'Dumaine offers a lively history of Amazon's huge success and forecasts its effect on 21st-century business.' * Kirkus Reviews * 'More than any previous book, Bezonomics reveals why the Amazon habit is one in which we all increasingly indulge. Dumaine spoke to many of the company's top execs, walked the warehouse floors and listened to the fears and forecasts of competitors. The result is an insightful look at how Jeff Bezos built a trillion-dollar colossus from a theory about customer engagement.' -- Nir Eyal, bestselling author of Hooked and Indistractable 'If you want to know about Amazon - really know about Amazon! (and who doesn't?) - then you have to read this book. Brian Dumaine's deeply reported and yet accessible work takes you inside this secretive behemoth that's rewriting the rules of business and changing the world.' -- Andy Serwer, Editor-in-Chief of Yahoo! Finance 'How does Amazon do it all? You'll marvel at the tech giant's magic after reading Bezonomics.' -- David A. Vise, Pulitzer Prize-winning co-author of The Google Story 'Brian Dumaine has written a touchstone book, significant in helping people understand some of the big underlying forces changing the world we live in. In fifty years, historians may look back at Bezonomics and point out that its choice of protagonist captured the essence of what was happening at the time - in our society, in our culture and in our economy. Dumaine is a crisp and incisive writer, able to weave big, arcing themes with vivid details and narrative stories to make his insights come to life.' -- Jim Collins, author of Good to Great 'Highly engaging. An addictive read - one of the most compelling business books I've ever read. Meticulously researched...it never veers too far into dry details and is written engagingly.' -- Emma Newlands * Scotland on Sunday * 'Bezonomics is an easy and engaging read...Quite often, though, it is eye-opening.' -- Hugo Rifkind * The Times *
