Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 June 2019
The core of this tragic story is quite straight forward, and has sadly been witnessed in many variants in financial markets over time. Yet there is such an ridiculousness about some events in this story that you wouldn’t be able to make it up as fiction.

If you weren’t aware you’ll see how Silicon Valley provides the perfect breeding ground for a combination of hubris, absence of ethics and a gold-rush-blindness. It’s about a start-up company and its rock–star founder/CEO that has developed supposedly easier and faster blood tests, potentially revolutionizing the medical world. Well-known, high-profile investors lined up to back the company and helped to secure a market cap of $9 bln at its IPO. . If you are not familiar with the actual events, I will try not to spoil the story. But there was an issue with the entire proposition, a big one.. And it’s fascinating how the CEO, with her Steve Jobs-Syndrome, manged to pull rational and experienced people into her cult.

So ultimately it’s another disturbing case about how regulators, investors, staff and sadly patients were all misled through bogus claims and plain fraud with quality standards. The latter part of the book deals with the subsequent threats, lawsuits after the author, a Wall Street Journal journalist that obviously portrays himself in clever light, exposed all this.

As a professional investor it’s the type of book that will entertain you on a not-too lengthy flight. But it also serves as a reminder not to close your eyes to the pitfalls and red flags when investing in companies. A lack of oversight and serious governance issues lie at the heart of this drama; the well-respected board of the company included no-one with experience the medical field to properly assess what the company was actually trying to achieve..
