ABOUT THE BOOK You, or somebody you know, has likely purchased something from Jeff Bezos' company. He is one of the rare businessmen who has been able to successfully launch and grow a company of such wide use and dominance that it's hard to imagine American life without its existence. This company is, the world's largest online retailer. A multinational company headquartered in Seattle, Washington, initially started out as an online bookstore but quickly expanded into a general e-commerce site. Under Bezos' vision and leadership, it now sells everything from music CDs to groceries and children's toys. It's not hard to understand why the company has been so successful. Launched in 1994, right around the time when the Internet became widely used by the average American, the site offers busy individuals who don't have the time to physically shop at stores the ability to get everything they need in one place.
