The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon
PreviewThe Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon offers a balanced, largely anecdotal perspective on the makings of the multi-billion dollar corporation. Highlighting the positive business approaches while not shying away from the less favorable practices, author Brad Stone effectively captures the spirit of Amazon, both the good and the bad. Through detailed discussion around several of Amazon’s key principles, including frugality, customer service orientation, corporate culture, and employee ethics, readers are ultimately invited to decide for themselves: is The Everything Store everything we want it to be?
