The Real Story Behind Jeff Bezos's Fire Phone Debacle And What It Means For Amazon's Future

Fascinating read. Bezos sounds like a lot of other wealthy founders, I know: eccentric, confident to a fault, and often more concerned about the long game rather than short-term sound decisions.

I think these are admirable qualities in founders actually. The problem is that such a person needs a friend he/she trusts to say, “Ok, no really, you’re being completely unreasonable.” Without that, you eventually get to madness and unsustainable ideas.
