    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.

    Ten years ago the idea of getting into a stranger's car or walking into a stranger's home would have seemed bizarre and dangerous, but today it's as common as ordering a book online. Uber and Airbnb have ushered in a new era: redefining neighborhoods, challenging the way governments regulate business, and changing the way we travel. In the spirit of iconic Silicon Valley renegades like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, another generation of entrepreneurs is using technology to upend convention and disrupt entire industries.

    Bewundert, gefürchtet und hart kritisiert: Firmengründer Jeff Bezos und sein Unternehmen Amazon mit Sitz in Seattle ist mit seinen 182 Millionen Kunden längst nicht nur der größte Online-Einzelhändler der Welt. In beängstigendem Tempo treibt der Erfinder des Kindle die digitale Wirtschaft vor sich her und erobert immer mehr Geschäftsfelder - von Hardware, Logistik und digitalem Content über Web-Hosting und dem Griff nach internationalen Web-Domains bis zu einem geheimen Raumfahrtprojekt.
