But, this book has made difference with it’s writer from the eastern part of Asia and one of the most selling book to be considered. This person transformed his company from Japan-only to a global business.

Marketplace 3.0 by Hiroshi Mikitani

Hiroshi Mikitani, the founder of e-commerce giant Rakuten, has a wide vision to see the next big leap for the future of the Internet. Rejecting the zero-sum model practiced by some global retailers, who view the Internet purely as an architect of speed-earning process, Mikitani just successfully debated for an alternate model which has multiple benefits for it’s customers, vendors, communities who like every step in the business flow. He foresees retail ‘ecosystems’ where brick-and-mortar businesses around the world create partnership with online retailers to make best use of their customer bases and service competences, and he shows why accentuating association over competition, customization over top-down control, and long-term growth over short-term revenue is ideally the best use of the Internet’s power.
