A new book detailing the founding of Internet retail giant Amazon (AMZN) has received a big thumbs down from the wife of the company’s founder.
Naturally, MacKenzie Bezos took to Amazon itself to pan The Everything Store by Brad Stone. She gave the book just one-star (out of a possible five) and criticized the book as containing “too many inaccuracies,” USA TODAY notes.
Other readers thought more highly of the book, with 30 giving it five-star reviews. Bezos’ review was initially the most negative and offered the lowest number of stars, but has since been joined by at least two other one-star reviews.
Stone told USA TODAY that he stood by his work but “will gladly fix” any errors. He added that Jeff Bezos was offered the chance to fact-check the book, but passed on the opportunity.
In her review, MacKenzie Bezos said that the book offered a “lopsided and misleading portrait of the people and culture at Amazon.”
