Our thoughts on this book

This is the story of how internet entrepreneur Jack Ma became the richest man in Asia. The book is a mix of biography and business philosophy. It describes Alibaba’s journey from a small team in an cramped apartment to a multi-billion dollar global conglomerate. Also interestingly it delves into the politics of China, the foundations of the internet there and the rise of a new capitalist class of tech entrepreneurs.

Overall this is an inspirational story about following your dreams and finding success. Highly recommended for those wondering how Alibaba beat the competition and where ‘Jack Magic’ is headed next.
