Join Not Your Mother's Book Club for our February 2021 meeting! We will be reading and discussing: Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou. 

Per Amazon Review: ‘In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the next Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup “unicorn” promised to revolutionize the medical industry with its breakthrough device, which performed the whole range of laboratory tests from a single drop of blood. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at more than $9 billion, putting Holmes’s worth at an estimated $4.5 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn’t work. Erroneous results put patients in danger, leading to misdiagnoses and unnecessary treatments. All the while, Holmes and her partner, Sunny Balwani, worked to silence anyone who voiced misgivings—from journalists to their own employees. One of the Best Books of the Year: NPR, San Francisco Chronicle, Time, Esquire, Fortune and others.’
