NEW YORK, March 14—Simon & Schuster will publish bestselling author and renowned journalist Brad Stone’s AMAZON UNBOUND, it was announced today. Publication date is scheduled for fall 2021.
In 2013 Stone published The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon, which chronicled the company’s ascension from fledging startup to one of the most successful retailers of all time. A New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, the book received rapturous reviews and won the 2013 Financial Times/Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award.
AMAZON UNBOUND will pick up where The Everything Store left off. Much has changed in the past six years. The world has been introduced to Alexa, which reshaped the way we interact with technology. Jeff Bezos has become the richest person on the planet and the subject of intense interest from the tabloids, while Amazon has become more than just a retailer, impacting fields as varied as AI, cloud computing, the grocery business, film and TV, and more. Amazon’s expansion into China and India has made the company into a truly global force to be reckoned with. With characteristic rigor, insight and wit, Stone will explore the company’s ongoing successes and failures and deconstruct its strategies for growth, and in doing so pose the ultimate question: Is Amazon good for us?
