Megan's suggestions for people interested in learning more about corporate fraud:
- The Enron documentary "The Smartest Guys in the Room"
- The podcast that inspired the new Hulu series on Elizabeth Holmes called "The Dropout"
- Cynthia Cooper's book "Extraordinary Circumstances" is about her experience as a corporate whistleblower
- Emily St. John Mandel's novel "The Glass Hotel" is a wonderful fictionalized account of a corporate fraud that very accurately portrays the underlying psychology of the misconduct
