Book Review-Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup

I saw this on Bill Gate’s Goodreads list, and then I started seeing it everywhere.

In a nutshell, a woman named Elizabeth Holmes starts a company called Theranos which she says (with no evidence whatsoever) can detect thousands of diseases with only a drop of blood. Lots and lots of people give her millions of dollars, and it is all a scam.

It’s true and beyond that plausible, because some people have more money than sense. I think once you get into the gazillion dollar bank balance set, you must be willing to take more risks cause these people should have known better but apparently, were taken with her weird husky hypnotic voice. Seriously, click the link and listen. I’d recommend this book from your library, as it is not a re-read candidate in my eyes.
