Kurzbeschreibung

15. Oktober 2013
The definitive story of Amazon.com, one of the most successful companies in the world, and of its driven, brilliant founder, Jeff Bezos.

Amazon.com started off delivering books through the mail. But its visionary founder, Jeff Bezos, wasn't content with being a bookseller. He wanted Amazon to become the everything store, offering limitless selection and seductive convenience at disruptively low prices. To do so, he developed a corporate culture of relentless ambition and secrecy that's never been cracked. Until now. Brad Stone enjoyed unprecedented access to current and former Amazon employees and Bezos family members, giving readers the first in-depth, fly-on-the-wall account of life at Amazon. Compared to tech's other elite innovators--Jobs, Gates, Zuckerberg--Bezos is a private man. But he stands out for his restless pursuit of new markets, leading Amazon into risky new ventures like the Kindle and cloud computing, and transforming retail in the same way Henry Ford revolutionized manufacturing.

THE EVERYTHING STORE will be the revealing, definitive biography of the company that placed one of the first and largest bets on the Internet and forever changed the way we shop and read.

Pressestimmen

Winner of the 2013 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award

Chosen as a Best Book of 2013 by The Washington Post, Forbes, The New Republic, and Gizmodo, and as one of the Top 10 Investigative Journalism Books of 2013 by Nieman Reports



"Mr. Stone tells this story with authority and verve, and lots of well-informed reporting.... A dynamic portrait of the driven and demanding Mr. Bezos." -- Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

"Engrossing.... Stone's long tenure covering both Bezos and Amazon gives his retelling a sureness that keeps the story moving swiftly." -- New York Times Book Review

"Jeff Bezos is one of the most visionary, focused, and tenacious innovators of our era, and like Steve Jobs he transforms and invents industries. Brad Stone captures his passion and brilliance in this well-reported and compelling narrative." -- Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs

"Stone's account moves swiftly and surely." -- New York Times Book Review, "Editor's Choice"

"The Everything Store is a revelatory read for everyone--those selling and those sold to--who wants to understand the dynamics of the new digital economy. If you've ever one-clicked a purchase, you must read this book." -- Steven Levy, author of Hackers and In the Plex

"A deeply reported and deftly written book.... Like Steven Levy's "In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives," and "Gates: How Microsoft's Mogul Reinvented an Industry -- and Made Himself the Richest Man in America" by Stephen Manes and Paul Andrews, it is the definitive account of how a tech icon came to life." -- Seattle Times

"Stone's book, at last, gives us a Bezos biography that can fit proudly on a shelf next to the best chronicles of America's other landmark capitalists." -- Forbes

"A rich chronicle of Bezos and his company." -- The New Yorker

"Stone's tale of the birth, near-death, and impressive revival of an iconic American company is well worth your time." -- Matthew Yglesias, Slate

"An engaging and fascinating read.... An excellent chronicle of Amazon's rise.... A gift for entrepreneurs and business builders of the new generation." -- Business Insider

"Outstanding.... An authoritative, deeply reported, scoopalicious, nuanced, and balanced take that pulls absolutely no punches." -- Adam Lashinsky, Fortune

"Fair-minded, virtually up-to-the-minute history of the retail and technology behemoth and the prodigious brain behind it.... Stone's inside knowledge of a company ordinarily stingy with information is evident throughout the book.... Stone presents a nuanced portrait of the entrepreneur, especially as he sketches in Bezos' unusual family history and a surprising turn it took during the writing of the book. His reporting on the Kindle's disruption of traditional publishing makes for riveting reading. A must-add to any business bookshelf." -- Kirkus

"Brad Stone has done a remarkable job in The Everything Store, in a way that Bezos would appreciate...." -- The Financial Times

"An immersive play-by-play of the company's ascent.... It's hard to imagine a better retelling of the Amazon origin story." -- The New Republic

"The meticulously reported book has plenty of gems for anyone who cares about Amazon, Jeff Bezos, entrepreneurship, leadership just the lunacy it took to build a company in less than two decades that now employs almost 90,000 people and sold $61 billion worth of, well, almost everything last year." -- Washington Post

