ABOUT THE BOOK

You, or somebody you know, has likely purchased something from Jeff Bezos’ company. He is one of the rare businessmen who has been able to successfully launch and grow a company of such wide use and dominance that it’s hard to imagine American life without its existence.

With his wife’s full support, Bezos quit his job and went to Seattle to follow his dream of starting a company that sells books online. His decision to follow his dream at the risk of a stable life was made according to what he calls “regret minimization framework,” in which he thought about the number of regrets he would have at age eighty. “I knew that if I failed I wouldn't regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not ever having tried.
