I knew a little bit about the Theranos story before starting into this book but it was very little. It was a fascinating read. Watching how manipulative and threatening the company was to individuals was quite disconcerting. To see what a company can do when it has the money and has a sociopath like Elizabeth Holmes and a narcissist like Sunny Balwani running it is quite scary. It was sad to see what employees, other companies and patients went through at their diabolical hands. I do think that the booked bogged down for me in the middle. I was tired of reading the same thing happening over and over again... people being duped or fired. I was waiting for someone to wake up. When it finally did, the book started getting exciting again. Was glad to be more educated on this subject. I did not know that it was so involved. It is also upsetting to see that years after this book was published, court delays are still happening in the case against Holmes.
