#5: Bad Blood
Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup

“Theranos was a startup that set itself apart from the bevy of others in Silicon Valley.

There was only one problem: the technology didn't exist. Painstakingly researched but still accessible to the medical layman, Pulitzer prize-winning journalist John Carreyrou investigates the meteoric rise and fall of Theranos, exploring how the company managed to fool the public, investors, board members like George Schultz and Henry Kissinger, and even Barack Obama.
