With succinct prose, Robinson describes the inquisitive child who became the visionary leader and offers up irresistible details of Amazon’s early days of packing up orders in Bezos’ garage. Technological asides into advances like the Mosaic browser, book recommendation via artificial intelligence, “1-Click” shopping, and more are well integrated. . . .

Publishing Pioneers – School Library Journal

This series covers a wide range of familiar, but not extensively covered, figures who played critical roles in the world of publishing. . . . The research is solid and there are extensive source notes. With marbled borders and an array of photographs, maps, diagrams, and document reproductions, these books have an engaging and pleasing design. An unusual feature is the “Places to Visit” section, which suggests locations around the world that have relevant collections or displays. Primarily for report writers, these books offer a closer look at some unique individuals.
