SEATTLE, Oct. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Clyde Hill Publishing announced today the release of the second edition of The Amazon Way: 14 Leadership Lessons Behind the World's Most Disruptive Company. Author John Rossman, a former Amazon executive, first published the book in 2014, becoming a top analyst on Amazon strategies.
Rossman's first edition sold tens of thousands of copies worldwide due to massive interest in Amazon and its success. This newly-released second edition features a foreword by Terry Jones, founder of Travelocity and founding chairman of Kayak.com and WayBlazer. It also includes an updated prologue, "Lessons Learned Along the Amazon Way."
"I felt it was important to highlight reactions and common struggles from leaders who read the book and are competing in the digital era," said Rossman, who today is a managing director for the consulting firm of Alvarez & Marsal. "Also, we explore a new leadership Amazon principle, 'Learn and Be Curious,' which Amazon introduced since my book first came out."
"Clyde Hill Publishing is about bringing forward important books that capture the entrepreneurial spirit of founders, innovators and tinkerers," said COO Jesica Church. "John's books draw upon his analysis of Amazon's disruptive strategies, which he translates and brings to life for organizational leaders everywhere."
Brad Stone, author of The Everything Store, writes that, "In The Amazon Way, John Rossman brilliantly illuminates Amazon's secretive corporate culture, using a rare insider's perspective to show how Jeff Bezos has created a unique set of systems that facilitate good decision making at all levels of his company."
Rossman, who ran two of Amazon's platform businesses, is a noted media analyst on Amazon strategy and practices. Today he advises leaders on innovation, technology and digital strategy.
Rossman's second book, The Amazon Way on IoT: 10 Principles for Every Leader from the World's Leading Internet of Things Strategies, will be released November 15, 2016.
