The Everything Store : Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon by Brad Stone


Amazon made its mark sending new books quickly in nice, smile-embossed boxes. But its visionary founder, Jeff Bezos, wasn’t content with being a bookseller. He wanted Amazon to become the world’s store where everything is available to everyone, usually in 24 hours. To do so, he developed a corporate culture of relentless ambition and drive and revolutionized retail the way Ford revolutionized manufacturing. Brad Stone has been given unprecedented access to Amazon employees both current and former to give readers the first fly-on-the-wall narrative account of the world’s largest online retailer. In a club of tech business innovators that includes Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, Bezos stands out for his hyper-competitive business strategies which are leading Amazon to current ventures from hardware like e-readers and tablet PCs, web hosting for some of the world’s most valuable companies book publishing and even a top secret space program. The Everything Store will be the revealing, definitive biography of the company and its genius creator.

Our Review

You might feel e-commerce giant but why put in Logistics category of Book of the Month. But let me tell you e-tail more than a retail is always about Logistics than Technology or IT.
This book begins with author’s sycophancy for Jeff Bezos. Initially, you might feel this is an extensive advertisement for amazon. But don’t lose your patience stick to the book. Once you get into the grip you will realise it talks the truth.
Book tells how amazon faced and tackled logistical issues over the time period to grow as World’s first giant e-commerce site.
There is definitely lot to learn from this book and Jeff Bezos.
