Inhaltsangabe

A New York Times best seller.

Winner of the Financial Times/McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2018.

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 revolutionise 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.

In Bad Blood, John Carreyrou tells the riveting story of the biggest corporate fraud since Enron, a tale of ambition and hubris set amid the bold promises of Silicon Valley.

Now to be adapted into a film, with Jennifer Lawrence to star.

Kritikerstimmen

"Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Carreyrou presents meticulously researched, clearly written evidence of the fraud perpetrated by business wunderkind Elizabeth Holmes. The former CEO of the once-renowned Silicon Valley startup, Theranos, bilked investors of millions and potentially risked the lives of patients around the world with a groundbreaking diagnostic product that did not work reliably. Will Damron is the perfect choice as narrator. His precisely articulated style makes the entire effort sound as if it is a cloak-and-dagger spy novel." (AudioFile)

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

Grossartig

Ein Krimi könnte nicht spannender sein. Wenn es erfunden wäre, würde man es für übertrieben halten, aber so...
Gerade kommt die Nachricht von Holmes Verlobung in der Presse. Bin mal gespannt wie die Gerichtliche Beurteilung ausgeht.

One of the best books I ever heard or read.

If I didn't know the story was true, i would have found it exaggerated. But it is true and it caught me from the beginning to the end.

Captivating!!

Arguably one of the most intriguing books I have read. At times during my reading, I strongly felt like punching certain characters (clearly forgetting that this was a true story that had already occurred). Who needs Netflix with books like this? Great story and I must add that the narrator nailed his performance!!

Great story, couldn‘t put it away!

I listened to this audiobook almost in one go. Once started you can‘t really stop. The story is as fascinating as it is unbelievable. The speaker is great and added positively to the lively story by creating a pleasant listening experience.
Highly recommended!
