As noted in this New York Times article, Jeff Bezos hasn’t made a statement about the new biography about him and his company…but his wife has.
Mackenzie Bezos, an author whose education spans Hochkiss and Princeton, made her feelings known on the Amazon page for the biography. She used her own name to do it. It isn’t surprising that the review has garnered significant attention. But that attention has included discussion of the content of her review, too. By stepping up and using her name in what is most often an anonymous forum, she earned her views a mainstream forum. In a world where anonymous reviews prevail too often, her willingness to step up to the plate is a role model in transparency.
