Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos tops Vanity Fair's "The New Establishment" list for 2016. "When the disrupters become the disrupted, and everyone's in the tech business, it's time for a shake-up in Vanity Fair's annual ranking of Silicon Valley hotshots, Hollywood moguls, Wall Street titans, and cultural icons," the magazine wrote.
In addition to his experimentation with space rockets and artificial intelligence, Bezos was cited for Amazon turning a profit in five consecutive quarters and for "planning a family book club. (He and his wife, MacKenzie, have four children.) On their reading list? Grit by Angela Duckworth, about 'the importance of passion and perseverance,' he says."
