Summary, etc.: Business professor Scott Galloway asks fundamental questions about Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google. How did those four infiltrate our lives so completely that they're almost impossible to avoid (or boycott)? Why does the stock market forgive them for sins that would destroy other firms? And as they race to become the world's first trillion-dollar company, can anyone challenge them? Galloway deconstructs the strategies of the Four that lurk beneath their shiny veneers. He shows how they manipulate the fundamental emotional needs that have driven us since our ancestors lived in caves, at a speed and scope others cant match. And he reveals how you can apply the lessons of their ascent to your own business or career.
