business news in context, analysis with attitude

Bloomberg Businessweek has a must-read excerpt from a new book by Brad Stone, "The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos & The Age of Amazon," in which he looks at the personal and business evolution of the e-commerce pioneer that "rivals Wal-Mart as a store, Apple as a device maker, and IBM as a data services provider," and will "rake in about $75 billion this year."

It is a fascinating excerpt ... and when I was done with it, I immediately went to - go figure - Amazon and bought a digital copy that will be downloaded to my Kindle application next week when the book is officially published. (It all took about 30 seconds ... which is a statement in itself about how the world has changed.)
