This week’s recommendation has been talked about across the technology world about the fascinating saga of Theranos. In Bad Blood, Carreyrou details the organization behind the young and charismatic founder Elizabeth Holmes. It was this charisma that promised to completely upend the healthcare industry by using a single drop of blood to extrapolate vital health information.

Bad Blood is a riveting tale of Silicon Valley at its worst with lessons for anyone considering a leadership role in their organization. See Bad Blood on Amazon >
