Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup

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.A 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: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup Reviews

  • Andrew Garvin

    Early in my career I worked at a next-generation sequencing startup with Theranos-level ambitions. In fact, it went further. The founders’ mission was to cure aging. Literally, the goal was immortality.

    There were other similarities: The company was founded by wunderkinds, they won the attention and support of a prominent professor in the field, they dropped out and raised millions of dollars from non-hard tech investors off the back of a concept, then tens of millions of dollars off the back of

    Should be mandatory B-School reading

    I read this book in one day. I had read some articles and/or saw TV shows on Theranos and Elizabeth Holmes, but my knowledge was pretty general. Once I started the book, I could not put it down. I canceled lunch with a friend so I could continue reading. I ordered pizza for the family so I could continue reading. The story is interesting and shocking. It is a story that every Board should read because ultimately it failed in its oversight responsibilities - wh

    While pretty much everyone in this book who is rich and powerful comes off looking bad, it is less a tale of typical fraud, like a Ponzi scheme, and more a tale of human foibles. These were expertly played on by Elizabeth Holmes, a very young woman of little productive talent and no particular evident intelligence, but with a natural gift for sales and embodying the icy manipulative abilities of the sociopath. Fascinating stuff, all of it, and worth reading just to make sure that you don’t fall ...more

    I’d give this 3.5 stars. Great book and amazing what Elizabeth got away with! Scary in that sense. There were a lot of people in this one so at times I found it a little tough to keep them all straight.

    "The resignations infuriated Elizabeth and Sunny. The following day, they summoned the staff for an all-hands meeting in the cafeteria. Copies of The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho had been placed on every chair. Elizabeth told the gathered employees that she was building a religion. If there was anyone not prepared to show complete devotion and unmitigated loyalty to the company they should “get the fuck out.”

    Książka wciągnęła mnie od pierwszego akapitu. Do tego stopnia, że odrzuciłem na bok wszystkie inne książki i szukałem momentów, aby założyć słuchawki i mieć jeszcze chwilę epickiej walki autora i byłych pracowników Theranosa z Elisabeth Holmes i jej popleczników.

    Czyta/słucha się to jak dobry kryminalno-prawniczy thiller. Autor ma świetne pióro - w mojej ocenie zachował swoją dziennikarską obiektywność będą przy tym w środku całego zamieszania.

    Mimo tego, że wszystkie opisane w książce wydarzenia

    How overly dramatic and sensationalist. Was Holmes a total fraud? Yup. But did she masterfully dupe everyone with her lies and cunning? I'm not so convinced. All those early investors and her workers and partners had dollar signs in their eyes too. And silicon valley is a place where the business model is to just fake it til you become a unicorn and then deliver your product. Or don't. I mean, if John Carreyrou had done this sort of deep investigative reporting on literally any crypto founder or ...more

    Bad Blood takes us through the journey of a Silicon Valley bio tech start up, Theranos . It’s one where a start up after creating tremendous hype about saving lives ended up going up in smokes due to fraud and misrepresentation. I have always been piqued by corporate fraud stories . I read about Enron much after it happened . With Theranos , as I was reading through the book, I remembered many incidents and the different articles I had read on fortune , Forbes and New Yorker and lived through th ...more
