I am the senior executive editor for global technology coverage at Bloomberg and the author of “Amazon Unbound: Jeff Bezos and the Invention of a Global Empire,” published in May 2021 by Simon and Schuster.
The book is a sequel to my earlier work, “The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon,” which won the Book of the Year Award in 2013 from The Financial Times and Goldman Sachs. I’m also the author of The Upstarts: Uber, Airbnb, and the Battle for the New Silicon Valley.
Over the last few years, I have authored a few dozen cover or feature stories for Bloomberg Businessweek on companies such as Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook, Yahoo, Twitter, Costco and the Chinese tech companies Didi, Baidu and Xiaomi. I joined the magazine from the New York Times, where I covered Silicon Valley from the newspaper’s San Francisco bureau. Before that, I was a reporter for the once proud magazine known as Newsweek. I am also the author of a previous work of non-fiction, Gearheads, which the San Francisco Chronicle selected as one of the best books of 2003.

Gearheads: The Turbulent Rise of Robotic Sports – 2003
The Everything Store – 2013
The Upstarts: How Uber, Airbnb, and the Killer Companies of the New Silicon Valley Are Changing the World – 2017
