One click : Jeff Bezos and the rise of Amazon.com by Richard L Brandt( Book )
21 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,058 libraries worldwide
"An insightful look at how Amazon really works and how its founder and CEO makes it happen. Amazon's business model is deceptively simple: make online shopping so easy and convenient that customers won't think twice. It can almost be summed up by the button on every page: Buy now with one click. Why has Amazon been so successful? Much of it has to do with Jeff Bezos, the CEO and founder, whose unique combination of character traits and business strategy have driven Amazon to the top of the online retail world. Originally a computer nerd rather than a businessman, he had the vision to capitalize on the untapped online marketplace for bookselling and continues to discover new market opportunities, from groceries to auto parts. He's a calculating machine, high energy, passionate, highly aggressive, and out to radically transform retail. Through numerous interviews with Amazon employees, competitors, and observers, Richard Brandt has deciphered how Bezos thinks, what drives his actions, and how he makes decisions. Anyone in business can learn a lot from the example of Amazon's ongoing evolution. "

"In Capital Instincts: Life As an Entrepreneur, Financier, and Athlete, you'll follow Thom Weisel from his youth as an extraordinarily talented athlete from Milwaukee, to his present position as one of the most influential investment bankers of our time. He rejected the New York financial scene in 1969 to join the entrepreneurs of Silicon Valley, taking public such companies as Amgen, Micron Technology, Siebel Systems, and Yahoo! He may be one of the last of a generation of influential financial entrepreneurs in a world now dominated by giant conglomerates."--BOOK JACKET

8 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 173 libraries worldwide
How much do you really know about Google's founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin' The Google Guys skips past the general Google story and focuses on what really drives the company's founders. Richard L. Brandt shows the company as the brainchild of two brilliant individuals and looks at Google's business decisions in light of its founders' ambition and beliefs. Larry is the main strategist, with business acumen and practical drive, while Sergey is the primary technologist and idealist, with brilliant ideas and strong moral positions. But they work closely together, almost like complementary halves of a single brain. Through interviews with current and former employees, competitors, partners, and senior Google management, plus conversations with the founders themselves, Brandt demystifies the company while clarifying a number of misconceptions

2 editions published in 2012 in Italian and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Amazon.com il "supermercato" del web più grande del mondo, colosso del commercio elettronico (e non solo di libri) e motore di innovazione a livello globale, deve molto al suo fondatore e CEO Jeff Bezos, un personaggio originale, nerd tecnologico e imprenditore appassionato, oggi considerato il vero erede di Steve Jobs. Su di lui non sono stati scritti molti libri, e Bezos stesso si è limitato a esternazioni e interviste "controllate" in occasione dei lanci di prodotti e dei passaggi importanti della sua azienda. In questa biografia Richard Brandt, giornalista della Silicon Valley, svela molti aneddoti e particolari inediti sul personaggio e sul modello di business che ha portato Amazon a creare da zero il settore del commercio online e a trainare da quasi vent'anni l'innovazione tecnologica e culturale. In particolare, il volume racconta: come Jeff Bezos ha deciso di lanciare una libreria online e ne ha scelto il nome e la mission; perché Amazon difende con zelo alcuni brevetti - come quello che permette di comprare un prodotto con un solo click del mouse - , mentre altri li condivide liberamente; perché nel 1997 il fondatore riteneva che realizzare profitti fosse la cosa più stupida da fare; perché ha deciso di consentire le review negative dei prodotti, immaginando giustamente che la fiducia guadagnata avrebbe superato le vendite eventualmente perse; in che modo Amazon.com ha ha rivoluzionato e continua a influire sul mercato librario
