Coming immediately on the heal of listing to THE SNOWBALL about Warren Buffett, I was looking for another great business bio. This, unfortunately, was not it.
First, let me just say that Neil Shah is apparently not my kind of narrator. His staccato delivery and robotic tone drove me to wish for the ending of this book. It couldn't come soon enough.
As for the content of ONE CLICK, it was such a shallow telling of the story of Bezos and Amazon, I'm frankly not sure what the point of writing it, much less publishing it, was. In defense of Brandt - I doubt anyone could make Amazon seem interesting. A great company to be sure (of which I am a Prime customer as well as leasing thousands of hours of compute power from AWS) and Bezos is whip-smart and an absolute visionary, but his life just didn't make a very interesting book.
I'd skip this one 100 times out of 100.

If your really into Amazon, check this book out. It has lost of information. However, if you aren't...it's kind of boring. The book didn't have enough interesting anecdotes to really hold my attention. It probably doesn't help that I'd just read "Steve Jobs" (which I can't shut up about). This story is pretty vanilla...which is a shame because I'm sure there's all sorts of tantalizing stories to be told about such a wildly successful company.
