A loja de tudo
A Amazon foi uma pioneira no comércio de livros pela internet e esteve à frente da primeira grande febre das pontocom. Mas Jeff Bezos, seu visionário criador, não se contentaria com uma livraria virtual descolada: ele queria que sua empresa dispusesse de uma seleção ilimitada de produtos a preços radicalmente baixos — e se tornasse “a loja de tudo”.
Com o objetivo de descor...more
Nevertheless, the book does bring out Jeff in a negative image (at least for me or maybe it's my bias).(less)
To be sure, it is incomplete and doubtless has many inaccuracies, but it gives insight into the mind of a remarkable man and the company he has built - a company with profound influence on the present and future shape of our society.

If you're currently looking for work, pick up a copy of this book, as it does convey a very important message. That is, never work at Amazon. And no, that message is not just for prospective employees who are thinking of braving the Jungle-esque conditions of the distribution centers. The message is for anyone thinking of joining any part of the company: never work at Amazon.
If you're ...more
I confess: I read this book on my Kindle — my eighth Kindle, no less! — and of course I bought the book from Amazon.com. As I have practically every other book I’ve read over the past eight or ten years. And I have to admit that I’ve bought lots of other stuff from the company over the years, including some really expensive items. Not so much because of the low prices, though I hardly object to them, as because of One-Click ordering, Amazon Prime, and the exceptionally good ...more

Given recent events, aka Hachette-Amazon, it’s required reading for anyone involved in the publishing industry. I think Amazon customers should also read it.
Also, I suggest reading the reviews written by some of the people mentioned in the book, including Mr. Bezos wife. But only after reading the book.
I’m a bit surprised at ...more

Jeff Bezos is one of the most controversial figures in modern-day America because he's both - both a self-made billionaire and a scourge to independent retailers everywhere. The man who founded the empire that is Amazon Inc. is a self-made man who fully buys into America's "the customer is always right" mantra and a man who epitomizes the cruel corporate obsession with profits.
Also, what's fascinating to me is that both Bezos and Musk just really really badly want humanity to go to Mars. Like if that's the goal, of course you have to take over the world first. Good luck with that guys.
I found the discussion about his biological father to be sensationalistic -- and unnecessarily intrusive to Jeff's family (both his real family and his biological father's family ...more
I think Jeff is one of the most capable and effective founders ever, and I think the Amazon juggernaut is still in its early stages. ~Joy Covey
Overall a fascinating story of the determined underdog coming out on top. While it does get bogged down in a few places with excessive technical or legal details, this was a really engaging read. I particularly found the more personal stories around Bezos to be fascinating and thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the b ...more
What it does paint, though, is fascinating. Jeff Bez ...more
I was a bit skeptical about this book, as there have been accusations from MacKenzie Bezos (Jeff's wife) and others that the book contains numerous factual inaccuracies. The edition I read appears to have corrected some of these inaccuracies (e.g., MacKenzie objected to the assertion that Bezos read Remains of the Day before deciding to leave D.E. Shaw to start Amazon in order t ...more
I have to say, it took me awhile to realize what Jeff Bezos's problem was with the book. Because, well... from everything else I've read about Amazon, this shit is accurate. Don't like being characterized as a perfectionist, demanding, dictatorial genius? Then don't be one, Jeff Bezos. Don't like having your company's methods of skirting around established trade laws become know ...more
Amazon did not come off as a fun or nice place to work.
This quote describes it all in a nutshell as to what lead to the formation of , today what we know as, Amazon. "The everything store" is a brilliant archive of how a nascent idea of building a customer-obsessed corporation consummated into the biggest e-tailer of all time.
Amazon is one of those brands that has become a household name today. There are some very interesting decisions undertaken which have made this brand formation pos ...more
