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.

    "More interesting than expected"

    It was originally suggested by my boss to read this book. I didn't have to make it very far into it before I was hooked. The book was far more interesting than I expected. And I will definitely listen to it again

    "Una Gran Historia Empresarial"

    El libro es bueno y te describe bien el contexto biografico de Amazon centrado principalmente en su fundador Jeff Bezos, donde una vez revisando su historia no resulta dificil comprender porque Amazon es y continue siendo una de las empresas mas populares y vanguardistas en su nicho del mundo

    Story
    "Obsolete"

    I wish many of these books would be dated so I would know it was written in 2012.
    The story is good, even though it feels a bit repetitive.
