I love when a book is narrated by the author. One gets the emphasis and emotions they were hoping to portray through the words. A very relatable book.

In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose start-up “unicorn” promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood testing significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fund-raising round that valued the company at more than $9 billion, putting Holmes’ worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn’t work.

I am not a non-fiction reader AT ALL and only chose this book because of my foolish habit of judging books by their covers/names. The name of this book put me in mind of the HBO show Big Little Lies, which I really enjoyed.
This book does not disappoint. It is dripping with juicy drama, secrets and lies. To think it actually happened is unbelievable. In the book it mentiones a few times how surprised people were of Elizabeths Holmes voice. They were not kidding.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish.
