Mrs. Jeff Bezos Writes a 1-Star Review of the New 'Amazon' Book

The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon - Brad Stone

I thought you guys might find this an interesting debate over Amazon's review practices. 

 

Earlier today MacKenzie Bezos, Jeff Bezos wife, wrote a 900 word critical 1-star review of the book The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon by Brad Stone.

 

Some people believe her review is biased, and questions her ethics and impartiality.  Others, feel she is a most qualified source to set the inaccuracies straight.

 

Both sides have a point I guess, but IMO I thought it was a most excellent review.

 

The LA Times is also having a go at determining if she was being fair, or if this is just the Amazon way.
