Yeah, she's all over the news + Jennifer Lawrence is going to play her. What I do not understand (rhetorical, I do) is with all of her smarts, charm, connections--why didn't she just vet the freaking process better?
She's a charismatic, infectious big-picture person that missed a couple of key details, oops!
The people supporting her knew things were not working properly. Why didn't they speak up? (CFO questioned it-->fired)
The high-level investors, why didn't they ask more questions?
How stupid do you have to be to breathe the rarefied air in Silicon Valley?
Sorry Sam! LOL

I think that she believed it so much that she made the sham happen. Scam-a-rama that beats Bernie Maddof.

Will not read the book but maybe catch it on Redbox.

I saw a short snippet of the story on TV last night. Elizabeth Holmes has a startling resemblance to someone who worked at the same company as I did many years ago. That person was a hateful, maniulative jerk.

I have not been following this. I remember seeing an interview with her a few years ago and thinking she was young and so smart and what a great concept she had. I am sad to hear it turned out to be fraud.
