Comments from some of those who selected Amazon as one of their Top Tools 

  • “I’m adding this to my list in 2008, because in recent years it has grown to be much more than just an online store. Because of its Web 2.0 features, most notably user ratings and reviews, I don’t make any major purchases without first going to Amazon (and a few other such sites) to read the good, bad, and ugly from others who have bought the particular product.”  Thomas Stone
  • Probably the finest website anywhere. I use Amazon as a research tool both seriously and when I am “just looking”.  In music, video and especially books – I spend a lot of time at this site!”  Vaughan Waller
