Cindy Olson was the Executive Vice President of Human Resources and Community Relations and a member of Enron's executive committee at the time of the company's bankruptcy. As the first member of Enron's executive committee to tesify before the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives about Enron back in 2002, Cindy Olson knows exactly what it is like to be thrust into the public spotlight, and she has experienced the political aspect of the Enron prosecutions first-hand.
Check out the press release that accompanied the initial release of The Whole Truth. Included in that press release is this description of the book's contents:
"Olson sheds new light on the countless half-truths purveyed by the media and the justice system. Also, as a member of Enron's 401(k) administrative committee, she reveals the tenuous conversations and dubious actions that transpired during the company's plight. After being a protégé and confidant of Ken Lay for many years, Olson describes their relationship and what he was really like behind closed doors. She was subpoenaed for her answer to the question, "Should I invest all of my 401(k) in Enron stock?" at a 1999 Enron employee meeting and received attention for deferring Sherron Watkins' letter of accusations to Ken Lay."
Cindy Olson has continued to speak out publicly about Enron, one of the few prominent Enron executives to do so. Cindy Olson's The Whole Truth is a great complement to Cara Ellison, Blogging Enron: The Enron Broadband Story. Both are available at Amazon.
