The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of Theranos, the multibillion-dollar biotech startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end, despite pressure from its charismatic CEO and threats by her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup “unicorn” promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood testing significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at more than $9 billion, putting Holmes’s worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn’t work. In Bad Blood, John Carreyrou tells the riveting story of the biggest corporate fraud since Enron, a tale of ambition and hubris set amid the bold promises of Silicon Valley.

    Bad blood is tremendously exciting and shocking to say the least. While it’s sad and disappointing that people’s lives were being played with by the irresponsible people at Theranos, John Carreyrou’s determination to get the truth out is very reassuring. Faith in humanity restored.

  2. Sanjoy Guha (Verified Purchase)

    Book is a detailed account of the scam run under the name of the silicon valley startup – Theranos. A company which started with a good intention ended up doing all sorts of things to sell its products. Its highly gripping and a page turner.

  3. Neema rawat (Verified Purchase)

    Prompt delivery and a decent book

  4. Harvinder Singh (Verified Purchase)

    Superb book ,just hope in next versions the technology nuances could be deconstructed in a simplistic manner

  5. Umesh Thakare (Verified Purchase)

    The author spares no effort in arranging his narrative into a compelling book that highlights the rise and fall of Theranos, and how toxic workplaces are not sustainable. Recommend this to anyone who wants a taste of the dark side of Silicon Valley politics.
