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.
