As it nears its 20th anniversary, Amazon has finally come to embody Jeff Bezos’s original vision of “The Everything Store.” It sells millions of products both new and used, hosts the storefronts of thousands of other smaller retailers and the computer infrastructure of thousands of other technology companies, universities, and government agencies. Bezos believes there are no natural limits to his company’s mission, and to fulfill this vision he has developed a corporate culture of idiosyncratic customs and draconian levels of secrecy. In his new book, “The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon,” Bloomberg Businessweek senior writer Brad Stone pulls back the curtain on the inner workings of one of high-tech’s most fascinating companies. On October 24th, join Brad and a lineup of former Amazon execs discussing what makes Amazon great and how Jeff Bezos’s unique style of management can be applied elsewhere in business.
