Kirkus Reviews on The Amazon Way

Succinct, engaging and crafted from a high-level viewpoint; a rare open-kimono look at how one of the world’s most innovative companies executes its vision. 

A former Amazon executive offers an insider’s perspective on the company’s guiding principles. Amazon has had its share of coverage, including Brad Stone’s The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon(2013). But this lean book cuts a different way. Rossman, an executive at Amazon who left to become a managing director at a consulting firm, weaves his own war stories around Amazon’s 14 leadership principles. While these principles are no secret, Rossman brings them to life with insightful commentary of his own. Each chapter begins with a salient “Leaders at Amazon…” statement, e.g., “Leaders at Amazon focus on the key outputs for their business and deliver them with the right quality and in a timely fashion. Despite setbacks, they rise to the occasion and never settle.” Rossman then offers observations and anecdotes illuminating the corresponding idea. For example, in Chapter 1, “Obsess Over the Customer,” he discusses Amazon’s three customer desires, which the company considers “its holy trinity”—price, selection and availability. Instead of generalities, however, Rossman shares specific insider details that make each principle more dramatic.

    Quotes about the Book

    "John Rossman comes at it from a different direction. Instead of riding the hype to push IoT, he uses the megaphone of IoT to push organizations to go back to basics and first principles: How to improve customer experience, how to improve organizational excellence, how to test things without better the barn. Only then does he dive into how IoT can lead to new business models and change company strategies.

    My only criticism is that most companies only need the first half of the book. And many people will think they can skip the first half to get to the “good stuff” in the back. Do yourself a favor: Spend the next year working on the principles from the first half, and only if you’ve felt like your organization has really really nailed it, spend any time at all on the second half of the book." You have been warned! — Edward Nevraumont
