A Washington Post Notable Book
This New York Times bestseller is a “masterful” (The Washington Post), “juicy tour of the company [Jeff] Bezos built” (The New York Times Book Review), revealing the most important business story of our time by the bestselling author of The Everything Store.
Almost ten years ago, Bloomberg journalist Brad Stone captured the rise of Amazon in his bestseller The Everything Store. Since then, Amazon has expanded exponentially, inventing novel products like Alexa and disrupting countless industries, while its workforce has quintupled in size and its valuation has soared to nearly two trillion dollars. It’s almost impossible to go a day without encountering the impact of Jeff Bezos’s Amazon, between services like Whole Foods, Prime Video, and Amazon’s cloud computing unit, AWS, plus Bezos’s ownership of The Washington Post. We live in a world run, supplied, and controlled by Amazon and its iconoclast founder.
In Amazon Unbound, Brad Stone presents an “excellent” (The New York Times), deeply reported, vividly drawn portrait of how a retail upstart became of the most powerful and feared entities in the global economy. Stone also probes the evolution of Bezos himself—who started as a geeky technologist totally devoted to building Amazon, but who transformed to become a fit, disciplined billionaire with global ambitions, who ruled Amazon with an iron fist, even as he found his personal life splashed over the tabloids.
Definitive, timely, and “engaging” (Jon Meacham, author of The Soul of America), Stone has provided an unvarnished portrait of a man and company that we couldn’t imagine modern life without.
glad the author didn’t read the book
love his enthusiasm, not the voice - I understand the need for narrators now - I just wish there was a middle ground - like a samuel l Jackson
ok wrong type of book - well, not to me, but I can see how others might feel that way haha
Check out Brock Johnson’s last Amazon course it’s a $1 a day or 15$ for a lifetime I promise you it’s the best resource. Also look into Amazon merch and sourcing designs from people and starting passive income in that way too! These are cheaper resources because you need tools to do things like Amazon like helium10 and viral launch! Which are chrome extensions that allow you to find keywords please please check it out. I’ve never read this book.
