I have heard about Alibaba before picking up this book. However, the main reason for picking up this book was to learn more about Jack Ma, even though the main focus is on the beginnings of Alibaba. And I’m so glad that I did, as the story is fascinating and inspiring. It demonstrates how important it’s to be in the right place with the right people. Jack Ma’s story began before the internet was a thing in China, and with the right vision, it isn’t that important that you are first at the beginning of the race. I would highly recommend reading this book, especially if you are working in the tech industry.
