    John Carreyrou on Theranos as Silicon Valley Cautionary Tale
    John Carreyrou
    Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist & Author
    Bethany McLean
    Journalist & Author

    The youngest self-made female billionaire in America. A partnership soaked in deceit. A Silicon Valley medical revolution left in tatters on the floor. This is the story of Elizabeth Holmes and her company Theranos, as told by John Carreyrou in the national best-seller Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup

    In a conversation with Bethany McLean, the journalist who uncovered the Enron scandal in 2001, Carreyrou will dive into the riveting story of a start-up gone off the rails as its leadership fed its insatiable desire for wealth, power, and prestige. Together, Carreyrou and McLean will explore the pitfalls of corporate greed, technological revolution, the malleability of the truth, and the capacity for journalism to speak truth to power—and bring down empires in the process.
