Reviews

"In this vivid, anecdote-filled page-turner of a book, Stone goes deep inside a company with colossal power, one we rely on for low-cost, wonderful service, and one that also kills many businesses and jobs. With rare access to Amazon executives, readers are taken inside Amazon meetings, see up close Jezz Bezos's brilliance but also his belligerence, understand the trade-off between impressive efficiency versus the perils of market dominance, and get an up-to-the-moment appreciation of why government is now awake to the monopoly dangers posed by digital giants like Amazon."
--Ken Auletta, author of Googled

"There are really only a handful of writers who can craft a page-turning narrative about the most transformative business ideas. Brad Stone is one. His topic of choice -- Amazon and its founder Jeff Bezos -- is equal to his journalistic skill. In this book, he gives us his second must-read account of how the world's most important company and technology titan captured not only global retail, but Washington, Hollywood, outer space and your brain."
--Rana Foroohar, author of Makers and Takers and Don't Be Evil

"Brad Stone is now the Edward Gibbon of Amazon--a reliable and engaging chronicler of one of the great forces of our age. If a company and a culture can have a biographer, Stone is Amazon's--which, given the retailer's ubiquity, makes him a biographer of the way all of us live now."
--Jon Meacham, author of The Soul of America
