Overview

Summary of the Book

Data is not just the new oil, but also the new gunpowder.”

Kris is a regular Chinese citizen and a firm believer in Chinese supremacy. When Orion – an American Internet giant makes a Machiavellian entry into China, Kris augurs the event will go on to alter the country’s socio-political landscape.

He is proven right when Orion, armed with sophisticated technology, awakens a restrained society from its slumber, stirring a revolution powered by nothing but data.

What is the larger purpose behind this tsunami of events? Will Kris be able to ride the waves or will he be tossed around helpless in the sea of change, falling prey to Information Age’s omnipotent, omniscient Frankenstein?
