The incredible rise of Amazon from scrappy online bookseller to the fastest growing name in retail can mostly be credited to one man: CEO Jeff Bezos. We'll talk to Brad Stone, author of the new book "The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon." In it he chronicles Amazon's meteoric upsurge and the man behind it. We'll discuss Bezos, his business acumen, and what his recent acquisition of the Washington Post means for the media landscape.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Brad Stone, author of "The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon;" and senior writer at Businessweek
