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!

This book is a scam

The book is 3hr length. Only half of the time is about Jack Ma and telling something that we already know. The other half is about Richard Branson. Yes a book about Jack Ma with half of the time on Richard.
I’m going to return this book.

Nice book

Great insight into one of the most unlikely and fascinating stories of the 20th and 21st centuries. Alibaba may still grow to be the largest corporation by market cap on earth. Amazing job, Jack.

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.

A must listen

The book focuses on the lessons that Jack Ma, CEO of Alibaba learnt during his life and now wants to pass it on to others. It is all about how a small business idea can prosper, how one should not be scared of rejection, how one would eventually be able to unlock the key to success, so on and so forth. Lovely to listen.

Thank you, JR MacGregor , for sharing this inspiring journey of the founders of Alibaba and how we can apply this motivation in our every day lives and business.

Highly recommended

Highly recommended listen this book. Super insight into the scale of Alibaba's operations and its ambitions for future expansion. This is a valuable illustration of what it takes to be successful in China and demonstrates why eBay's Western approach was doomed. The wise advice and lessons from Jack Ma are very thought provoking. Loved it.

The founding story

In some ways, the story is like that of any startup, albeit this one is storming and forming in a rapidly evolving Chinese market. The author does a great job of explaining the context and offering a glimpse into the forces driving the rise of commerce in China.
In short, a great startup story with lots of insights on what it takes to succeed . Great to listen
