The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon is a 2013 book written by journalist Brad Stone. It documents the rise of Amazon.com.[1][2] While a bestseller it received its first one-star review on Amazon from MacKenzie Bezos, then wife of Jeff Bezos, claiming many inaccuracies in her extensive review, while pointing out only one, the timing of Jeff Bezos reading the novel Remains of the Day.[3][4] Stone was allowed access to many current and former Amazon executives, but not to anyone directly associated with Bezos himself.[4][2]

Reception[edit]

So, the mantle is still open to tell the real story of Amazon. I’m not baiting people to fill the void, but do know this book isn't it.

Andy Jassy, Amazon.com Review[5]

The book won the 2013 Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award.[6]
