Read The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon Online Free - 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 readers 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.

I had heard scuttlebutt that the book was hostile to Amazon. I didn't find that to be the case at all. In fact, it increased my admiration for Jeff and what he and his team have accomplished.
To be sure, it is incomplete and doubtless has many inaccuracies, but it gives insight into the mind of a...

The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon is perfect for a specific group of people: job-seekers.
If you're currently looking for work, pick up a copy of this book, as it does convey a very important message. That is, never work at Amazon. And no, that message is not just for prospect...

WHY I HATE AMAZONLCOM
I confess: I read this book on my Kindle — my eighth Kindle, no less! — and of course I bought the book from Amazon.com. As I have practically every other book I’ve read over the past eight or ten years. And I have to admit that I’ve bought lots of other stuff from the compan...

I placed my first book order at Amazon in 1999. I was living in Ann Arbor at the time, within walking distance of the flagship Borders store. Because new books were expensive, I mostly shopped at a used book store down the street instead. The selection was unpredictable, but I loved browsing thei...

Amazon is both “missionary and mercenary” and is a line from Brad Stone, the author of The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon. That to me sums this book up.
Given recent events, aka Hachette-Amazon, it’s required reading for anyone involved in the publishing industry. I think Amazo...

Обичам бизнес книгите. Особено тези, които обещават да ми разкажат едновременно за два мои любими и на пръв поглед почти несъвместими свята – на технологичните компании и на книгоиздаването, каквато се оказа „Джеф Безос и векът на Amazon“. Тук е моментът да си призная, че не ползвам Amazon (моите...

The cover of this book is actually a pretty good visual summary of what you find inside: a great look at Amazon and Jeff Bezos but with the real man (frustratingly) only coming through in part. While Jeff Bezos gave his support to the book, he didn't participate in the way that Steve Jobs did wit...

The professional Jeff Bezos (pronounced BAY-zohs not BEE-zohs) is a hard-ass, bad-ass, or a superlative-free just plain ass. I’m not judging, just sayin’. It’s all perspective. If you are an employee or competitor, watch out. If you are a customer, you can count on an advocate with an obsession f...

انتهي من الكتاب وستعرف الفرق بين من يعمل ومن لا يعمل.
الكتاب: سيرة ذاتية لجيف بيزوس الذي أسس الشركة العملاقة الأكثر أثرًا على القطاعات التجارية: أمازون. كلما قرأت أكثر عن بيزوس خيل إلي فرعون وهو يبني الأهرامات.

I found the book interesting and informative, to see how an outsider views both Jeff and Amazon. Of course, as with any book where the subject is not an active participant, the book is slanted toward those episodes where Stone can find someone to talk about them. And of course, he includes that w...
