One of the few books which I could not put down once I started reading. Five stars from me for the narrative, exposing the truth and the technical details.I picked this book as it stood as an intersection of a major corporate scandal exposed in a thrilling way. I started reading it and finished it in less than 6 days . The book highlights how important it is to stick to integrity, have the highest work ethics and be honest in everything which you do especially when you deal with patients and healthcare. Ian gibbons, Tyler Schultz and Alan Beam all stand as a testimony to do the right thing no matter in what situation you are in.John tried his best to provide both sides of the story which makes this book all the more grounded in reality
There is so much more information in this book that can’t be found anywhere else.
The experienced author knew when the company line wax disingenuous. He found others reputable sources to develop the truth. It was a page turner hat will keep you attention.
Because of this book, I am now reading again.
This book is amazing. The investigative effort uncovering fraud and deception sheds light on how to not perform under pressure and deadlines (Elizabeth Holmes should be permanently exiled from organizational leadership).
Alternatively, John Carreyrou demonstrates how to ethically perform under pressure, quarterbacking a cross-functional effort that educates, entertains, and delights.
Thank you very, very much.
A fascinating account of the rise and fall of a company with cutting edge technology that was too good to be true.
Seriously could not put this book down for two straight days. While at times it can be a little confusing keeping straight all the various individuals at play in this sprawling real-life conspiracy, it is so satisfying to see how it all plays out. Genuinely shocking and TRUE story that I’d somehow never heard of...highly recommended if you’re a non-fiction or even a true crime fan...it seems like every detail is present in this account.
A wonderfully told true tale of megalomania and greed. The author did a great job in having the book read like a thriller. He’s also a great writer. I wish, though, there were more on Holmes’s psychology. While I appreciate Carreyou saying he’s not a psychologist, his consulting some experts on this sort of behavior would have strengthened what we readers take away from the immoral behavior of Holmes and company.
Wow! Every letter was so captivating that I found it difficult to let go while I worked. Thank you carryrou.
I read this and I absolutely love it I totally recommend this
The title is antidisestablishmentarianism and its android app is the antidisestablishmentarianism way to much antidisestablishmentarianism
The story of how an alluring and smart young narcissistic woman sociopath Elizabeth Holmes spun a personality cult around her concept of the ideal product that performed blood diagnostic medicine and how the rich and famous one by one fell to her allure to her spell by investing hundreds of millions of dollars on a company that never had a worthy technology capable of delivering on the wild and delusional dreams that were spun to them. No one with a serious medical or technical investing background ever performed any due diligence on the Compnay’s technology and secretly guarded product behind Theranos. If they had, this massive fraud would have been laid bare many years before the Wall Street Journal reporter in New York would have had to be the sleuth to slay the the lies that had by then snowballed into colossal proportions.
They may have chanted something else but millions who were somehow affected by this scandal and everyone who enjoyed this great book chants “Thank You Carryrou"
