From the best-selling author of The Everything Store, an unvarnished picture of Amazonís unprecedented growth and its billionaire founder, Jeff Bezos, revealing the most important business story of our time.
ďIf a company and a culture can have a biographer, Stone is Amazonís - which, given the retailerís ubiquity, makes him a biographer of the way all of us live now.Ē (Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize winner and number-one New York Times best-selling author)
Almost 10 years ago, Bloomberg journalist Brad Stone captured the rise of Amazon in his best seller The Everything Store. Since then, Amazon has expanded exponentially, inventing novel products like Alexa and disrupting countless industries, while its workforce has quintupled in size and its valuation has soared to well over a trillion dollars. Jeff Bezosí empire, once housed in a garage, now spans the globe. Between services like Whole Foods, Prime Video, and Amazonís cloud computing unit, AWS, plus Bezosís ownership of The Washington Post, itís impossible to go a day without encountering its impact. We live in a world run, supplied, and controlled by Amazon and its iconoclast founder.
In Amazon Unbound, Brad Stone presents a deeply reported, vividly drawn portrait of how a retail upstart became one of the most powerful and feared entities in the global economy. Stone also probes the evolution of Bezos himself - who started as a geeky technologist totally devoted to building Amazon, but who transformed to become a fit, disciplined billionaire with global ambitions; who ruled Amazon with an iron fist, even as he found his personal life splashed over the tabloids.
Definitive, timely, and revelatory, Stone has provided an unvarnished portrait of a man and company that we couldnít imagine modern life without.
