In an earlier post, "Great Reviews for Blogging Enron", we listed excerpts from a few reviews of Blogging Enron from other authors with successful books of their own. Here are excerpts from a few additional reviews from an assortment of readers:
"Stunning!!! (5 stars)
The ordeal that these young men faced when opposing the Federal Government leaves one to wonder just how corrupt our judicial system has become. I followed the trials closely but this book reveals a great deal more than any of the media outlets ever covered. How can any individual regardless of their wealth take on the Feds who have an unlimited amount of resources and ever expect to come away unscathed? I found this book very revealing and it made me wonder how any private citizen can ever get a fair trial against our government when there are political ramifications driving the process. Great book, highly recommended."
"An Intimate and Accurate View (5 stars)
Speaking as someone who is very familiar with the people, former business practices, court proceedings and evidence regarding the Enron Broadband case, I am relieved that Ms. Ellison's compiled blogs shine the light of day on the devastating impact of these circumstances on many talented and capable human beings. To those interested in delving beneath the easy bait of newspaper headlines to reveal the complexities and personal perspectives of these gentlemen, this brief volume is certainly worth your time. See it also as a cautionary tale for those interested in developing technologies that will be financed through public markets - the crowd is fickle."
"Well done! (5 stars)
Thanks for helping the public know the truth. Enron Broadband Services (EBS) created and demonstrated the effective and meaningful use of streaming and other technologies that the world now takes for granted. EBS created the Enron Intelligent Network and it worked. I hope more persons can read this important story and begin to understand that there were many innocent and very creative people at Enron."
"Fascinating! (5 stars)
I followed Cara's blog during the EBS trial because of my personal interest in the impact of these indictments on some innocent, hard-working individuals. The book provides the background and details that are needed to tell a complete story of the persistence and integrity required of those who believe in truth when confronted with the disturbing abusive power of government. I highly recommend it!"
Thanks to all the readers of Blogging Enron: The Enron Broadband Story for your wonderful feedback and for helping Cara Ellison's book get off to such a great start!
