Amazon and Zappos in a tree

This CEO Letter from Tony Hsieh announcing the Amazon takeover on Zappos is the funniest and most interesting CEO letter I've ever read. Don't miss the "Will we get a discount at Amazon?", "I'm a business/financial reporter. Can you talk like a banker and use fancy-sounding language that we can print in a business publication?" or "Can you talk like a lawyer now?" parts.

Jeff Bezos video is worth watching too:

Granted, those are among the funniest and most interesting CEOs too.

P.S. more fun from the trenches: Liveblogging The Jeff Bezos Zappos Video.
