Struggling to think of good Christmas presents for the people who ‘don’t mind’ or ‘don’t want anything’ 🙄? Look no further – this is the perfect present and the greatest read for anyone who likes scandal, science, Silicon Valley, justice and excellent journalism.
John Carreyrou, an epic journalist from the Wall Street Journal, broke the insane story of Elizabeth Holmes and her company Theranos who’s data and products were almost entirely bogus despite being valued at $9 billion! After breaking the story and writing several follow up articles, Carreyrou wrote this fantastic book completing the whole story of Holmes and her incredible manipulation of investors, data and employees.
Elizabeth Holmes is a Stanford dropout who had a billion dollar idea to create machines that can produce several blood tests from one finger pin prick. The book follows the journey of Holmes and her rapidly growing company Theranos.
It is gripping and thrilling and truly mind blowing at moments – it is often hard to believe this is not only a true story but a very recent true story.
A must read and as I said, the perfect present ❤️📚 @johncarreyrou @wsj @financialtimes
