Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The New York Times best-selling author of The Four and NYU Business School professor delivers an insightful, urgent analysis of who stands to win and who's at risk to lose in a post-pandemic world.

The Covid-19 outbreak has turned bedrooms into offices, pitted young against old and widened the gaps between rich and poor, red and blue, the mask-wearers and the mask-haters. Some businesses, like Amazon and video conference software maker Zoom, woke up to find themselves crushed under an avalanche of consumer demand. Others, like the restaurant, travel, hospitality and live entertainment industries, scrambled to not become instantly obsolete. But the pandemic has not been a change agent so much as an accelerant of trends that were already well underway. 

In Post Corona, Galloway outlines the contours of both crisis and opportunity that lie ahead. While the powerful tech monopolies will thrive in the disruption other businesses, like higher education, will struggle to maintain a value proposition that no longer makes sense when we can't stand shoulder to shoulder. Combining his signature humour and brash style with razor-sharp business insights, Galloway offers both warning and hope in equal measure.

Makes you angry and that’s a good thing.

Scott Galloway’s post corona is a compelling read and listen. It really takes swipe at all that’s wrong with our capitalist system which is broken. He paints a vivid dichotomy of the haves (shareholder class) and the have nots those not lucky enough by birth or by luck to excel in “the land of opportunity”. It makes you mad, angry and sad, knowing that during the worst global pandemic in over 100 years inequality is more rife than ever. Those at the frontline, the real heroes of the fight, are most often the poorest paid, the immigrants, the marginalised, those at the fringes. While the rich just get richer, insulated from the pandemic in their 10 bed mansions and their obscene wealth. This book just shows how much the system is rigged. Socialism has got a unfairly bad rep but it’s a far fairer and more equitable system. I quite enjoyed the bit about college education and how it’s become a sort of a caste system. I highly recommend this book. And hopefully it inspires readers and listeners to agitate for a fairer and better society For all Post Corona.

Little content mostly a bias socialist view

Some good points in the book, however the book is really bias towards a socialist perspective and out of touch with a lot of modern developments.

Accelerating trends is key message

It's not that it's not a good book - it's just not a great book because the message is that the most likely scenario is that current trends will accelerate. Hence while this is reassuring - you come away with the feeling that you haven't read much that is new.

Check your bias

For someone who seeks to educate this author needs to check his bias; I only heard anger and stereotypes in the chapters I listened to and I am thoroughly disappointed as I had hoped to learn instead.

Not about the post corona new order

It’s ok, everything it says is reasonable, but it doesn’t add any new information about the disruption the covid is still causing.
