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.

I found this book to be entertaining, insightful, and wholly worth a read. I come away from the book with a better appreciation for Amazon, Jeff Bezos, and online retail.
Enjoyed this book a lot and it is entertaining and informative .
Thoughts after reading this ? GSM working in Amazon and Apple are the same breed .
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.
This is one of the great book in business it is similar to apple story in Steve Jobs biography that published few year ago
I would and I have stared again.
Jeff the found of Amizon. He lives and work on a very low budget and get folks behind him motivated by doing the same.
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.
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.
