in 2000/2001, even as i was reading headlines about california's energy crisis every day, on the radio, making sense of it was another thing entirely. it was happening so fast, and there was so much bullshit and spin going on, it was hard to tell what was what. jason leopold was covering energy for dow jones newswires and news junkie is his account of how the story of enron's manipulating the newly-deregulated power market in california, played out behind the scenes. you read it, you go back in time with him and are next to him in real time as he uncovers this story. greg palast says on the cover: "every journalist should read this, then quit or riot."

i'm reading it a second time and it's every bit as funny and horrifying as the first.
