  • Fascinating and disturbing

    I don't finish a lot of books, but this one is a real page-turner - kind of a thriller where the stakes for some people were potentially their careers or life savings. The author was the journalist who broke the story about Theranos' massive fraud. Foremost, this book gives you an idea of what it must have been like to work for Theranos from first-hand accounts of former employees. They found themselves working for a company which lied to its investors and business partners and which put patients at risk. As the ones who were most familiar with the violations and lies that the company was engaged in, Theranos ruthlessly harassed employees when they could no longer stomach what was going on and left the company. As a result, the way in which the truth finally got out turned out to be one of the more interesting aspects of this story. The collection of high flying executives, politicians, wealthy elites, and even a four star general who were made to look like fools is incredible. The degree to which critics were sidelined by Theranos, its board, and at least one of its business partners is shocking. The stories of individuals who stepped forward at great personal risk to themselves is scary and inspiring. The main content is contained within the first 80% of the book. The remainder is composed of extensive end notes. Highly recommended. Having read the book, I am looking forward to the movie when it comes out.

  • Loved it

    Really loved it, fascinating read. Even though english is not my first language, it was easy to digest and if not for the day to day obligations I think I would have gone through it in one sitting, it was that good. I see it as a warning that nobody is immune to a good sales pitch from a really charismatic person.

  • Bad Blood

    Couldn’t put this down! As someone who has worked in a hospital laboratory for over 35 years, I was fascinated with this story and how Elizabeth Holmes was able to get away with what she did. Story is so well written. Would recommend to anyone.

  • Great read on this scandal....

    The book is an easy read that was hard to put down until I was finished. What a great piece of journalism. Meticulously fact checked with credible sources makes this so enjoyable to read in that you know this is all true.

    Thanks for your feedback!
