The definitive story of Amazon.com, one of the most successful companies in the world, and of its driven, brilliant founder, Jeff Bezos.

Amazon.com started off delivering books through the mail. But its visionary founder, Jeff Bezos, wasn't content with being a bookseller. He wanted Amazon to become the everything store, offering limitless selection and seductive convenience at disruptively low prices. To do so, he developed a corporate culture of relentless ambition and secrecy that's never been cracked. Until now. Brad Stone enjoyed unprecedented access to current and former Amazon employees and Bezos family members, giving readers the first in-depth, fly-on-the-wall account of life at Amazon. Compared to tech's other elite innovators--Jobs, Gates, Zuckerberg--Bezos is a private man. But he stands out for his restless pursuit of new markets, leading Amazon into risky new ventures like the Kindle and cloud computing, and transforming retail in the same way Henry Ford revolutionized manufacturing.

THE EVERYTHING STORE will be the revealing, definitive biography of the company that placed one of the first and largest bets on the Internet and forever changed the way we shop and read.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relentless Drive and Passion This is an intriguing and informative read, not just about Amazon's inception and growth into the juggernaut that it is today, but of Bezos himself. There are many elements in the man's life that seem to parallel Steve Jobs - mostly, the drive to succeed and the relentlessness and passion for seeing a dream become a reality. This book provides both a humanity and an in-humanity to Amazon at the same time, but ultimately illustrates the rise of a company that has been at the forefront of pioneering changes to the publishing and book industry. Brad Stone does an excellent job of providing incredible insights and backgrounds and walks a fine balance between being praising and being critical. An impressive read and one I would highly recommend to anybody working within retail or the publishing industry.
