Fortunately, this is not a novel about boring cliches and a rehash of Enron. There are more than a few startling plot twists, that really keep you on the edge. I agree with the other reviewers, reading this book really puts a face to certain players in the modern business scandal turning regular notions about who is the good guy and who is the bad guy upside down. It provokes you to think about how you would react given the situation. Highly recommended not-too-heavy reading (from an auditor who would normally not want to spend his evenings off reading about four accountants who walk into a bar)!
This is a good story for any reader, but I would especially recommend it for accounting or business students because it provides another perspective on some of the topics that can be pretty dry in the academic setting. It also puts a human face on the issue of white collar crime.
