The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon | [Brad Stone]

The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon

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.

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.

    "Very driven founder"

    The founders of Amazon, Apple, and Starbuck are very passionate in what they believe in. This makes them look crazy, but they get results. All three books can have their own reality shows with all that drama.

    "A must read for managers"

    In this audiobook Bezos bio is not as interesting as Amazon's culture overview. I believe the author has successfully shown the evolution of a digital firm across almost 3 decades.

    "exclamation of customer service"

    I quite enjoyed this book which was the audible download. The author did a great job sharing this information about Amazon. Learned about the relentless pursuit of customer satisfaction along with the determination of an individual who will stop at nothing to achieve it.
