Everywhere I can fact check from personal knowledge, I find way too many inaccuracies, and unfortunately it casts doubt over every episode in the book.
On Stone’s description of Bezos reading ‘Remains of the Day‘ before launching Amazon:
It’s a good beginning, and it weaves in nicely with what’s to come. But it’s not true. Jeff didn’t read ‘Remains of the Day’ until a year after he started Amazon.
Lots of four and five star reviews, though.
While numerous factual inaccuracies are certainly troubling in a book being promoted to readers as a meticulously researched definitive history, they are not the biggest problem here.
