Publisher's Summary

You're on a road trip with an old man and a younger one.
Business stories are told. Wisdom is revealed. A new perspective emerges. Companies like Costco and Kodak, General Motors and Walmart provide color and texture as they appear on the horizon and in the rearview mirror. Real companies. Real decisions. Real outcomes. Jeff Bezos and Amazon give this road trip its rhythm as the four pillars of their success are made plain. It's a wonderful success, easily repeated, even by a lemonade stand. But only if you understand the importance of the marshmallow.

Transform your business (life) with this framework

What did you love best about Be Like Amazon?

It's a quick listen.

But there's value in almost every minute.

What did you like best about this story?

There *was* a story. Most business books don't lay out a story for their concepts. Yes, the story was lame, and felt forced but it really helped the concepts to be sticky.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Eisenberg's best book no movie.

Any additional comments?

The Amazon framework is a great prelude to Eisenberg's Buyer Legends process. Worthwhile.

What about Roy H Williams’s performance did you like?

Very engaging and approachable performance. The storyline reenforced many of the concepts directly, adding a level of depth to the application of the lessons.

This is one you can easily listen to in one sitting on a plane ride or a long drive and absorb it fully from beginning to end.
