Publisher's Summary

Amazon is the fastest company ever to reach $100 billion in sales, and they didn’t reach that landmark by staying in their comfort zone. Risk-taking is the key that unlocked the door to growth at Amazon, but those risks were (and are) intentional, calculated, and strategic.

Thomas Edison believed: I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.” Like Edison, Amazon’s founder Jeff Bezos has also linked experimentation and failure with growth and success. 

But “risk-taking” can be costly (even disastrous) if you don’t know how to use it to your advantage. Fortunately, Bezos has provided every business owner a hidden-in-plain-sight road map for how he grew Amazon through his letters to shareholders (or as he named them, "shareowners") that he has written annually for the past 20 years. 

For the first time, technology and risk expert Steve Anderson has analyzed and distilled these letters to reveal the key 14 growth principles that unlock the lessons, mind-set, and steps Bezos has used to make Amazon the massive success it is today.

Now, business owners, leaders, CEOs, employees, and managers can apply these same principles to grow their business to be more efficient, productive, and successful...fast!

Good stuff

I’d give this a 5 star rating BUT Jeff is only quoted. It would get a 5 if the author actually said anything about the book itself

2nd listen and worth it!

This was a powerful book with a really great perspective on the Bezos business strategies with Amazon and beyond. I’m glad I waited for the second listen to put this full review in since I just met Karen only a couple weeks ago too!
