    ***I was granted an ARC of this via Netgalley from the publisher.*** China has become hard to ignore. After some false starts in the last century, the country has becoming one of the fastest and biggest economies in the world. One sector in which this is happening is technology, with advances in China doing just as well and, in some cases, surpassing Silicon Valley’s innovations. This is explored in the book, Tech Titans of China: How China’s Tech Sector is Challenging the World by Improving Fast ***I was granted an ARC of this via Netgalley from the publisher.*** China has become hard to ignore. After some false starts in the last century, the country has becoming one of the fastest and biggest economies in the world. One sector in which this is happening is technology, with advances in China doing just as well and, in some cases, surpassing Silicon Valley’s innovations. This is explored in the book, Tech Titans of China: How China’s Tech Sector is Challenging the World by Improving Faster, Working Harder & Going Global by Rebecca Fannin. Fannin is a technology writer, author and media entrepreneur that has have extensive experience in China and has written about the country before. Fannin puts that experience to good use by giving an in-depth look at how the technology sector where “China’s game-changers are already on par with and, in some cases, ahead of the United States.” She guides us through the rise of the Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent, three of the biggest tech companies in China and what strategies they are employing that have been key to their success. The reader gets a clear look at their efforts to expand market share, the big M&A’s they make to stay ahead and grow and the up and coming companies that may challenge them. If one comes to this book with the idea that the US is secure with its place on top in the tech sector this book will put that to bed. The author does an excellent job in surveying the fields of shared economy (shared bikes, ride sharing) AI, electric vehicles, drone and robots and showing the advances and innovations these companies have made in these areas. This has prompted many US companies to try to enter the Chinese market, but few have been successful. The ones that have survived, Starbucks, AirBnB and others are highlighted by the author and the reasons for their success explored. The author throughout the book makes it a point to tell the reader that the US at the moment may this be a leader in tech but the work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit of the Chinese may soon see them become where Silicon Valley looks to for inspiration and not the other way around. If you are interested in the growing technology sector of the Chinese economy, then this is the book for you. Rating: 4 stars. Would recommend to a friend interested in Chinese markets and business.

    People's Republic of China (PRC), is the world's most populous country, with a population of around 1.428 billion in 2017 and is the third largest country by area. In Q3 2019, WeChat, the Chinese equivalent of Facebook had 1.15 billion monthly active users. Giving social media to all these people has transformed its society and business. The shear number of people means that apps that are taken on and used can get traction quickly. There was a time when China meant “copying” ideas. In the book, People's Republic of China (PRC), is the world's most populous country, with a population of around 1.428 billion in 2017 and is the third largest country by area. In Q3 2019, WeChat, the Chinese equivalent of Facebook had 1.15 billion monthly active users. Giving social media to all these people has transformed its society and business. The shear number of people means that apps that are taken on and used can get traction quickly. There was a time when China meant “copying” ideas. In the book, Rebecca A. Fannin argues that in less than two decades, China tech innovation has evolved from and gone through three phases of development. From China copying innovation, to invented in China, and now too copy from China. Meaning that US companies duplicate Chinese innovations. Let’s take Uber one of the darlings of the western worlds move to a frictionless economy. This was copied from the Chinese version of WeChat, where you could book a taxi through that app, 5 years before Uber was launched. It’s worth noting that you still cannot book a Taxi through Facebook, the western equivalent of WeChat. Travis Kalanick the X CEO of Uber’s latest venture is to capitalize on the rapid growth of prepared-food delivery sector, now has a stake in City Storage Systems, took controlling interest in U.K.-based FoodStars, a "dark kitchens". This is all about disrupting the home delivery market such as Deliveroo, Just Eat etc. This way of delivering food from a kitchen shared service, is already in operation in China. Rebecca, provides great context as to the history of China’s internet innovative history as well as the Chinese equivalent to Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Larry Page,Travis Kalanick, etc. She talks about the venture money that’s involved and the numbers of users. Want to get an understanding of the Chinese internet, social media and venture capital world, this is worth a read.

    An excellent, current survey of the Chinese technology industry in 2019. An update to the well-founded but out of date perception that Chinese technology companies focus primarily on copying Western technology. Attention is divided between financial figures and business activity across a very broad selection of internet-related companies. There are some hints about other fields like medical technology but the main focus is on the development of mobile social and marketplace applications and well An excellent, current survey of the Chinese technology industry in 2019. An update to the well-founded but out of date perception that Chinese technology companies focus primarily on copying Western technology. Attention is divided between financial figures and business activity across a very broad selection of internet-related companies. There are some hints about other fields like medical technology but the main focus is on the development of mobile social and marketplace applications and well as artificial intelligence (AI). One insight I am reflecting on is the change in the nature of business as we move past an industrial economy. Ridesharing and mobile apps take network integration as their base assumption and build not just one or two, but many businesses that would have seemed unrealistic a decade ago. That is not just a China story but this book inherently highlights an extreme case and helps to understand an important and pervasive shift in society. Internet companies in China have always had to deal with data at massive scale. This has given their developers an intuitive approach to advancing AI. Solid AI, in turn, drives advances in autonomous cars, robotics, communications, and drones. There is now clearly a self-reinforcing dynamic of technological advance happening. This is not a balanced analysis, it is mostly positive as it should be. But there is more criticism than we sometimes get in this kind of survey. Poor business models and safety challenges inherent to businesses are discussed candidly. This book represents a great deal of research. It demonstrates a remarkable breadth across many businesses and importantly shows a qualitative change in Chinese business that many people in North America do not yet perceive.

    It has been a while since the last time I’ve read about the tech companies in China. Every time I read a new book about this topic I learn new things. This may reflect how fast innovation is going on in China today. This book is full of information on how tech companies in China such as Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent, and others shape the digital landscape of the world. China is increasingly becoming a powerhouse of technological innovation in a very rapid way.

    The book is full of information and statistics which paint a very clear picture of what is the current situation in China regarding technology. Although the book might be considered a little bit outdated now that I read in 2019, what I get from the book can help me project the future and understand the current situation better. I had many 'WOW' while I was reading this book. It contained many aspects such as politics, business and economics. In short, it's very worth reading.

    It was ok, a bit of colour on the companies themselves (eg. I understand what Pinduoduo does now) but mailny read like a quick synopsis of venture capital investments. Very rah-rah, the author is friends with the entire VC community there and makes money reporting on their activities. Only 200 pages, not very rewarding but not taxing and I guess I learned something.

    This is a frustrating book because while we can all acknowledge the great strides China's internet & technology has made, this book is very, very heavy in its praise while completely ignoring or quickly glazing over the many issues and negatives (copying, subsidizing, government intervention, etc).

    Useful in the sense that there's a lot of info about key players, top Chinese tech companies, venture funds, etc. Other than that I found it a bit dry and unengaging.

    A brief overview of the technology scene in China. The book was more like a Forbes article instead of an industry deep dive.

    China technology is real now This book changed my perceptions on Chinese being a copycat with crappy quality to the the world leader in breakthrough innovation and initiative. I have just realized that TikTok and DJI are originated in China.
