Brad Stone is a senior writer for Bloomberg Businessweek. Over the last few years, he’s authored over a dozen cover stories on companies such as Apple, Google, Amazon, Yahoo, Twitter, Facebook and the Chinese search firm Baidu. When he’s not attempting to deconstruct the high-tech firms charting our future, he has written about beleaguered domestic airlines, weaponized drone warplanes, the retail giant Costco and traced the deceptions of an international con-artist and alleged murderer.
Brad joined Businessweek from the New York Times, where he had been a reporter since 2006. He covered Internet trends, as well as Silicon Valley’s biggest companies from the newspaper’s San Francisco bureau. In addition to writing for the paper, he wrote a weekly column, Ping, and was a founding writer of the paper’s technology blog, Bits. From 1998 to 2006, Brad served as the Silicon Valley Correspondent for Newsweek magazine, writing for the technology and business sections of the magazine and authoring a regular online column.
Brad is also the author of one previous work of non-fiction, "Gearheads: the Turbulent Rise of Robotic Sports." The book was a BookSense 76 pick and the San Francisco Chronicle selected it as one of the best books of 2003. It covers the emergence of what was then the new breed of robot hobbyists and hardware hackers.
In 2007, Brad published a story in The New York Times exposing Forbes editor Daniel Lyons as "Fake Steve Jobs," the author of "The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs." He wrote in Business Week about his interactions with Frenchman Alexandre Despallieres, an alleged conman with suspected ties to the death of music executive Peter Ikin. In October 2013, Little, Brown & Co. published Brad's book "The Everything Store about the rise of Amazon.com."
Brad graduated from Columbia University in 1993 and is originally from Cleveland, Ohio. He lives in San Francisco with his twin daughters.
