The Perfect Store by Adam Cohen
The Perfect Store by Adam Cohen discussed how eBay evolved. Cohen gained insider access to eBay, and he is able to give you a view based on knowledge of Pierre Omidyar--the founder--and other insiders.
- It's well written
- He had access that others didn't have
- It's not going to be critical given the access he had
- The book jumps around a little
If you're interested in how eBay came to be, The Perfect Store is a good read. While it isn't overly critical, it is interesting, and it allows you to see what fueled eBay's success.
