Jeff Bezos File Photo

Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Barack Obama have some things in common, they are all successful and admired men. They are all fanatics of books and reading those. Bezos, has even said on a few occasions that some books left their mark on him and helped him become one of the millionaires in the world.

Amazon started out as an online book-selling site to begin with. Can you tell that how much Jeff Bezos loves books? The answer is here. He spent much of his career making sure to create change in the way we are produced and consumed, giving smaller titles and unknown authors a platform.

On the list is a bit of fiction, a few biographies of important people. Of course, books that have to do with technology and business are Bezos’ spin on companies.

The books that made Jeff Bezos successful: 

The Remains of the Day

Author: Kazuo Ishiguro

The good news is that, if you’re not much of a reader, you can watch the film adaptation with Anthony Hopkins. This is a novel that tells the story of a butler who reminisces about his days serving as a soldier in World War II, before working for a wealthy British family. Bezos said that he learned more from this book than any other.

Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies

Author: Jim Collins

This essential book for entrepreneurs reveals some of the secrets to making a company successful and lasting, discussing the importance of employees understanding and wanting to follow the core mission. Bezos said that he was deeply involved in the world created by the author.

Creation: Life and Ho to Make It

Author: Steve Grand

This book talks about daring to create new things and exploring other possibilities, which is something that Amazon has not stopped doing.

“A video game designer argues that intelligent systems can be created from the bottom up if one designs a set of primitive building blocks,” writes Stone. “The book was influential in the creation of Amazon Web Services , or AWS, the service that popularized the notion of the cloud.”

This is the autobiography of the founder of Walmart, where he explains how he created his successful company and what are its most important principles, as well as the values ​​​​that have been upheld until now. One of the key points is the openness to try new things and make mistakes, this in order to grow.

The Black Swan

Author: Nassim Taleb

No, it has nothing to do with the Natalie Portman movie. Bezos said that this book provides something very important, an escape.

“The scholar argues that people are programmed to see patterns in chaos while remaining blind to unpredictable events, with massive consequences. Experimentation and empiricism trump the easy, obvious narrative,” Stone said.

The Innovator’s Dilemma

Author: Clayton Christensen

This book explains the importance of innovation with a disruptive character, it is even one of the most recommended by Michael Bloomberg, CEO of Bloomberg.

This was the book that led to the creation of Kindle, under the idea that something new and different is not going to alienate people, but can give you a new business opportunity and end up changing the world. Christensen says that resisting change is a big mistake.
