Amazon Rising

 With Amazon the biggest book retailer in North America and overseas, you might be interested in watching CNBC's Amazon Rising Sunday 29 June @ 9 pm. From the press release:
CNBC tells the story of a shrewd visionary named Jeff Bezos who bet his fortunes on the exploding internet and created one of the most admired and feared companies in the world. Today, Amazon sells everything from accordions to zippers – nearly $80 billion worth a year – and has changed the way we shop, bringing goods to our doorstep faster than we ever imagined. Correspondent David Faber reports on a powerhouse that has upended the publishing and retail industries, and faces increasing scrutiny as it extends its reach into the fabric of American life.
