Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup (Small)KShs1,450.00Add to cart
The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of Theranos, the multibillion-dollar biotech startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end, despite pressure from its charismatic CEO and threats by her lawyers.
In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup “unicorn” promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood testing significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at more than $9 billion, putting Holmes’s worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn’t work.
In Bad Blood, John Carreyrou tells the riveting story of the biggest corporate fraud since Enron, a tale of ambition and hubris set amid the bold promises of Silicon Valley.
Now to be adapted into a film, with Jennifer Lawrence to star.

The psychology of money By Morgan HouselKShs2,790.00Add to cart
Doing well with money isn’t necessarily about what you know. It’s about how you behave. And behavior is hard to teach, even to really smart people.
Money―investing, personal finance, and business decisions―is typically taught as a math-based field, where data and formulas tell us exactly what to do. But in the real world people don’t make financial decisions on a spreadsheet. They make them at the dinner table, or in a meeting room, where personal history, your own unique view of the world, ego, pride, marketing, and odd incentives are scrambled together.
In The Psychology of Money, award-winning author Morgan Housel shares 19 short stories exploring the strange ways people think about money and teaches you how to make better sense of one of life’s most important topics.

Rich woman, Because i hate being told what to do;Kim KiyosakiKShs1,850.00Add to cart
Start your journey to true independence through financial education. This book is for you if you: Never want to lose sleep over money again. Want to take control of your financial future. Are tired of looking for a rich Prince Charming. Demand true independence! I wrote Rich Woman because too many women, especially as we get older, are finding ourselves in dire financial straights – due to divorce, death of a spouse, or simply no planning. The problem is so many of us have not been educated about money and investing. This book is not about how to buy car insurance or save pennies at the grocery store. I think we women are smarter than that. Rich Woman is about women taking control of our financial lives, instead of crossing our fingers hoping that someone else is looking out for our financial futures.
