1960s Zhongguancun, Beijing. A gang of young scientists toils into the night over the nations first atomic bomb. They have no way of knowing that their work will go on to lay the foundation of Chinas enterprising tech sector, producing the likes of Lenovo, Baidu, ByteDance, and more. With unprecedented access to the key figures behind the rise of Chinese tech giants, literary master, Ning Ken, delves into more than five decades of history and reveals the hidden triumphs and disasters that forged the "Silicon Valley of the East." As China sits on the cusp of global leadership, these are the companies that will champion the material reality of the Asian Century. Based on years of extensive research, the author unveils the humanity that lies behind these products, the innovative leaders and managers that shaped them, and the divergent tomorrow that they are building.
