    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

    This is a great book. I did enjoy it and will listen to it more than once. It's nice to see the inner workings of a giant machine such as Amazon and what makes it tick. This book gives you the perspective of more than just the high level execs and more insight and the driving power of one of the most accomplished business men in our generation.

    Overall great book. I have already recommended it to multiple people.

    Say the name 'Enron' and most people believe they've heard all about the story that imperiled a presidency, destroyed a marketplace, and changed Washington and Wall Street forever. But in the hands of Kurt Eichenwald, the players we think we know and the business practices we think have been exposed are transformed into entirely new, and entirely gripping, material.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a book I would recommend to anyone that is willing to listen. It captivates you from the very begining.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It was difficult to put down as soon as it got started.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the numbers start flying, you have to be memorized! I was stuck in thought as to how something like this could fly by with none the wiser to the real motives of such crumby convoluted ideas.


    Any additional comments?

    The author does an excellent job unraveling this mystery and explaining it so everyone can understand. No special schooling needed for this book. Also have to give credit to the excellent narrator for this audio book. He makes it even more interesting.

    Overall, my expectations were far surpassed and im very glad I had the opportunity to enjoy this book. It is a little lengthy but worth every minute.
