Inhaltsangabe

A national best seller

"Chilling... Reads like a West Coast version of All the President's Men." (The New York Times Book Review)

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' 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.

©2018 John Carreyrou (P)2018 Random House Audio

Kritikerstimmen

"You will not want to put this riveting, masterfully reported book down. No matter how bad you think the Theranos story was, you'll learn that the reality was actually far worse." (Bethany McLean, best-selling coauthor of The Smartest Guys in the Room and All the Devils Are Here)

"Carreyrou blends lucid descriptions of Theranos’s technology and its failures with a vivid portrait of its toxic culture and its supporters’ delusional boosterism. The result is a bracing cautionary tale about visionary entrepreneurship gone very wrong." (Publishers Weekly)

"Eye-opening... The author brilliantly captures the interpersonal melodrama, hidden agendas, gross misrepresentations, nepotism, and a host of delusions and lies that further fractured the company’s reputation and halted its rise... Already slated for feature film treatment, Carreyrou’s exposé is a vivid, cinematic portrayal of serpentine Silicon Valley corruption." (Kirkus)

Great Book!!

I loved this book!! It's really interesting and one of the best Nonfiction Books I've read this year.
Carreyrou recounts what happened behind the scenes of Theranos from the very beginning. Told trough compelling stories from and about former employees.
Elizabeth Holmes is an interesting and also very strange and confusing character.. and she's certainly not the good guy in the story.
Definitely worth the read.

wow

I couldn't stop listening. so many emotions, so much hope that Justice would prevail. So much intrigue... Not even fiction could be this good.
A wonderful story, with very well built antagonist, and several protagonists, in a "Davids vs Goliath" style battle that ragged on for more than a decade.

And it's all real. It actually happened.

If you like any of Michael Lewis's books, you're simply gonna love this one.
