Amazon’s business model is deceptively simple: Make online shopping so easy and convenient that customers won’t think twice. It almost can be summed up by the button on every page: “Buy now with one click.”
Why has Amazon been so successful? Much of it has to do with Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO, whose unique combination of character traits and business strategy has driven Amazon to the top of the online retail world. Richard Brandt charts Bezos’s rise from computer nerd to world-changing entrepreneur.
Through interviews with Amazon employees, competitors, and observers, Brandt has deciphered how Bezos makes decisions. The story of Amazon’s ongoing evolution is a case study in how to reinvent an entire industry, and one that businesses today ignore at their peril.

Legendary money manager Ken Fisher outlines the most common--and costly--mistakes investors make.
- Small cap stocks are best for all time. Bunk!
- A trade deficit is bad for markets. Bunk!
- Stocks can't rise on high unemployment. Bunk!
Many investors think they are safest following widely accepted Wall Street wisdom--but much of Wall Street wisdom isn't so wise. In fact, it can be costly bunk. In Debunkery: Learn It, Do It, and Profit From It--Seeing Through Wall Street's Money-Killing Myths, Ken Fisher--named one of the 30 most influential individuals of the last three decades by Investment Advisor magazine--details why so many investors fail to get the long-term results they desire.
The short answer is many investors fail to question if what they believe is true--and are therefore blinded by tradition, biases, ideology, or any number of cognitive errors. Your goal as an investor shouldn't be to be error-free--that's impossible. Rather, to be more successful, you should aim to lower your error rate. Debunkery gets you started by debunking 50 common myths--but that's just the beginning. It also gives you the tools you need to continue to do your own debunkery for the rest of your investing career.
