Publisher's Summary

Winner of the 2013 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award.
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 achieve that end, 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 is 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.

Just too long

This could have been better with a more rigorous edit. Some of the details didn't seem that relevant to the overall story.

Its Bezos' story and not of Amazon

Very disappointing read. Its all about Bezos and his style of working. Not what the title suggests.
