Bad Blood


I’m back!  A few pounds lighter, many hours sleep deprived, but feeling pretty good and excited to get back into the full swing of things.

Before I get to my main topic today, big thanks are owed to many of you.

  • To all my current and former colleagues for their kindness and generosity: Thank you.
  • To everyone who provided words of encouragement and support leading up to the birth of my son: Thank you.
  • To everyone who wrote a guest post while I was out: Thank you.
  • For everyone else, thank you for still reading this newsletter week after week.

Now to today’s brief topic:

When I read a great book, I like to share it with other folks who will enjoy it. I just finished John Carreyrou’s Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup. Link here.

In his book, John highlights the rise and fall of Theranos, the Silicon Valley blood testing company that was once worth about $9B.  I found it to be a well-written, detailed and a fascinating/horrifying story.

I highly recommend it.

Have a great weekend everyone!
