Product Details

Praise

“A great and at times almost unbelievable story. . . . Theranos may be the biggest case of corporate fraud since Enron.” New York

“Chilling. . . . Reads like a thriller. . . . Carreyrou tells [the Theranos story] virtually to perfection.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Gripping. . . .  Riveting. . . .  [Told] with a momentum worthy of a crime novel.” —Los Angeles Review of Books

“Riveting. . . . For all its boomtime feel, there are timeless aspects to Theranos’ story. Venality is age-old, but so is courage, and that of the ex-employees who blew the whistle on its deceptions is restorative. . . . And more than an honorable mention should go to Carreyrou, a dogged old-school reporter uncowed by Theranos’ legal hardball.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Engrossing. . . . Hard to put down. . . . Boasts movie-scene detail. . . . Theranos employees are the story’s heroes, with the force of journalism not far behind.” —Science

“A veritable page-turning. . . . Gripping. . . . Presents comprehensive evidence of the fraud perpetrated by Theranos chief executive Elizabeth Holmes… Unveils many dark secrets of Theranos that have not previously been laid bare.” —Nature

“This is a ‘stay up all night to read’ book that is just as propulsive, shocking, and riveting as the best thriller novels.” —Bustle

“I found myself unable to put it down once I started. This book has everything: elaborate scams, corporate intrigue, magazine cover stories, ruined family relationships, and the demise of a company once valued at nearly $10 billion.” —Bill Gates, “Five Books I Loved in 2018”

“Riveting. . . . Compelling. . . . [Carreyrou’s] unmasking of Theranos is a tale of David and Goliath.” —Financial Times

“A fascinating true story that reads like a suspense novel. . . . A telling parable of Silicon Valley magical thinking.” —Selby Drummond, Vogue
 
“In Bad Blood, Carreyrou tells the full, gripping tale of how he slayed the ‘unicorn’ in a fascinating look at how buzz and billions can blind people to facts.”Marie Claire
 
“This is a ‘stay up all night to read’ book that is just as propulsive, shocking, and riveting as the best thriller novels.” Bustle

“A parable about Silicon Valley delusion. . . . Gossipy fun comes from seeing which high-profile man (James Mattis, Joe Biden) gets drawn into Holmes’ scammy web next.” Elle

“A thorough and devastating piece of reporting that deserves a place alongside the masterworks of the inside-the-boardroom business genre. . . . He quietly compiles detail after damning detail into a fascinating narrative.” The Weekly Standard

“Masterfully reported.” —Bethany McLean, bestselling coauthor of All the Devils Are Here
