Книжка «Продається все. Джефф Безос та ера Amazon» — не лише історія успіху найбільш інноваційної світової компанії, а й свого роду посібник, інструкція для тих, хто хоче створити свій бізнес. Автор книжки, Бред Стоун, майстерно пише про зародження та розвиток Amazon — від моменту створення компанії на Волл-Стріт на початку 1990-х і дотепер. Ця компанія однією з перших побачила необмежені можливості інтернету та назавжди змінила те, як ми купуємо і читаємо. Також автор розкриває таємниці тріумфу засновника Amazon Джеффа Безоса, одного із найвидатніших керівників, невтомного генератора ідей. Стоун розповідає, як Безос дисципліновано і подекуди педантично втілює новаторські ідеї у життя, як ламає стереотипи, не визнає загальноприйнятих правил, а запроваджує свої.

'This book, with its accompanying DVD, 'NOW I AM A REAL KID' has made it possible for us to witness what David Rosenfeld's treatment of Benjamin, a young boy with a diagnosis of autism, was actually like. We can see for ourselves what was done, what was said; we can follow the steps by which Benjamin moved from being a child without language, in a state of perpetual panic-stricken screaming and flailing about, to being a "real kid" with friendships, doing well at an ordinary school. Witnessing this transformation is a profoundly moving experience. So is hearing the testimony of Benjamin's parents, who had been told repeatedly that there was no future for their son. It was their wish that his therapy should be more widely known about, in the hope that professionals could learn from it so that other families' lives might be transformed as theirs had been through "Dr David's" intervention. Everyone concerned with children with autism is in their debt.'- From the Introduction by Maria Rhode, Emeritus Professor of Child Psychotherapy at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust

The Digital Dictionary is a compilation of easy to understand explanations for technical terms, abbreviations and acronyms that are used in our daily lives and on a daily basis. Not all of us know the real meaning when we talk about gigabyte, DSL or cable modems and USB connectors... but most of us wish they would know! Over nine years of research, hundreds of interviews and thousands of computer hours went into writing this book. With The Digital Dictionary the reader will have a simple way of accessing translations for the most common terms and he or she will finally know the real meaning of today's tech-talk. Since this book was written for the most common buzzwords, it can only contain a limited amount of information because our language, our vocabulary and our tech-talk grows every day. Therefore it is not unusual to come across a section in The Digital Dictionary, where the reader might think a word or abbreviation is missing... however... it is not... it was just not "common" enough to be included. The author does not warrant The Digital Dictionary to be error-free. However - this book was compiled by using due diligence and reasonable common sense, but changes, updates and additions may be necessary to reflect new terms or acronyms in the future.
