One of the best real-life based, suspenseful, nail biting thriller that I’ve listened to in a while! I couldn’t stop till I got to the end. The book shows the dark side of ambition. When your goal consumes you to such an extent that you stop bothering about the means to achieve it, the decisions you take can harm someone else. And in this story the medical technology touched the lives of so many people and would have impacted many more if this charade had continued for long. It’s interesting to note the ways by which some very influential and powerful people were manipulated for so many years, by a few.

Hats off to the investigative journalism by John Carreyrou that brought this shocking tale to light! We should appreciate the grit and resolve of the author and the management at the journal who didn’t succumb to the pressure from various quarters. Excellent narration by Will Damron. A must listen for anyone who is interested in technology and business!

From the creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, comes a powerful and awe-inspiring book! Loved the way she has written the book. The narration by the author is another great aspect of this audible! A must listen for those who love these shows and for anyone who would like to hear the struggles that even celebrities go through to find their inner strength and resilience. Inspiring!

A book purchased with lot of expectations. Story started well and author was able to build intrigue about the characters pasts. However, the story lost focus in the middle and then came crashing down. What was well detailed scenes became dragging beyond a point. Somehow skipped to the finish, to know how the story ends. Disappointed with the way it ended. A really long book which leaves you unsatisfied at the end.

Captivating!

A heart warming book! Perfect and complete the way it is, with a moving testimonial as epilogue by the authors’s wife. Excellent narration by Sunil Malhotra and Cassandra Campbell which beautifully reflects the emotions and mood of the author. A must listen audible book!
