Product description

Review

I couldn’t put down this thriller with a tragic ending . . . a book so compelling that I couldn’t turn away . . . 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, '5 books I loved in 2018'

A dazzling story of deception in Silicon Valley . . . You will not be able to put this book down. ― Washington Post

Carreyrou tells the story virtually to perfection . . .
Bad Blood reads like a West Coast version of All the President’s Men. ― New York Times Book Review

Riveting . . . a blistering critique of Silicon Valley . . . The real heroes, though, are his sources: the young scientists who worked at the company and risked their reputations and careers by voicing their concerns. Were it not for their courage, Theranos might still be testing blood today -- David Crow ― Financial Times

If you’re looking for an engaging non-fiction read, look no further than
Bad Blood . . . a pacy, compelling narrative about white-collar crime that’s as incredible as any work of fiction. ― Irish Times

In this Silicon Valley drama, he opens his reporter’s notebook to deliver a tale of corporate fraud and legal browbeating
that reads like a crime thriller. -- The 10 Best Nonfiction Books of 2018 ― TIME

Gripping . . . Carreyrou presents the scientific, human, legal and social sides of the story in full . . . He unveils many dark secrets of Theranos that have not previously been laid bare. ― Nature

A parable,
with all the usual, delicious ingredients of human folly: greed, pride, vanity, lust, anger. Above all, it is an analysis of the phenomenon of hype. ― Daily Telegraph

Simply
one of the best books about a startup ever. ― Forbes

Bad Blood reveals a crucial truth: outside observers must act as the eyes, the ears and, most importantly, the voice of Silicon Valley’s blind spot . . . It gambled not with our smart phones, our attention or our democracy, but with people’s lives. ― Paste

EngagingThe Economist

A beautifully controlled narrative
that challenges the gold-rush mentality of Silicon Valley. -- Lionel Barber, Editor of the FT, 'Books of the Year 2018' ― Financial Times

[Holmes') story is
a parable about Silicon Valley delusion, but the gossipy fun comes from seeing which high-profile man (James Mattis, Joe Biden) gets drawn into Holmes’ scammy web next. -- ‘Best Books of 2018’ ― ELLE

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. -- ‘Best Books of 2018’ ― Marie Claire

You will not be able to put this down. -- Top tech book releases in 2018 ―
Evening Standard

From the Back Cover

‘Riveting . . . Compelling . . . A blistering critique of Silicon Valley’ Financial Times
‘It’s no wonder Hollywood is turning this book into a movie. I couldn’t put it down.’ Bill Gates
The riveting true story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of Theranos, the multibillion-dollar Silicon Valley biotech startup, by the prize-winning journalist who uncovered the biggest corporate fraud since Enron.
‘John Carreyrou’s comprehensive take-down of the blood-testing startup Theranos may read like the ultimate dystopian novel for the Silicon Valley age, but unfortunately, it’s all true. You will not be able to put this down.’
Evening Standard ‘Best Tech Books 2018’
‘Gripping . . . Just as Theranos was not just a tech company, its story is not just a tech story. It is a parable, with all the usual, delicious ingredients of human folly: greed, pride, vanity, lust, anger’
Daily Telegraph
‘A tale of corporate fraud and legal browbeating that reads like a crime thriller’
Time, ‘Non-fiction Book of the Year’
‘One of the most gripping reads in years . . . John Carreyrou’s book is a testimony to the power of investigative journalism, a beautifully controlled narrative that challenges the gold-rush mentality of Silicon Valley’ Lionel Barber, ‘Books of the Year’,
Financial Times
