Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, swears by these three books

Have you ever wondered what makes electronic commerce company, Amazon so successful? What is it that makes them worth billions of dollars? Well, according to Amazon.com founder, Jeff Bezos – it‘s a lot of hard work and some enlightening books.
Considering the fact that Amazon started out as a book retailer, and then continued on to bringing the e-book market to a global scale, it comes as no surprise that Bezos swears by 3 books that are used as frameworks for sketching out the future of Amazon.
During the past American summer, Bezos hosted three, all-day book clubs with Amazon‘s top executives. During these all-day book clubs, he gave his executives three books to read. Three books, that, according to him is a contributing factor to the success of his mammoth company.
Keeping in mind that Amazon‘s share‘s have climbed tremendously this past year – it has gone up by almost 22% – you should definitely be interested in these three books Bezos swears by.
Also, Amazon purchased the struggling Washington Post, a newspaper company, for a whopping $250 million. This is yet another testament to Bezos‘ love for the written word and how he (and by effect, his company) is influenced by the writings of others.
So, if you are eager to start a company that could possibly be as big as Amazon one day, these are the three books you should get your hands on, ASAP:

  1. The Effective Executive by Peter Drucker
  2. The Innovator‘s Solution by Clayton Christensen
  3. The Goal by Eliyahu Goldratt

Wondering where you can get hold of these books? Well, obviously, they are all available on Amazon.com.
