Narrator Jim Meskimen brings an unassuming charm and perfect timing to his performance of this engaging book about the Chinese ecommerce hub Alibaba. Alert to every nuance in the writing--he's a longtime associate of Jack Ma--Meskimen delivers this fast-moving narrative with appealing authority. Starting out as an English teacher in China, Jack Ma found the path to becoming a superstar entrepreneur in the days when the Internet was young and much of China's business took place in street markets. He overcame cultural, technical, and governmental obstacles to reel in the financial partners necessary to grow his Internet sales platform and ultimately defeat U.S. competitors. The story's texture and detail explain the personal and administrative challenges of this entrepreneur's journey, and provide a colorful overview of how China has become an economic juggernaut.
