Holmes "wanted to help people who were scared of needles…" How about fraud? When you’ve invested millions of dollars into a product, it’s scary to discover it was a sham.

Balwani may be a snake, but I’m not buying the Holmes defense. Elizabeth ran the ship. She was the face and the voice of Theranos.

I would suggest you read the book about the Theranos story. It will tell you everything you need to know about the mindless investors, unethical management, lies, immoral and unethical attorneys, and honest folks who tried doing the right thing.
