As a user of Amazon I was a bit horrified to read about Jeff Bezos's shallow philosophy and his motivation to make a lot of money so he can spend it on developing space travel. Personally I think this is a sad way to use great power and wealth. But putting aside my opinions of his world-view, the story of Amazon is a great story and one that affects us all. Brad Stone's book is really well written and keeps you vigorously turning the pages. The energetic lives of such relentlessly driven, clever people as Bezos are always interesting. Certainly anyone in the retail business should read it, because he is, or will be, your competitor and if he is not thinking about how to replace you, he is wondering how to disintermediate you.

The inside story of a manifest genius at work, absolutely gripping and unputdownable. To read about his application dedication and intellectual force makes one feel inadequate by comparison and one is overcome by humility. Furthermore when one has the good fortune to trade with Amazon, what a joy to have the satisfaction, simplicity and convenience of dealing with them, then one is overcome with a felling of gratitude for what Bezos has achieved.

This was a great read, telling the story of the rise and rise of Amazon and it's founder, Jeff Bezos. Even at the end (and of course, it's not the end) of the book you don't know whether to love him or despise him, but you have to admire him IMO.
Certainly worth reading.
