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
    "interesting enough.."

    great parts (to me the "funny" stories the likes of Jeff's witty anger outbursts) alternating with boring parts(the likes of detailed curricula of various co-workers) make for an interesting read, would like to read part two .

    Story
    "Objective retelling of an intriguing man's life"

    Stylistically: While the author does admire Bezzos, he retells most of the famous CEO's life objectively, relying on several people's stories instead of merely retelling his interactions with Bezzos.

    Content: Bezzos is a truly fascinating individual, with flaws and strengths, both of which Brad Stone makes sure to highlight. The complex nature and unclear morals keep the book intriguing.

    "slower than expected"

    having recently finished Elon Musk, this book moved much more slowly and didn't keep my attention nearly as well. There's useful information in here, it's just a little less juicy than I had hoped.

    "Fascinating story of a world-changing man."

    Well written, well spoken audiobook. Engaging story that gets personal, but stays fair and even handed throughout. I am biased in that I have always loved Amazon, but now my love is informed, and I can defend it and Jeff Bezos against the haters.

    "It was ok."

    Its worth a listen. I give it 3 stars because ive heard better more interesting books. The Elon Musk one for example. But its not too bad, kept me company on my drive to and from work.
