“The Everything Store” by Brad Stone is the story of how Amazon.com went from delivering books through mail to becoming the everything store.

Through access to current and ex-employees, Brad Stone has come up with an in-depth account of life at Amazon.

The book focuses on painting a picture of Bezos and his philosophy and the adversities Amazon has faced over its 20+ years of existence.

From the clear-headed analysis that went into the idea behind Amazon to the positive feedback loops that were the reason for Amazon’s growth, the book is filled with anecdotes on the same.
