On the 16th of July, 1995, a young man named Jeff Bezos invited 300 hundred of his friends and colleagues to a beta test of a website he had developed. The website, constructed to help prospective buyers purchase anything they wanted from the confines of their homes, was named after a famous South American river. Thus, Amazon.com first came into public memory. Before the test, however, Jeff worked with only a handful of people to develop the software in a garage. That�s where it all started. That is what Sara Gilbert captures in the book, The Story of Amazon.com.
After the beta test was done, the company took off successfully, and Jeff Bezos became a pioneer of the e-commerce industry. The book covers all the main events in the lives of the founders of the company and provides great insight into how Amazon.com became what it is today. The main aim of this book is to inspire young, brilliant minds to not conform to fear and social norms, but to go out there and achieve what they always thought to be plausible. Today, Amazon�s branches are spread all over the world and the company�s name is synonymous with online shopping.
