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.

Loved to Hear the Background Story; Would Highly Recommend this book!!

Very interesting to understand how Jeff Bezos stated Amazon and the successes and roadblocks he and the company encountered along the journey. I am an avid Amazon Prime shopper and have been a Buyer for several retail chains in my career and Brad Stone does a very good job bringing the reader along for the Amazon journey that has changed the face of retail for not only the customer but the competition.

It changes the way you look at Amazon

When I started this book I thought that Amazon was the evolution of a bookstore. Now I understand that it was all a master plan, with rigorous hard work and on top of all of that was Jeff Bezos, the man has understood what he had on his hands from day one and never let go. Very entertaining and very useful for any entrepreneur.
