Summary
A National BestsellerIn 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "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 fundraising round that valued the company at more than $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When Odell meets the daughter of the owners of the shop where he works as a stock clerk in 1934, he knows he has found his future. Joyce has a good job at a respected school for African American children, and he enjoys spending time with her. After they marry, he becomes manager of her parents' store, but Joyce cannot sustain a pregnancy. Odell secretly meets a young beauty, has three children with her, and justifies his embezzling from the store as necessary to support them. When Yvonne and Milton move in next door, Joyce and Odell enjoy going to their speakeasy, though something seems off. When Milton sees Odell with his other family, Odell knows his instincts were correct about the man who is now blackmailing him. This launches Monroe's (Never Trust a Stranger, 2017) Neighbors series, and she reveals sympathetic aspects and complex motivations for each character in this engrossing setting. Joyce, in particular, is fascinating in her love for her husband, tempered by what seems like a growing willingness to investigate his absences.--Alessio, Amy Copyright 2018 Booklist"
