NEW YORK (AP) -- The wife of Jeff Bezos (BAY'-zohs) is giving a thumbs-down to a recent book about her husband's company, Amazon.com Inc.

On Monday, MacKenzie Bezos posted a one-star review on the Amazon page for Brad Stone's "The Everything Store," which came out last month and has been received positively by critics and Amazon readers. Bezos wrote that the book was filled with inaccuracies and biased against her husband and Amazon. Spokeswoman Sarah Gelman of Seattle-based Amazon confirmed that the review was indeed written by MacKenzie Bezos.

Stone is a senior writer for Bloomberg Businessweek. As of Monday evening, his book ranked No. 109 on Amazon's best seller list. "The Everything Store" is being billed as a rare look inside a "corporate culture of relentless ambition and secrecy," a portrait Bezos is strongly disputing.
