Look inside the book
*With a foreword by Founder, Chairman and CEO Lei Jun on Xiaomi's tenth anniversary.
Since 2010, Xiaomi has taken the world by storm, going from a smartphone startup to a consumer electronics giant that became the youngest company to make the Fortune Global 500 list. Xiaomi: From Ten to Infinity goes behind the scenes to uncover the company's unique approach to management and business strategy, and how it leveraged the changes in the Chinese domestic consumer market to build a large, loyal following among the youths. Award winning biographer and financial journalist Fan Haitao takes us through the never-before-revealed triumphs and struggles that Xiaomi underwent along the way.
A bestseller in the original Chinese, now translated into English for the first time, the book is an illuminating look at one of the biggest names in tech to watch today.
