I Bet Bezos Doesn’t Want You to Read This…


In this eye-opening book, accomplished entrepreneur, angel investor and thought leader Matt Ward tears the tech companies a new one, dissecting the super corporations of Silicon Valley to reveal the winners and losers and where the industry is headed.

Today’s tech monopolies are unlike anything the world has ever seen. With hundreds of billions in revenue, user bases in the billions and aggressive CEOs willing to make big bets to remain in power (and kill startups), we are entering a new era of innovation.

Yet while Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple control and ever increasing pieces of the economic pie, the world is not standing still. Each of these empires is facing existential threats in the coming years.

Who wins? Who loses? Where is the world headed?

Gods of the Valley down the businesses and big problems with GAFA, examining upcoming market trends and potential disruptions which impact today’s tech giants and rating the businesses accordingly.

Up Close and Personal with GAFA



- Who should Apple acquire?
- Does voice computing kill Google’s search business?
- Is Facebook the future of finance?
- Will Amazon kill the economy…?

These are the kinds of questions investors, economists and entrepreneurs ponder. Here is the best researched book to date on the future, what it holds, where opportunities lie and which companies will win it all.

From cryptocurrency to ecommerce, ridesharing, venture capital and voice computing to social media and streaming video, let’s look at how the Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple build infinitely more defensible business models even Trump can’t touch.

Spoiler alert: The bigger they are, the harder they fall - and one of these four is headed for a crash, you will never guess who.

This book is either: an early post-mortem or the perfect product roadmap for Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple (and any startups looking to attack them), only time will tell.
