Reviews

This book is far more important than Just some body's experience at Amazon. Amazonia really does convey the experience of the era.
"This book is far more important than just somebody's experience at Amazon. Amazonia really does convey the experience of the era."
--Henry Blodget, Former Wall Street Analyst Who Covered Amazon.com in the Late 1990s

"Funny, contemplative . . . a memoir that generates frequent smiles of recognition."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"Marcus is a graceful writer with an eye for detail."
--The Boston Globe

"Should win over even the most jaded dot-com vets with [its] swift, clever, and intelligent rendering of their history."
--Seattle Weekly
