    Story
    (816)

    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.

    Story

    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 Quest: Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World

    Story

    A master storyteller as well as a leading energy expert, Yergin shows us how energy is an engine of global political and economic change. It is a story that spans the energies on which our civilization has been built and the new energies that are competing to replace them. From the jammed streets of Beijing to the shores of the Caspian Sea, from the conflicts in the Mideast to Capitol Hill and Silicon Valley, Yergin takes us into the decisions that are shaping our future.

    Story

    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.

    Story

    Delving into a world once shrouded in mystery, this investigative report provides a fascinating account of the annual meetings of the world's most powerful people, The Bilderberg Group. Since first meeting in 1954 at the Bilderberg Hotel in the Netherlands, The Bilderberg Group has been comprised of prime ministers, presidents and the wealthiest CEOs of the world, all deliberating the economic and political future of humanity.

    Story

    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.
