Scott Galloway's insights into the impact of these four companies (Amazon, Apple, Google, and Facebook) gives us much to consider. Never has so much wealth and social impact been created by so few in such a short amount of time. Galloway takes some complex issues and boils them down into logical essays through his distinctive written style and his use of simple charts. I look forward to reading and learning more from this author.
