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.

Great book. Very inspiring. The only thing that was a bit challenging was the author kept going back-and-forth through time as he weaved the story. Other than that, excellent book!

If you're thinking you were going to read a book to help you stay motivated toward success, this is not for you! Reads like a textbook. There is little to no storytelling/examples. It is clear that this book is a money grab, and that the author has accomplished very little to nothing in his life.
