The following are various chronological reports about Enron.  Enron was the darling of Wall Street.  I have studied Enron for years and have always wanted to maintain a collection of information.  I would highly recommend two books on Enron.  One “Conspiracy of Fools: A True Story,” and the other “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room.”
