About the Site

The Brooks Review started in 2010 as a passion project for Ben Brooks. Ostensibly it started as high level analysis of the tech industry at large, but quickly morphed into what it is best known for today: no bullshit takes on products.

The Brooks Review has been quoted by CNN, The Financial Times, and many other more well respected sites than this one. It’s a consistent place you can navigate to and watch someone sink a lot of time, money, and thought into areas where people would otherwise just settle for what they have.

The overarching goal is honesty, and being true the passions that follows the writers on the site.

About Ben Brooks

Ben Brooks started his career professionally in 2005 and founded a Real Estate Property Management company shortly there after. He ran this company for eight years, through the real estate collapse, and always kept the same level of cynicism. In 2014 Ben made the jump into the technology industry, joining MartianCraft as a full time project manager for some of thier biggest clients. Just over a year later, in early 2016 Ben was promoted to Chief Marketing Officer.

I own stock in UPS, Microsoft, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Oracle. I have owned this stock since 1999 and seriously doubt that it clouds my judgment — as should be evident from my general lack of dogging on other clothiers. Though I only ship with UPS, so there probably is some shipping industry bias.
