Great character, facinating story, excellent performance. For me the revelation from the book came from the fact that on the way to success Amazon had to go through lots of ups and downs, painful decisions and generational changes. I highly recommend this book.
The book is full of publicly available information compiled rather as a fact book than as a comprehensive story. The book might be interesting for those who are totally unfamiliar with the state of current world economic and polical events. I found there little inside information, analysis or fresh ideas.
The book claims to reveal true story behind Bilderberg Group, a secretive "World's Government" as it is portrayed in the book. Credibility of the book is heavily depended on the truth of the facts it uses to support the claims. But unfortunately, the book is fraught with factual errors and misstatements.
Just a quote from the book: "NBC is a subsidiary of RCA, a media conglomerate". Yes it was, until RCA was acquired and broken up by GE in ... 1986. This fact about RCA puts another perspective to the following quote from this 2007 book: "Today, the RCA directorate is made up of British-American establishment figures that belong to other organizations such as the CFR, NATO, the Club of Rome, the Trilateral Commission, Bilderbergers, Round Table, etc." There are numerous present references to Manufacturers Hanovers Bank. In fact, this bank was acquired by Chemical Bank in 1991 and the Manufacturers name was dropped since then by the acquirer. And there are many other similar examples.
I decided not to finish listening to this book because it will be totally impossible for me to sieve through the information found in the book and to tell the truth from incorrect and distorted facts.
