The book while captures some of the key interviews of Jack Ma that are available in YouTube, the book itself seems to have been written in a hurry to summarise a 600 page biography with no proper flow or connection between events or motivation behind certain actions. Was disappointed to learn very less from a book, which seems like mostly from the Davos interview transcript!
I think this book needs to be acknowledged for its brevity. Having said that, it highlights some of Jack Ma's best quotes and achievements. However, it does not describe his journey very vividly and neither his mistakes that much. I think that when he writes his own stuff, we will see more of it. This book is like a Eulogy to his work.
Light and easy read about one of the biggest name in world business today. It's a very inspiring story about Jack Ma, but what is missed is a proper biography about his struggles and how he became the man he is today. It's more like all public domain information about Jack brought in one place by the author. Could have been a better researched and written book.
I was always curious to know how was Alibaba found and here it is. A story of a common man who shows resilience, hardwork, success and most importantly it teaches you to never give up till you reach your goal.
Customer, employee and investor - different perspective. Since he worked lot before starting business, he understands the importance of employee for the business. I think he don't want to drink on running water rather he want settled pond water. Different location creating high confidence in the minds of customers at different small levels creating bigger base , going on to the top of the situation to know what is happening in the beneath. Base well earn well 👌
