capable albeit young corporate lawyer Lynn McDaniel, who was assigned to defend Cannon Brothers in litigation. After discovering the engineer’s memo and distributing it to her boss, Zach Evans, <b>she turns up dead in the woods en route to a 4th of July party</b> being thrown by Zach’s father-in-law: Cal Simpson. <br /><br />Zach finds himself on trial for murder, with inimitable criminal lawyer Marc Kadella in his corner—and a nagging suspicion Cal knows more than he’s let on. <br /><br />A bleak and accurate portrayal of the lewd world of financial crime, where not even children are protected from the greedy and power-hungry, <b>Insider Justice is Dennis Carstens’s most intricate murder mystery yet—a heart-racing financial thriller that reads like a delicate puzzle, and a plot that twists and turns with meticulous precision—right up to its astounding conclusion.</b><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <br />

<b>"Persuasive and brilliantly written, the book is especially timely given the rise of trillion-dollar tech companies."--<i>Publishers Weekly</i><BR><BR>From the man who coined the term "net neutrality," author of <i>The Master Switch</i> and <i>The Attention Merchants</i>, comes a warning about the dangers of excessive corporate and industrial concentration for our economic and political future.</b><BR><BR>We live in an age of extreme corporate concentration, in which global industries are controlled by just a few giant firms -- big banks, big pharma, and big tech, just to name a few. But concern over what Louis Brandeis called the "curse of bigness" can no longer remain the province of specialist lawyers and economists, for it has spilled over into policy and politics, even threatening democracy itself. History suggests that tolerance of inequality and failing to control excessive corporate power may prompt the rise of populism, nationalism, extremist politicians, and fascist regimes. In short, as Wu warns, we are in grave danger of repeating the signature errors of the twentieth century.<br /><br />In <i>The Curse of Bigness</i>, Columbia professor Tim Wu tells of how figures like Brandeis and Theodore Roosevelt first confronted the democratic threats posed by the great trusts of the Gilded Age--but the lessons of the Progressive Era were forgotten in the last 40 years. He calls for recovering the lost tenets of the trustbusting age as part of a broader revival of American progressive ideas as we confront the fallout of persistent and extreme economic inequality.

<div><b>The life of John Marshall, Founding Father and America's premier chief justice</b></div><div> </div><div><br /></div><div>In 1801, a genial and brilliant Revolutionary War veteran and politician became the fourth chief justice of the United States. He would hold the post for 34 years (still a record), expounding the Constitution he loved. Before he joined the Supreme Court, it was the weakling of the federal government, lacking in dignity and clout. After he died, it could never be ignored again. Through three decades of dramatic cases involving businessmen, scoundrels, Native Americans, and slaves, Marshall defended the federal government against unruly states, established the Supreme Court's right to rebuke Congress or the president, and unleashed the power of American commerce. For better and for worse, he made the Supreme Court a pillar of American life. </div><div><br /></div><div>In <i>John Marshall</i>, award-winning biographer Richard Brookhiser vividly chronicles America's greatest judge and the world he made.</div>
