Anatomy of Greed is a book by Brian Cruver detailing the Enron scandal from the author's perspective as an employee who worked for the energy giant.  In 2002 the book became the first major non-fiction work written about Enron, released by Avalon Publishing in the United States and by Random House in Europe. In 2003, CBS aired a television movie based on Cruver's book entitled The Crooked E: The Unshredded Truth About Enron starring Brian Dennehy, Christian Kane and Mike Farrell, directed by Penelope Spheeris, which was a ratings hit for the network. 
Cruver's book is written as a chronological, first-hand account of the Enron story which includes both his personal experiences working at the company as well as the experiences of several unnamed associates, including one senior executive named Mr.Blue who is quoted as saying,
We're the bad guys. We're the criminals. And don't think it's just this company. There's hundreds of Enrons out there, a thousand, cooking the books, inflating the earnings, hiding the debt, buying off the watchdogs.
