About the Author:
John Carreyrou is a member of the Wall Street Journal's investigative reporting team. He joined the Journal in 1999 and has been based in Brussels, Paris, and New York for the paper. John has covered a number of topics during his career, ranging from Islamist terrorism when he was on assignment in Europe to the pharmaceutical industry and the US healthcare system. His reporting on corruption in the field of spine surgery led to long prison terms for a California hospital owner and a Michigan neurosurgeon. His reporting on Theranos was recognized with a George Polk Award. Born in New York and raised in Paris, he currently resides in Brooklyn with his wife and three children.
Bad Blood reveals a crucial truth: outside observers must act as the eyes, the ears and, most importantly, the voice of Silicon Valley's blind spot. Exaggerated promises, insular corporate cult culture and benevolent media coverage have allowed a monster to grow in the Valley. With Theranos, it gambled not with our smart phones, our attention or our democracy, but with people's lives. * Paste * Gripping . . .
