Summaries and Reviews
Summary
Drawing on exclusive interviews with eBay's founder and employees, a journalist provides an inside look at Pierre Omidyar and his creation of the cyberspace giant and traces the company's history from first concept to a revolutionary Internet success. 25,000 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: When Pierre Omidyar decided to start an online auction site, his friends told him he was crazy. But within a few years, Omidyar was worth $4 billion and the company he founded, eBay, was the most successful e-commerce site in history. Once a tiny auction site overrun with Beanie Baby listings, today eBay is a commercial powerhouse where millions of users buy and sell everything from antique pickle jars and record albums to Ford trucks and $40,000 computer servers. Now, in The Perfect Store, award-winning journalist Adam Cohen takes us inside eBay for the first time. Cohen was given greater access to eBay than any reporter ever before. He not only spoke to every important player - including CEO Meg Whitman - but eBay issued him a company ID and gave him a work space in its Silicon Valley headquarters.
The Perfect Store is the perfect book for anyone who wants to get a handle on what works in the Internet economy. And for anyone who wants to explore the life and times of the most vibrant community in cyberspace.
