Many years ago Jack Ma was just an English teacher who has struggled to survive, today, he’s the founder of one of the most valuable, one of the most visited, and one of the most largest companies in the world, called Alibaba, for which I hope you're familiar with. This biography of his life and of his company, written by his friend Duncan Clark, shares Jack Ma’s humble beginnings and his road from mediocrity toward riches. It was far from easy for Mr. Ma to reach the top on which he gloriously stands today, but nevertheless, according to him, it was worth all the effort, and every penny he’s invested in it. This biography of his life and his company to some extent, clearly shows that Jack Ma is the kind of person that you can seriously count on to bring laughter and seriousness simultaneously to the room, and it clearly shows that he’s a very smart businessman and a very great leader. Which I didn’t doubt at at all, since I’ve seen his interviews and have heard so many nice things about him from people who have seen him live. In any case, this book is perfect for those people who wish to learn more of Jack Ma’s business and personal life and perhaps when the timing is right for them, follow his footsteps, and maybe someday enter his shoes. I’m well aware though that many people have criticized this book and that it’d gotten a lot of bad reviews because of Mr. Clark’s writing style, but to me, it was a perfect way to spend free time and learn something new of Jack Ma's life and his company's past, present, and possible future, and I honestly wish that I could learn more about this admirable man someday and perhaps work with him if an opportunity ever presents itself to me. For, I can honestly say thar I admire this man for what he's done so far and for what I can say with certainty he's going to do with his company in the future.
