Publisher's Summary

Jack Ma is the quintessential simpleton who has a big heart and wants everyone to share in prosperity. He comes from humble beginnings, had trouble getting to school, had trouble finding a job, but did everything right despite the forces that were arrayed against his intentions.

We all have that life where we feel the world just doesn’t value what we have to offer. Jack certainly felt that way, but eventually he found his stride.

Today he sits at the top of a global behemoth that boasts sales of $1 billion in the first five minutes of its annual sales event. It has almost half a billion active monthly buyers that get on its site to make purchases totaling more than 3 trillion Yuan - or almost half a trillion Dollars. Jack’s company holds the record for IPO on the New York Stock Exchange - and that was in 2014.

This audiobook is about the aspect of success that is unique to Jack and the circumstances that he was cultivated under. We are not all Jacks and we can’t copy his path to success, but we can emulate the areas of his success that come from the parts of him that mirror our own motivation and our own desires.

Jack Ma’s story is one that we need to listen to and understand so that we can put together our own sequence of actions that will yield our own successes.

This book takes you part of the way, the rest is up to you.

Don’t wait any longer! Buy this audiobook now!

A very short bio

A very short bio that lightly touches on the life of Jack Ma and the founding of Alibaba. Easy to listen , and enough to answer basics and provide a background for further listening.

This is one of the more-fun-to-listen

This is one of the more-fun-to-listen business books I've listen, and it offers a ton of information on not only the company, Alibaba, but also eCommerce as it has been, and is, evolving in global markets, and certainly in particular the Chinese market.

This easy

This easy-to-listen book is a timely English-language introduction of Jack Ma history from a public relations perspective, and this history will help one to better understand the growth, scope, and future tendencies of Alibaba.

Interesting listen

Narrator was good. The book gave an indication of how Alibaba and Jack MA operate. This from beginning to set up an Internet giant in China to a household name around the world. Worth listening.

Good but not great

Jack Ma is amazing and the book very informative, but it certainly isn't a chapter turner. difficult with a biog like this but it is a list of facts of Jack's life limited in anecdotes or stories.

Inspiring but cringeworthy

The story is informative, and overall inspiring. Unfortunately the narrator makes a real hash of pronouncing Chinese words and names, of which there are many in the book. It's almost comedic to those who don't speak Chinese, and totally cringeworthy to those who do.

Really good insight

However, would have really benefited from editing to exclude irrelevant details e.g. person X was born y, DOB, etc.

Good overview of the birth and competitive challenges of Alibaba operating in the unique Chinese environment.

A rather disappointing book

It is a very disappointing book which is poor in audio quality. It is also interlaced with promotions which I found irritating and hard to follow. In fact, it is dangerous when you try to listen to this book while driving having to skip silly adverts for other stories such as about Richard Branson etc.
