Jeff Bezos Secrets That Made Amazon The Everything Store

There is a link between genius and neurosis. It seems the more talented and unique a person is, the more turbulent are his or her thought processes and relationships with people. Take the case of Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon.com. The man is a virtual dynamo of energy and enterprise. The company he started was literally constructed around the scaffolding of his visionary thinking. It almost seems Amazon is an extension of Jeff Bezos. 

Amazon, like Apple, is a place where constant bickering and arguing goes on. This atmosphere of tension and creative conflict is the secret of its success. A lot of problems get resolved thanks to the radical honesty found at Amazon.

Bezos doesn’t want “yes” men. He is a lover of challenges and encourages his staff to question reality itself. And he is a perfectionist par excellence. If anything goes wrong he wants explanations from the people responsible for the SNAFU. In fact, he can get pretty nasty and mean when he talks to someone who doesn’t acknowledge his mistake. 

This confrontational style reminds one of Steve Jobs more than anyone else. Bezos even has his personal email open at all hours to the public for any complaints they might have regarding blunders by employees at Amazon. The book by Brad Stone will go into printing on October 22nd. It is titled “The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon.” The hardcover edition of this biography is now available for pre-order at Amazon for $16.80 while Kindle edition is available at $10.99. The biography will be released on October 15th.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
