Only a few books in history garner the attention organically to become something really special—something business leaders react to and change their course of direction. As a book publisher, we know the power of those books and how those books can change the world. Jeff Bezos was able to see into the future and get products into people’s hands globally in ways never before imagined. Now, we are proud to be the publisher of another one of those books. The Bezos Letterswill help businesses worldwide grow and continue to spread ideas and services that help shape and improve the world like Jeff Bezos does. Well done!
