Nonfiction Winner: Bad Blood

Before listening to this book, when I heard the words Bad Blood my mind automatically went to Taylor Swift. Now, it goes to John Carreyrou. The award-winning journalist first broke the story behind Theranos, the unicorn Silicon Valley startup, and expands on his 2015 Wall Street Journal investigation in this gripping listen. Bad Blood reads like a thriller. It's filled with detailed descriptions of the secrecy and lies that made a company that seemed to be have everything—life-saving technology, a young, inspiring, and media-catnip female CEO, and a billion-dollar valuation—come crumbling down. I’m recommending this nonfiction book to everyone this year—even my never-nonfiction friends. —Laura, Audible Editor
