MixedThe New York Times Book Review\"Amazon Unbound is particularly valuable in explaining how the company makes money, and the day-to-day decisions that end up having a big effect on consumers: Is it worth it, for example, to sell pallets of bottled water, with their low cost and expensive shipping? ... I was, though, left wishing at times for a...book that made a tighter connection between the inside of the juggernaut and its effects on the world ... Significantly, the book is also very much a biography of Bezos. And that makes it timely at a moment when our economy is dominated by giant firms headed by a small handful of men, whose personalities and whims we need to understand whether we like it or not ... As biography, the book is both limited and perhaps strengthened by the fact that Stone has lost his former access to Bezos ... It’s safe to say that Amazon Unbound does suffer at times from a lack of psychological insight into Bezos. But it benefits from the author’s distance, and makes for a dense, at times juicy tour of the company Bezos built.
