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.

    Story
    "tenacity and foresight"

    There were a few pieces of this puzzle I had not quite put together yet. I thank the author for his research and efforts and I thank Jeff for his relentless push to change how things are done. I must say, I admire his tenacity and foresight.

    Story
    "I loved learning more about Jeff Bezos and Amazon"
    Where does The Everything Store rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Real insights to the man behind the company. I enjoyed this as much as learning about Elon Musk.

    Story
    "Boring"
    What disappointed you about The Everything Store?

    The Story about Amazon is in its own right Amazing, no doubt about that, however, the narrative of this book is boring and disappointing.


    Has The Everything Store turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator can make or break an audio book, this time it broke it for me.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No really, I couldn't listen to it more than 2 chapters...

    "Good information, well delivered"

    The story has a lot of depth and is well researched. Not boring. Feels very balanced, does not glorify Amazon or Bezos. Inspirational and some practical insight. Narration is dynamic.

    "Really? That is it? Boring"

    I was expecting a lot more, but since the very first 5 minutes kind of knew if it was going to be same rest of book, not good!
    Giving 3 stars because I have lot os respect for the billionaires and I am a huge fan and user of amazon, that is it.
