This week I finished The Four, from Prof Scott Galloway, it’s a look at “The Four” (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Google). How they got to market domination, what’s maintaining them there and what that means for tech, the economy and society as a whole. It’s a good read and Galloway isn’t shy to share his observations on the negatives of having such dominant players. It’s a solid to good read but didn’t give me any earth shattering insights (possibly because I was already familiar with Galloway’s views on “The Four”), in my book that makes it 3/5 ⭐️.
