Finally finished this audiobook and can stop angry yelling at my phone 😂

This story was so bonkers. And I can‘t believe they were able to stay in business and get away with everything for so long! Talk about a psychopath. I‘m glad they were discovered before hopefully anything to fatal happened. Sometimes truth is crazier than fiction!

janeycanuck Check out the podcast The Dropout, if you want to continue to yell at your phone. 2w

I know I‘m late to the game in reading this book, but I‘m literally sitting there yelling at my phone!! How was this a business for 15 years!! Why was it not caught sooner?! What a toxic work environment. Why did people keep working there?!

I‘m 59% in and I‘m super curious if this is the reason a bunch of Walgreens had to close.

What a impressive scam artist that conned so many (including Henry Kissinger and George Schultz). She started this scam company at age 19, and people invested millions of dollars. She claimed that with her invention, multiple blood tests 💉 could be done with one drop of blood 🩸. She and the president of Theranos are going to trial this year and face 20 years in prison. Slow at times, but it revs up when the truth is discovered. 3/5🩸s

This book is shocking. And the fact that Holmes was able to keep up the whole charade for so long is even crazier. Carreyrou has done a great job writing the book and reporting the whole scam. i still can't believe she was able to pull this off for so long. Also her TedMed speech is just comedy now.

Blaire Fully agree. One of my favorites from last year. 1mo

Like most people, Greg had been taken aback by Elizabeth's deep voice when he'd first met her.... When Greg thought about it, there was a certain logic to her act: Silicon Valley was overwhelmingly a man's world. The VCs were all male and he couldn't think of any prominent female startup founder. At some point, she must have decided the deep voice was necessary to get people's attention and be taken seriously.

Another book down for #booked2020. I decided to use this one for #liveandlearn since pretty much every aspect of this was foreign to me—silicone valley, startups, shareholders, not to mention the medical technology of drawing blood. In fact, I wouldn‘t have even read this book if it weren‘t for #newyearwhodis because I would have thought the subject matter just wasn‘t for me. But what a wild ride it was! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Elizabeth Holmes is a real piece of work. I had to stop listening to look up an interview, since the book references her deep voice.

All I can say is wow, watching her speak about something that is now clearly a sham is wild! And she looks just like the psychopath she is—the big eyes and way she speaks without opening her mouth adds to the overall image. #newyearwhodis

Reviewsbylola It‘s so good. It‘s shocking how many people bought into on just her word alone. There really wasn‘t much to back it up, and I would think if I were a physician, I would have been skeptical of the claims that a battery of tests could be performed from just a finger prick. Then again I know nothing and would have bought into had I heard about it when they were emerging. 🤣 @Lauram 2mo

One of the best books I have ever written. Dealing with the medical startup, Theranos, which claimed to offer portal blood tests analyses of using a few drops of a patient‘s blood but was found out to be a giant fraud. Like mystery novel and brilliantly written. Must read.

My #bestof2019.

I had a weird reading year. I had bouts of reading malaise. I fell off the Litsy bandwagon and I don‘t why. I stopped puzzling (which means no audio-puzzling). I couldn‘t get into any audio by the end of the year. I basically spent about 70% of my year hopefully one-clicking romance. I did find some great new romance authors (a topic for a different post). And I missed my GR mini-stretch goal by 5 (100/105) and I‘m ok with that!

Founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes ran Theranos like a cult. I‘m not sure if she‘s a sociopath or just deeply delusional. Her technology that was to allow dozens of lab tests to be analyzed from a few drops of blood never worked. Employees who acknowledged this were either fired or told they didn‘t know what they were doing. Holmes, who will go on trial in 2020, seems remorseless. Excellent investigative journalism.

A gripping story of Elizabeth Holmes fraud and the people impacted directly. However I was irked by the authors use of "describe physical appearance", but this person was really smart.

It's as if people who aren't perfectly attractive and put together can't be assumed to be intelligent in his mind.

It reads like fiction, but it's not. This book covers the absorbing, unbelievable story of Elizabeth Holmes and her fraudulent "revolutionary" lab company, Theranos, told by the investigative journalist who broke the story. The potential impact to patients' health is horrifying, as Holmes touted lab tests that gave massively inaccurate results. Yet she pulled the wool over the eyes of many intelligent, prominent people.

Highly recommended.

Expanding on his exposé of Theranos, Carreyrou briefly details Elizabeth Holmes' background and her founding of Theranos. The sketchy details that mar the beginning of this endeavor are presented as they develop, and it makes this story even more astounding/horrifying. This book is very readable despite the science behind it (or science allegedly behind it). Carreyrou makes real and human the people who were chewed up and spit out by Theranos.

What a wild story! This is a nonfiction account of the rise & fall of Theranos and it‘s going CEO Elizabeth Holmes. From their false claims of successful blood testing with a single finger prick, to her faked deep voice, to the insane working conditions, constant employee turnover, threats, and lawsuits, it‘s almost unbelievable that this company was able to swindle investors out of billions of dollars. It‘s well written and fascinating.

I was predisposed to enjoy this one and it was everything I had hoped for. I knew this story from listening to a podcast called “The Dropout”. However to read the story told in all its excruciating detail from the WSJ investigative reporter John Carreyrou was still riveting. Just walk away Walgreens ! I cannot wait for the film version.

At first, I was a little put off by the author (male) and every interviewee (mostly male) about their perspective of Elizabeth Holmes and the events surrounding Theranos in Bad Blood. However, it became pretty clear that she was the problem. There might've been some biases and sexism, but that had nothing to do with her decisions and deceit. ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

This engaged me and kept me awake during a nasty virus that had me off work and I‘m very grateful for that! It was exactly what I needed - exciting enough to be easy but meaty enough that I felt I was doing something with my time. I knew a bit about this before (quite late to the party reading it) but this story is WILD. Loses a few points for the writing style not being totally me (too journalistic for a long book?) but absolutely a great book
