ENRON: Just When You Thought You Knew the Truth
Former Member of Enron's Executive Committee Shares from the Inside
 
For the first time, an Enron insider is speaking out with what really happened within the company walls. Former Enron Executive Vice President of Human Resources and Community Relations and author, Cindy Kay Olson, shares both the keys to many of Enron's successes while revealing details of the scandal from her point of view in her book releasing nationwide, titled, "The Whole Truth…So Help Me God---An Enlightened Testimony from Inside Enron's Executive Offices."

Amidst 23 years of working for Enron, Olson's brilliant HR innovations catapulted the company to the forefront in the industry as one of Fortune's "100 Best Companies to Work for in America" providing employees with top of the line benefits and work life innovations. Over the years she was promoted several times, eventually making her way to the executive committee, working alongside top echelon executives Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling.

Published by Tate Publishing & Enterprises, Olson shares who she believes was guilty of what during the scandal that brought her Enron career to a halt in 2001. While she has since found herself in the public eye as the first executive committee member to testify about the scandal before the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives Olson has seen the uprising and downfall of this Fortune 50 organization from near beginning to finish.

"After countless books, articles and two movies, the world is pretty sure they already know everything there is to know about Enron and its executives," Olson says. "But not so fast!" Many people, for example, are unaware that most Enron convictions have been overturned and Jeff Skilling's appeal is now being considered by the fifth circuit court.

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.

Though never found guilty, Olson and other members of the Enron hierarchy settled a civil suit in 2004. Her finances are still under investigation today.

This summer, "The Whole Truth, So Help Me God" will be available at any bookstore nationwide or can be ordered through the publisher at orders@tatepublishing.com or by visiting barnesandnoble.com, amazon.com or target.com. Audio versions of the book are also available.

Olson currently resides on a small acreage near Aspen, Colorado, with her husband, Grady, and their four dogs.
