ABAW Challenge #5 – Alibaba – The House That Jack Ma Built

Another week into the A Book A Week Challenge and the book I picked was Alibaba – The House That Jack Ma Built by @duncanclark

This book narrates how Jack Ma built Alibaba, one of the world’s most valuable companies.


As mentioned in my previous post, I wanted to ensure that I read a biography every month as part of my ABAW challenge. A book on Jack Ma and Alibaba was obviously the first choice because I have been hearing a lot and following closely Alibaba for quite some time.

Today, Alibaba is one of the most valuable companies in the world and they are no more just an e-commerce portal (as previously thought). This book helped me to shape a better picture of Jack Ma and Alibaba. The narration of the humble beginning of Alibaba and how Jack Ma reacted to the challenges are very inspiring.

 Alibaba – The House That Jack Ma Built is certainly one of the best books I read this year.

The following books are in my reading list for next week. I will pick one of the books from the list below.
