Recode senior correspondent Jason Del Rey has signed a deal with Harper Business to write a book about the retail battle between Walmart vs. Amazon and its effect on consumers.
The book will focus on how the battle is causing a shift in retail that will change the ways we shop and live.
Del Rey has spent the last seven years reporting on Amazon, the e-commerce industry, and how technology is transforming brick-and-mortar retail.
Del Rey is also the host of “Land of the Giants,” a new narrative podcast series about the biggest tech companies of our time. The first season is called The Rise of Amazon and explores the past, present, and future of Jeff Bezos’ company.
And he’s the producer of “Code Commerce,” an event series featuring unscripted interviews with the most influential entrepreneurs and executives working at the intersection of technology and commerce.
Del Rey has been a business journalist since 2007, and has previously covered media and startups for Advertising Age and Inc. magazine. In 2016, he was named a Loeb Award Finalist for articles he co-wrote about Jack Dorsey’s return to Twitter as CEO. And in 2019, the National Retail Federation named him as one of the “25 People Shaping Retail’s Future.”
