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.

    "Great but maybe not comprehensive"

    Great insight on Amazon and Bezos but feels like it's missing some details. There is also a lot of jumping around timelines. Would still recommend to get an insight on this great company.

    Story
    "Fascinating and chilling"

    This was a very detailed and fascinating story about Jeff Bezos, and Amazon. At the end of the book I decided I don't like Jeff Bezos and his approach to business - he is dismantling as many intangibles we we cherish as humans as he is creating good. In the end will he have done much more than saved us all a couple bucks here and there, but at what expense. Or is Jeff Bezos simply an indication of our times where personal interest stands before that of community, country and the future of our children.

    Fascinating book that really made me think.

    "Excellent book"

    Excellent book. I may even purchase the print copy just so that I can have a physical version in my library as well. The audiobook was more practical for my schedule. The narrator was very engaging. As a publisher and author, I found this book to be very inspiring as well as a good look inside the mind of the man behind Amazon.com.
