Book Review


The "Digital Master" Book Review

Pearl’s broad knowledge and perspective make her innovative contribution more accessible. Digital business is not exactly what I’m doing, but the insights in her work have broader applications. 

Her knowledge of the particular management challenges facing all levels of business in the digital era is encyclopedic and the respect that she shows for a holistic perspective on the challenges facing all of our cultures lays bare the kind of overarching impact the activities of humanity have on the natural world, as well as the digital.

Great Books to Lead Digital !

Pearl Zhu know what she's talking (or writing) about when it comes to all matters digital. But perhaps even more importantly, she conveys her know-how to readers of Digital Master in words that readers can understand. One doesn't have to be a rocket scientist to comprehend what she's talking about.

Thanks to her years of experience in IT ands related subjects, Pearl's book covers all aspects of the impact of the rapidly moving digital revolution, as well as its impact on businesses large and small, and on society. Her use of acronyms to spell out and clarify various areas of the subject is particularly clever and useful.

It's not often that a book on such a weighty subject can be so readable. but Pearl has succeeded in doing so with Digital Master.

Excellent Guide Books to Drive Changes

The digital culture is fast, it's furious, and it's unforgiving;  especially to those who lag behind: and by 'lag' I mean by as little as months.

It holds great potentials and great cautions, it is unfair to seniors and those without the aptitude or finances to keep up with rapidly-changing digital trends, and it requires of its users (especially those involved in business) a strategic vision that demands innovation and flexibility.

Digital Master is a business guide that takes this culture and its requirements and applies them in a manner different from most linear assessments of either culture or business pursuits, blending the two perspectives to consider not just the changing environments and rapidity of digital pursuits, but how new strategic vision and problem-solving capabilities may evolve from digital emphasis on traditional business processes.
