Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Business/Educational, 2014

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 listeners 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.

    Story
    "Everything you wanted to know and more."

    I really enjoyed learning the history of Amazon, key players, and about Bezos. having had many friends eaten up and spit out by the company, it's good to understand the culture there and know why I would never steer my kids to work there. I still love to shop there, but this helped me realize it's not a good fit for.most employees.

    Story
    "good but no Isaacson"

    I enjoyed the book a lot and appreciated its mix of Bezos + Amazon, complimentary + critical. Storytelling and structure don't match up with Walter Isaacson, though.

    Story
    "didn't get any big message"

    The book is well written and has some really good sections, including a shart passage on Bezo's early brilliance is a school for gifted children. But I couldn't identify a powerful message to stick with by the time I finished the book.

    "Wow"

    This was absolutely amazing, with tremendous detail in many aspects of the Amazon.com sphere. I was surprised by the number of mispronounced words though. Don't let that stop you.

    "Amazing story of one of an internet visionary"

    My number one take from this book- have a clear and data driven vision of the future of technology, and build your business around it.
    Bezos believed the promise of the internet deeply.
