In Bad Blood, prize-winning journalist John Carreyrou details the rapid rise and dramatic fall of bio-tech startup Theranos. Founded in 2003 by charismatic Stanford dropout Elizabeth Holmes, Theranos promised to revolutionize medical care by quickly and cheaply delivering a broad range of diagnostics from a single pinprick of blood. Investors threw money at the company, which reached a peak valuation of over $9 billion, as political luminaries stacked the company’s board. The only problem? The technology didn’t work. Carreyrou recounts his riveting story of one of the biggest scandals ever to hit Silicon Valley – a story of corporate malfeasance, failed oversight, and lax regulation.
