JEFF BEZOS

Changing The Game By: Having the chutzpah, know-how and persistence to reinvent the book by bringing to market a wireless reading device so good even die-hard book fans are succumbing to it. Created by Amazon's in-house hardware guru Gregg Zehr and his Lab 126, the Kindle 2 quickly replaced the clunker 1.0 version, followed by the new DX designed for newspapers and text books and a Kindle iPhone app. There are other e-readers, but the Kindle integrates Amazon's user-friendly customer interface and service, and offers over 365,000 titles downloaded wirelessly to your device in just a few seconds. Amazon says people with Kindles buy 3.1 times the number of books they did before owning the device. The future of publishing is here -- better get used to it.



Sample (Gushing) Testimonial: Bezos “has built a machine that marks a cultural revolution,” said Slate’s Jacob Weisberg. “Printed books, the most important artifacts of human civilization, are going to join newspapers and magazines on the road to obsolescence.”
