Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Fascinating story about disruptive business innovation. Also a warning to anyone who may want to work for Amazon but does not share the company ethos! to learn the background to Amazon Prime was a real eye opener.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Everything Store?
Hearing of publishers' wrangling the impossible dilemma of price (value) and sales volume. It was also interesting to hear of Jeff Bezos' personal background and management approach. He has some seriously risky gut instinct that he is not afraid to act upon.
What does Pete Larkin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Initially Pete Larkin's narration style reminded me too much of the way movies trailers are are presented. I got used to it after a while but I would probably avoid other books narrated by him unless it involved men in muddy vests crawling into a demilitarized zone being chased by relentless waves of zombies.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, a page turner.
Any additional comments?
This felt thoroughly and carefully researched, the author did a great job and revealed some fascinating facts.

The first half of the download really did not get behind the building of Amazon and there was a real lack of depth to the people involved for me. Having just listened to Steve Job's story, this lacked detail on Bezos and the people behind the build up. The second half of the download is much better. Some of the narration with the quotes is really jarring and really irritated me. Worth a listen? - Yes, but the sorry could have been so much better..
