Product description


"eBay's story is amazing, and Mr. Cohen's enthusiasm carries you along.... His prose is brisk and cheerful as the blue-red-gold-etc. of the famous eBay logo."

"A fly-on-the-wall look at how eBay got to be eBay, how a company unlike any other oozed into our consciousness and into our lives and, amidst all the lousy gunk on the Internet that failed, managed to not only remain standing (which, given the Internet bust, would have still been a feat in itself) but profitable."

"Cohen is a thorough reporter who skillfully synthesizes the story of eBay's corporate evolution with profiles of more peripheral figures (e.g., the Indiana housewife who started off pedding old videogames but quickly became the biggest supplier of shipping materials to other eBay sellers)."

Book Description

The story of the most profibable e-commerce site in the world
