Alibaba The House That Jack Ma Built
Alibaba The House That Jack Ma Built
An engrossing, insider's account of how a teacher built one of the world's most valuable companies-rivaling Walmart and Amazon-and forever reshaped the global economyIn just a decade and a half, Jack Ma, a man from modest beginnings who started out as an English teacher, founded Alibaba and built it into one of the world's largest companies, an e-commerce empire on which hundreds of millions of Chinese consumers depend. In 2014, Alibaba's $25 billion IPO was the largest global IPO in history. A Rockefeller of his time, who is courted by CEOs and presidents around the world, Jack is an icon for China's booming private sector and the gatekeeper to hundreds of millions of middle-class consumers. Duncan Clark first met Jack in 1999 in the small apartment where Jack founded Alibaba. Granted unprecedented access to a wealth of new material, including exclusive interviews, Clark draws on his own experience as an early adviser to Alibaba as well as his two decades in China chronicling the Internet's impact on the country to create an authoritative, compelling narrative account of Alibaba's rise.How did Jack overcome his humble origins and early failures to achieve massive success with Alibaba How did he outsmart rival entrepreneurs from both China and Silicon Valley Can Alibaba maintain its 80 percent market share As it forges ahead into finance and entertainment, are there limits to Alibaba's ambitions How does the Chinese government view its rise Will Alibaba expand farther overseas, including into the United StatesClark tells Alibaba's tale in the context of China's momentous economic and social changes, illuminating an unlikely corporate titan as never before.Advance Praise For Alibaba"Anybody who thinks the Chinese just copy or steal technology from the West should read this book and think again. Jack Ma is part Bill Gates, part Steve Jobs, part Larry Page, part Sergey Brin, and part Mark Zuckerberg, all rolled into one."-Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO of WPP "Duncan Clark gets into the heart and soul of Alibaba and its founder, Jack Ma, who deftly maneuvered through the discontinuities and barriers in China to create one of the greatest companies in the world. China has thrived under the leadership of Jack Ma. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the present China and the heartbeat of a great entrepreneur."-Tim Draper, founder of Draper Associates, DFJ, and Draper University"This book provides excellent insight into the world of Jack Ma, perhaps the most famous of the leaders of the new economy in China. Duncan Clark is a real China `Old Hand,' unique in his knowledge of the Jack Ma generation. This book is definitely on the short list for those who wish to understand the Chinese economy today."-Ken Wilcox, Chairman Emeritus, Silicon Valley Bank

Becoming the Evidence Based Manager
Becoming the Evidence Based Manager
Over the past decade, the call for evidence-based management has been on the rise. Managers have become increasingly skeptical of advice that is based soley on anecdotes, otherwise known as the "art of management"; they demand, instead, proof that the management practices espoused by the authors in the field are truly effective. Becoming the Evidence-Based Manager delivers the goods, covering a wide range of critical management skills, such as hiring, inspiring, training, developing, motivating and coaching. Readers are rewarded with a thorough understanding of how to put the science of management to work for themselves and their organizations.

An organizational psychologist by training and experience, author Gary Latham brings a unique perspective to the art-versus-science debate as he underscores the critical role that empirical research plays in successfully hiring and managing employees. Latham advocates using the "situational" interview style in the hiring process over the "free-flowing" one, for example, as it's proven more effective in assessing a candidate's skills and aptitude.

Written in an accessible, conversational style, Becoming the Evidence-Based Manager draws upon 50 years of management research, and provides front-line managers with key lessons and tips to help them put research to everyday use on the job. From hiring and training to supervising and appraising, managers and leaders will learn proven techniques for achieving high performance from their employees.

Breakfast Club for 40 Somethings
Breakfast Club for 40 Somethings
By the mid 2030's Australia will see the biggest intergenerational wealth transfer in its history.

Good news if you're Gen X. In little over a decade (you) will inherit all the wealth. Research suggests this could amount to more than $3 trillion dollars.

But, there's a huge problem.

Gen X is the least experienced generation in our history at managing the vast amount of wealth coming their way.

To make matters worse, Gen X is one of if not the most time poor generations in our history - job demands in an increasingly competitive global market, mortgages, school fees, ageing parents and a lot of responsibility.

Gen X now face some troubling challenges if they are to master money in time to make a difference.

After so many decades of continuous economic growth, Gen X has grown to love debt and become overly familiar with excess - and unfamiliar with risk.

There's also a growing backdrop of social issues such as addiction, obesity, mental health and the fragmenting of the family unit.

Gen X has a large burden on their shoulders

Succeed and they stand to be able to turn their windfalls and their super into a vast asset into which all Australians may benefit from in the long run.

Fail and we will face an economic tsunami...

This book draws upon the five major lessons Gen X needs to UNLEARN about the way they see money before they get their hands on this wealth transfer.

The five UNLEARN lessons are grounded in how we were bought up (what our parents taught us), what our community told us (what friends and family teach us about money) and our decision making style.

The reader is encouraged to think about what two lessons they need to unlearn about Money before they are ready to take on financial responsibility.

Through interviews with a wide range of celebrities from Baby Boomer, GenX and beyond we draw upon the wisdom and insight from people familiar to X and their parents; such as Michael Parkinson, Maggie Beer , Kate Cebrano, Jeffrey Archer, Anthony Minichello, Anthony Field, Naomi Simpson , George Negus, and many more.
