For those of you not familiar with the story of Theranos, here’s a gist:

Elizabeth Holmes, a brilliant Stanford dropout, founded the company with the unicorn promise of giving a complete picture of your health using only a small amount of blood.

She gave popular TED talks and appeared on the covers of Fortune and Forbes.

In 2013, Theranos was valued at $10 billion. The catch? The technology was a scam.

The book “Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup” by John Carreyrou, gives an insane inside take on the complete story and collapse of the multi-billion dollar startup.

The author broke the story as a reporter at the Wall Street Journal. Since he played a key role in exposing the company, his inside look makes for a remarkable read.
