The retail industry is facing unprecedented challenges. Across all sectors and markets, retailers are shifting their business models and customer engagement strategies to ensure their survival. The rise of online shopping, and its primary player, Amazon, is at the heart of many of these changes and opportunities. Amazon explores the e-commerce giant's strategies, providing original insight at a time when the company is on the cusp of revolutionizing itself even further.

Amazon's relentless dissatisfaction with the status quo is what makes it such an extraordinary retailer. This audiobook explores whether Amazon has what it takes to become a credible grocery retailer, and as it transitions to bricks and mortar retailing, explores whether Amazon's stores can be as compelling as its online offering and if innovations such as voice technology, checkout-free stores, and its Prime ecosystem will fundamentally change the way consumers shop.

Written by industry-leading retail analysts who have spent decades providing research-based analysis and opinion, Amazon analyzes the impact these initiatives will have on the wider retail sector and the lessons that can be learned from its unprecedented rise to dominance, as stores of the future become less about transactions and more about experiences.
