It reflects on the state of medicine in the world today. Such a simple idea generates a billion dollars but is worthless. Medical care, cost, quality, providing medical care to all these are the issues but we spend big bucks on a lab test that never worked. Thank you for exposing
the "Bad Blood".

Bad Blood is the best cliffhanger I’ve read in a long time! It is funny to me that the only thing E. Holmes has in common with Steve Jobs is that they both had great books written about them. One a true genius and the other a true crook!
Fast paced. Sad picture of a certain part of human nature.
As the review says. I did enjoy this book, but at times, I felt like it went around in circles or didn’t get to the point quick enough for my tastes. Still, an excellent read!
John Carreyrou did a stupendous job with this book. A dazzling tale of deception and power in Silicon Valley!
It's a thriller, a bizarre tale of deception and greed, and a hard to put down read. Totally enjoyed it.
I would hope this book is read by people realizing how dangerous this woman was to anyone using Theranos blood tests. She did not care for any other human beings besides herself. Knowing that persons invested in this company, this total sham, was one thing but to mess with people’s health was another thing. I hope that this has opened the eyes of the FDA and the sloppily work they did and how Elizabeth Holmes tricked them. It would be a shame if she does not get an extended prison sentence.

Could not put this book down! Very well written.
If you want to learn more about one of the absolute worst companies since Enron and how it managed to fool all of Silicon Valley, Murdoch, Warren Buffet, and even General Mattis to name a few, then start reading this. A gripping expose of Elizabeth Homes and the multi-billion dollar scam she spearheaded.
Definite must read. Very well written.
The author writes at high school level and is an expert in cattiness. His book, close to a romance novel - is mainly a character and personality attack on Elizabeth Holmes. ( This is so, the lab write-ups cut and pasted in the book notwithstanding.)
VC Capitalist Tim Draper is on record this week and earlier saying that “this writer ( Carreyrou ) was like a badger going after her, like a hyena going after her.”
Mr. Carreyrou, have you ever tried the dreaded private sector on your own?
Will you, Mr. Carreyrou, be horrified should we meet to learn that I change and modulate my voice depending on the audience? Or did Elizabeth’s beautiful speaking voice really get your goat, so that in defense you take ample room in your “book” to call her voice “fake.” Geez.
Consider General Petraeus, who wrote that to get ready for an important meeting he had to first “put his face on”. Absolutely.
Big thanks Tim Draper, for all you do and especially supporting Elizabeth and in that sense — all of us entrepreneurs.
Be strong Elizabeth.
The hyena only has sticks and stones. We will support you in many ways to nullify the hyenas attempt to create and influence prosecutor, judge and jury.
