"An immersive play-by-play of the company's ascent.... It's hard to imagine a better retelling of the Amazon origin story." -- Laura Bennett, New Republic

Amazon.com's 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, and his book is the first in-depth, fly-on-the-wall account of life at Amazon. The Everything Store is the book that the business world can't stop talking about, 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.

Review: The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon

User Review  - Remo Uherek - Goodreads

Enjoyed this founding story of Amazon.com. Very fascinating how Amazon could turn itself from a simple retailer to a full-fledged technology company. Loved to learn more about Jeff Bezos, a highly intelligent and driven entrepreneur. If you like founding stories, you will like this book. Read full review

Review: The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon

User Review  - Andhika Padmawan - Goodreads

This is not the usual business book. There is no a single big mantra to be big like Amazon.com. There are, however, skirmishes and painfully ways in almost 20 years of Amazon journey. I like the Amazon Web Services and Kindle development stories so far. A lot can be learnt from it. Read full review
