The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon

"The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon"

Amazon.com started out as an online bookseller and it has come a long way from its humble and focused beginnings. Now, you can find pretty much anything you want to buy on the site, often at a steep discount.

The online retailer is the vision of one man--its founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, who is as spotlight-shy as his company’s corporate culture is secretive.

In writing “The Everything Store,” Bloomberg Businessweek senior reporter Brad Stone gained unprecedented access to current and former Amazon employees as well as members of the Bezos family to present a view of the one of the world’s most famous companies from the inside.

Guest:

Brad Stone, author of “The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon” (Little, Brown and Company, 2013) and a senior writer for Bloomberg Businessweek magazine.
