Book Description

Transformations celebrates the authors, innovators, and small businesses who are thriving thanks to Amazon customers. The seventy-nine trailblazers who tell their stories in these pages have made the most of technologies that, as Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos put it, “allow thousands of people to boldly experiment and accomplish things that would otherwise be impossible or impractical.” In the words of one small-business owner featured in Transformations, “All we needed was that opportunity.” This second edition includes stories from around the world, including Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, the US, and the UK.

The inspiring people in these pages have a message to share with everyone who wants to take a step in the direction of their dreams. As one factory worker turned small-business owner said: “Take the risks, be passionate, and forget the doubters.”

3.0 out of 5 stars Mildly Interesting Promo May 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First off, congratulations to the creatives who are celebrated in this work! You all did a great job, and set a great example of creativity and perseverance. This book reminds me of a "Who's Who" Encyclopedia that puts nice articles in nice books, appealing to the vanity in us all. Of course, the person featured IN the book likes the book, but does anyone else really care?

Well, it's a little like that with Transformations. It's sort of interesting to see what other folks did to succeed, but also a little bit like looking at a "Who's Who" book.

Having said, that, the book is well written and documented. Just not all that interesting--unless YOU are the subject!
