Summary: (5/5 stars) I think I heard about this book via an interview with the author, John Carryrou, on a podcast. He’s the journalist who scooped this story for The Wall Street Journal. I decided to pick it up for two reasons. First of all, I’m fascinated by stories of such audacious frauds and that’s what Theranos is. Second, I wasn’t an investor, but as an observer, I was totally taken in by Elizabeth Holmes’ story and what Theranos claimed it was able to do and I wanted to understand it better. The real story was worse than I thought!
