About the Author
Lynn Brewer is a former Enron executive. 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, and Competitive Intelligence for Enron Broadband Services. During her tenure she witnessed numerous instances of illegal and corrupt dealings, including bank fraud, espionage, power price manipulation and the gross overstatements to the press, public and financial world. Prior to joining the energy giant, Lynn worked in forensic accounting and spent 18 years as a legal professional in private practice, until she joined Ralston Purina where she worked in Corporate Development for the General Counsel and Chief Financial Officer. Since leaving Enron, Lynn has become an internationally recognized speaker on the subject of corporate integrity, addressing audiences in South Africa, New Zealand, India, Canada, Venezuela, and the New York Stock Exchange. She provides compelling details into Enron''s rise and fall, leaving audiences shocked when they realize how vulnerable they are to becoming the next Enron. She is the Founder and President of The Integrity Institute, Inc., which independently assesses and certifies corporate integrity at the request of organizations for the benefit of their stakeholders. She holds a Certificate in Business Ethics from Colorado State University and serves on the steering committee for the Open Compliance and Ethics Group. In 2003, she was nominated for the Women of Influence Award and in 2004, she was named a Paul Harris Fellow by The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International. Lynn is also the author of SportsVision: Athletic Excellence through Visualization, (foreword by Lou Holtz and Mike Ditka), based upon her 15 years as a competitive and professional figure skater, as well as a coach.
Matthew Scott Hansen is the co-author of the bestseller Andy Kaufman Revealed. Matt, his wife Stephanie, their two dogs and four cats live in Southern Califo

This book could be a great "what NOT to do" book on integrity, and it can certainly spawn interesting conversations in a HS or college Ethics class, but I recommend you get it from the library so as not to pad Brewer's pockets any more.
I'm just wondering what lesson should we take from her book? For me the main lesson is, people will do everything to get famous and rich. Even by fooling others and taking credit of someone's accomplishment.
So, don't be fooled by this book and the author. The true Enron Whistleblower is not her. All of the stories in this book are fiction.
