Surviving with the Enron Dinosaurs: An Insider's Lighthearted Journal
The book takes a lighthearted look back at the authors journey and experiences with the Enron Dinosaurs. Tucker, an ex-Enron pipeline engineer, brings to the reader a lighter side of the events that led up to Enrons collaspe. The term "Dinosaur" was coined by upper management to describe employees who designed, maintained, and operated Enrons gas pipeline systems. It was a derogatory term which expressed old-fashioned, boring, and un-innovative for the new "non-asset" age of Enron. Ultimately, the gas pipelines and resilient Dinosaurs survived Enrons tragedy as it was found they were practically the only legitimately profitable companies owned by Enron. Although not as rich as they were during Enrons peak, the easy-going and hard working Dinosaurs are still around, living happy, and still working on those pipelines.
