- Eye Opening
Technology journalist Brad Stone details the rise of Amazon, from its earliest days in founder Jeff Bezos’s garage to its success as a global, game-changing online retailer, technology service provider and platform. Stone asserts that he had Bezos’s cooperation, though this corporate biography is unauthorized. Stone conducted 300 interviews with current and former Amazon employees, including those involved from the beginning. Though Bezos’s wife gives it only one-star with her review, getAbstract recommends Stone’s opus as the most comprehensive and readable account of “The Everything Store” and its visionary leader.
