Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and one of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs, is still a mystery to the media and the public. The billionaire space innovator and father of four rarely gives interviews. He only began to appear in public more often after the launch of Amazon Studios, a service that surprised Hollywood with a completely new way of creating films.

The quotes are taken from Jeff Bezos’s public appearances, interviews, presentations, conferences and letters to shareholders. They often contain the words “relentless” and “long-term thinking”. These words best characterize Jeff Bezos’s personality and his approach to doing business.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Jeff Bezos has a great mind for business, and he’s been quoted a lot over the years. This book includes not only his quotes, but links to the sources they came from.

The book is organized in sections. The first section is about Bezos and his family support. The other sections contain quotes about his different endeavors such as Amazon, the Washington Post, Blue Origin, and space colonization. There are also inspirational quotes as well as his beliefs about leadership, the importance of customer appreciation, and failure and success.

Here’s one of my favorite quotes: “The smartest people are constantly revising their understanding, reconsidering a problem they thought they’d already solved. They’re open to new points of view, new information, new ideas, contradictions, and challenges to their own way of thinking.” –Inc., February 15, 2019

This is a good book for anyone who’s interested in business or Jeff Bezos’s biography.

About the Author

Olivia Longray, born September 06, 1980, is а journalist and author who loves her family and the surrounding world. Perceives life as a gift given to us for self-improvement, creative work and growing in love.

Books have always been a big part of my life. As a kid, I cherished a dream about becoming a librarian or a journalist. I grew up, got a degree in journalism, started to work as a reporter in the news agency, was an editor and a TV producer. After my baby boy arrived, I tried to write a children’s book. The writing process filled me with immense (overwhelming) joy and true sense of artistic self-expression. Then came a book for grown-ups. It was the story of the weigh-loss journey of my husband that marked the start of a healthy life for our family. Now I feel blessed that I have my family, our morning jogging and healthy meals, travels and this big amazing world.