"Stone has broken new ground, demonstrating the massive influence Amazon exercises not only in the retail sector, but also throughout society, including government regulation or the lack of it." -- Neiman Reports

"Offers absorbing management insights... Insiders will get a serious glimpse at an industry behemoth." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"The best business book of the year.... The Everything Store provides extraordinary access to one of the great business stories of this or any other time." -- Michael Levin, The Huffington Post



"A tome that paints a fascinating picture of a remarkable tech entrepreneur." -- The Economist

"Illuminating." -- Salon

"Stone's shoe-leather reporting is what makes the book stand out." -- GeekWire

"As fine a profile of a secretive, fast-growing company as you are likely to encounter." -- Michael Moritz, Chairman, Sequoia Capital, LinkedIn.com

I'm sure it's just the beginning for Amazon, but this book gives good account of the inception of THE online retailer and tech company. Gives clear picture of what it was like to be in & around that time of the early internet boom. Brad Stone has sourced so many ex-Amazonians and gives great insight into how a company embraced the internet, struggled for many years, valued growth through innovation and customer obsession over short-termism. Like Jobs, you get to see how another visionary developed with a tight focus, frugality and led with reality distortion field. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Found it funny that publisher is Hachette :) I bought on Amazon, read on iPad kindle app, but I'm yet to understand if I support elite authors vs self-publishing authors.... I guess the internet is helping to make this decision through mass purchase, true people's metric and Amazon will remain to be in the Center of things to come.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating, entertaining, incomplete 27. Dezember 2013
Von Peter Durward Harris TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is the story of Jeff Bezos and Amazon, from the perspective of a journalist who had plenty of access to employees and ex-employees as well as Jeff Bezos himself. The author makes clear both the faults and the successes of Bezos and Amazon, but limits the book's scope in some ways. While hinting at the devastation caused to traditional shopping (by Apple's iPod as well as Amazon's Kindle and other products), there isn't a lot of discussion here. Fair enough, as there will surely be other books about how Apple, Amazon and others have devastated local communities.

The author also says very little about Amazon's operations outside the USA, although I found it interesting that the reason Amazon haven't yet set up in Russia (the biggest economy still without an Amazon website) is because the infrastructure is inadequate just now. Perhaps that means South Korea will be next, though it doesn't get a mention.

Even within the main story of Amazon.com, a lot is omitted, one effect of which is the simplistic assertion that Amazon serves customers superbly while squeezing suppliers ruthlessly and expecting employees to devote themselves to Amazon without any regard for a work / family life balance. I have heard bits and pieces over the years about the way Amazon treat their employees, all of it reinforced by this book and then some. As for the author's distinction between customers and suppliers, that overlooks the fact that some customers have voluntarily contributed content to Amazon's website in the form of reviews, Listmanias, "So you'd like to ...." guides, tags, customer images and other stuff. The author occasionally mentions reviews in passing (listed in the index under customer reviews), but very few other software features are mentioned.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unveiling the secrets of Jeff! 4. Februar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Nothing is as fascinating as the journey of an obssessed entrepreneur! Brad Stone has done more than his homework. He has been following Bezos for over 20 years and recounts the many trials and attemps. He describes the learning curve and gives ample evidence of Jeff's determination of going against the tide. I have not seen any other entrepreneur who sided so agressivlee with the customer. Not with lip services but consequently and uncompomisingly. The casulties are former competitors who have ignored the threat. And many high caliber managers who did not embrace the entrpreneur's vision...

5.0 von 5 Sternen sehr empfehlenswert !! 19. Januar 2014
Von Pseudonym
Format:Kindle Edition
ich habe mir die kindle version dieses buchs gekauft in englisch.

spannend, interessant, gut geschrieben und daher sehr zu empfehlen!

es verdeutlicht die vergangenen 20 jahre amazon bis in die gegenwart ende 2013. der deutsche markt wird hierbei nur kurz erwähnt, was jedoch nicht negativ im gesamtkontext wiegt. im gegenteil: insbesondere die amerikanischen aktivitäten sind sehr spannend geschrieben.
ebenfalls wird die beherrschende marktführerschaft von amazon auch teilweise kritisch durchleuchtet und erlaubt Denkanstöße über die zukunft des unternehmens.
