Jeff Bezos Playing Cheese

Steve Jobs was known for his tirades, but the book The Everything Store made known Jeffisms. Bezos famously demands perfection like the legendary Apple founder and is characterized by a laugh that cuts through rooms like an evil super villan and demanding a level of perfection from everyone around him that is displayed through these Jeffisms. Bezos like Jobs delivered sharp daggers of quotes in meetings that could stop an employee’s heart cold when they missteped.
