Reviews

​“What happens to the Chinese live-streaming market? Ruo Si provides an illuminating analysis of this puzzle. Ruo has shed light on some fundamental and previously undocumented aspects of live-streaming business in this excellent work. This book should be of great interest to researchers and investors alike. A practical and readable guide provides detailed information for the audiences to get the most out of knowledge about the booming live-streaming market in China.”—Yin Hong, Vice Chairman of China Arts Critics Association and Professor of Tsinghua University, China

If you want to enter into the market welly by understanding China’s booming live-streaming business, this is one of the first books I recommend that you read.”—Chen Peng, Vice Dean, School of Journalism and Communication, Nankai University, China
