Learn about the story of one of the most successful companies in the world and discover all about its founder Jeff Bezos and his brilliant vision.  

Starting out as a simple bookseller that delivered books through mail, Amazon.com was just a modest company. But Jeff Bezos was too much of a visionary to settle with that and he began building a store that could contain an infinite selection of products at great prices. The service that Amazon offers has yet to find a rival. It started out with such a simple concept but now it’s a company known by almost every person in the world.

This book delivers an extremely accurate story and we can learn a lot from it: The ambition of Jeff Bezos, his inability to stop searching for ways to continuously evolve his company, and taking big risks to ensure big success are a couple of the many things we can learn from the founder of Amazon.com.

Brad Stone assures you that this will be a revealing journey that will unveil the definitive story of one of the most successful companies in the world.

I have greatly enjoyed this listening

I sense some parts of the story are creatively enhanced as writers will do I do find that the main point of the book is delivered that Amazon.com was created and developed by many people working long and hard to deliver on their vision. The work of all the people is shown in the book and as is the norm in companies being created their leader is both passionate and deliberate in approach to creating and building the "best" of what they do.

Great fun

This is a good book. It taught me to look at supply chain and customer satisfaction in a new way. I think if Jeff is as cheap as they say he is in the book it kind of makes him look like a dolt in regard to his employees. Yet his ideas about open communication online w/the customers and his total focus on the customer is an excellent case study for any industry

A solid, good, readable book

Almost everything that I buy today is from Amazon & that is exactly the kind of goal that Jeff Bezos had in mind for “Amazon” when he envisioned the online retail store. This book gives a wonderful insight into Jeff Bezos as an individual & the amazing journey that is Amazon.

An informative and compelling book

the book was very entertaining and I doubt there is a better source of material available on Amazon.com. It is an inspiring story to read about Bezos giving up his lucrative career and moving to Seattle to start Amazon. He saw the incredible opportunity in the internet and he risked everything for it.

So interesting

This was a really good read that details the start of Amazon and how Jeff Bezos had an amazing vision to create the Everything Store. There are a lot of details about the company and its forays into many different businesses.

This book is great

Everybody who buy this has polarized opinions. I can't blame them. It is a polarizing book. I imagine this is a love hate book. Obviously I personally do not know Jeff but I sure see what he has built. It was not an accident.

loved this book

The book gives all kinds of stories and insights into the inner workings of Amazon. Sure there other opinions. This is the authors mashup of other opinions as well as his own. People who know Jeff well or at least somewhat will have other opinions. OK that is natural.

most successful

This guide conveys a very exact story and we can gain so much from it: The aspiration of Jeff Bezos, his failure to quit scanning for approaches to ceaselessly advance his organization, guarantee huge achievement are two or three the numerous things we can gain from the organizer of Amazon.com.
