Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou

The story of the now well-known Silicon Valley scam. Written by the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who broke the story and pursued it till the end, the book is a page-turner and an inside look at the sort of moral depravity that exists in all industries but is sort of protected and even incubated in the high-tech world these days – the world where wealth is created not by creating profits that stem from selling desired products and services, but by creating stories about future profits that are sold to the media and to investors.
